Upset Watch

Surprise 2011-12 game Texas Tech will win: 

JL: Home against Kansas State

MP: Baylor at Texas Tech. Huge talent discrepancy, but the Bears don't have a ton of experience in the backcourt and the game is very early in conference play (meaning it'll be one of each team's first real games).

EP: Really any conference game will be an upset, so I'll go with the Oral Roberts game in Tulsa. ORU is good -- and beat Mizzou at ORU a few years ago -- but I think Tech can win this one.

Surprise 2011-12 game the Red Raiders will lose: 

JL: Home against Oklahoma

EP: At TCU. The Horned Frogs aren't good, but the game is a trap for the Red Raiders.

EP: 3-15.
