2010 Alamo Bowl Odds: Michigan State vs. Texas Tech Pick: January 2nd 2010
While Mike Leech has been fired, the Players do not seem too broken up about it. This team will rally around Interim coach McNeil, who is a firey defensive minded coach. The DEFENSE in fact may play a bigger role than the offense for Tech. Texas Tech is playing a team who suspended 9 players, many of them starters including a go to WR for the Spartans. Michigan State lost 3 out of their last 5 games, and cannot trade punches with Tech on offense. Word is Texas Tech has ralllied around this controversy and will have a strong home field here playing in San Antonio as well. Always a good game, this Alamo Bowl goes to the team who can oversome adversity, as both teams have had, but the DEPTH in Talent on the field favors Texas Tech.Taylor Potts at QB for Texas tech knows this offense and will dink and dunk all night. This Tech team lit up Nebraskas vaunted defense in Lincoln for 31 points, they will score in this one.
