- Saturday's game will mark the 53rd meeting between Texas Tech and Texas, with the Longhorns holding a decisive 38-14 edge in the all-time series. However, this Big 12 rivalry has become much more competitive recently. The Red Raiders beat the Longhorns in 2002 and came up three points shy of an upset last year.

RB Cedric Benson leads the NCAA in rushing yards per game.
