    The No. 20 LSU Tigers will meet the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Houston on Dec. 29 for the Texas Bowl.

    The Tigers (8-3, 5-3 SEC) are back in the postseason for a 16th straight time and the 46th in school history. LSU got off to a great start in 2015 winning its first seven games, but crashed down the stretch losing three straight before beating Texas A&M last time out. With rumors of their head coach potentially being fired, the Tigers rallied from a 7-6 deficit to score two second-half touchdowns and seal the victory. Leonard Fournette got back to his Heisman-esque self as he was given 32 carries that he turned into 159 yards and a late touchdown that put the game away. Fournette ended the day as LSU’s single-season rushing leader at 1,741 yards, breaking Charles Alexander’s record of 1,686 set in 1977. LSU has lost three of its last four bowl games. The last postseason victory for the Tigers was a 21-14 win over Iowa in the 2014 Outback Bowl.

    The Red Raiders (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) are bowl bound for the first time since 2013 and 36th time in program history. Texas Tech had an up-and-down regular season in 2015, but managed to finish with some consistency winning its final two games. Last time out, the Red Raiders edged by Texas, 48-45, in Austin. In a back-and-forth shootout, Texas Tech grabbed a late lead with 6:18 to play, tacked on another touchdown and staved off a Texas rally to capture the win. A solid day from Patrick Mahomes was good news for the Raiders offense as he led the way with 442 total yards and two touchdowns. DeAndre Washington (28 car, 173 yards, 2 TD) led a Texas Tech backfield in which every rusher scored a touchdown, while Ian Sadler (6 rec, 108 yards) and Jakeem Grant (2 rec, 105 yards, TD) each topped 100 yards receiving. The Red Raiders have won four straight bowl games coming into this one, their last being a 37-23 win over Arizona State in the 2013 Holiday Bowl in Kliff Kingsbury’s first season as head coach.

    The 2015 Texas Bowl will mark the third meeting between LSU and Texas Tech and the first since 1957. The Tigers won the two previous matchups in 1954 and 1957.

    Prediction

    Mr. Fournette is going to be the star of the bowl season with an epic day. Is a 300-yard performance asking for too much? Not against this run defense. A bad bowl game over the last several years – only the 2012 Texas Tech thriller over Minnesota stands out – with five of the last seven decided by double-digits, if LSU wants it, it’ll come up with a statement.
