Intangibles
Since this series has been held in the Metroplex the last 11 years, Baylor might need directions to Jones AT&T Stadium. The Bears haven’t played in Lubbock since 2008 in Art Briles’ first season as head coach. Fans are usually rowdy but that shouldn’t be such a factor this time since the stadium will be at 25 percent capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. This will likely be Baylor’s best shot to win a road game since its only remaining trip is to Norman on Dec. 5, but Texas Tech knows it badly needs to win this home game.

As for his own job security, it’s doubtful that is even in jeopardy. He’s in the second year of six-year contract and because of the money lost in the middle of pandemic, the university doesn’t have the cash for a buyout.

But if there’s no sign of progress over the final three games of the regular season, there will be some pressure on the head coach to make some internal changes.
