Lubbock Super Regional Prediction

This is another of the few Super Regionals that do not involve teams from the SEC. You might wonder why there wasn’t Arkansas-Oklahoma State and Texas Tech-Ole Miss Supers but, you see, they want to avoid six teams from the SEC being in Omaha. Those SEC teams are rough. These two Big 12 teams are pretty darn good though. Both have strong RPIs and could end up winning the CWS. However, statistically, Tech has the edge in pitching, hitting and fielding. The Red Raiders also swept Oklahoma State in Lubbock this season. Two of the three wins were by lopsided scores. Oklahoma State 2 wins, Texas Tech 1 win.
