Not very long ago, Texas Tech was undefeated and 10th in the polls. The Red Raiders are now 27-point underdogs on a neutral site. Oh, and Southern Miss, 2012 Conference USA champion and (until recently) owners of a nearly two-decade streak of winning records, is a 17-point underdog ... at home ... to Florida Atlantic.
