One of the nation's top college basketball programs is in danger of losing its second game of the season.

No. 2 Duke entered its contest against No. 12 Texas Tech with a 10-1 record, though after one half of play it looks like the Blue Devils are in for a dogfight.

After 20 minutes, Texas Tech leads the contest by one point after entering the game as a 10-point underdog. The Red Raiders, who sit at 10-0 on the year, are hoping to hold off the Blue Devils in the second half to pull off the significant upset.

Texas Tech entered the contest as one of, it not the, best defensive team in the country and it's showing why. The Blue Devils have just 28 first-half points and star Zion Williamson has three fouls after just 20 minutes.

Texas Tech enters the half with a 29-28 lead.

Can the Red Raiders hold on to defeat the sizable favorite? Or will Duke finally wake up and take control of the contest?
