4. Home Field Advantage

No opposing team likes playing in Jones AT&T Stadium, and no one likes traveling to Lubbock, either–sorry Red Raider fans. I believe it is one of college football’s most underrated stadiums, and it will definitely be an advantage for Texas Tech this weekend.

Texas Tech usually packs 57,932 people into their stadium, but expect that number to be upwards of 59,000 when TCU comes to town. Red Raider fans usually come out for games like this.

The last time TCU played Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas Tech broke their record for student attendance (16,092). The Horned Frogs were ranked #24 then, so I think we could see the record broken again with the magnitude of this game.

It also helps that the fans have something to be excited about. Sometimes being the underdog is fun, especially in college football. Don’t be surprised to see some rowdy Red Raider fans on Saturday, and maybe even some tortillas.
