Texas Tech vs Baylor is Officially a Blackout
Texas Tech football is 14-12 while wearing all black since 2009. On Saturday, they'll have the chance to move to 15-12 this weekend against Baylor because the Red Raiders are having themselves a good old-fashioned blackout.
The Red Raiders will also be looking to stay undefeated at home after beating Murray State, Houston, Texas, and West Virginia to start the season. Baylor heads to Lubbock with an identical record as Texas Tech with a loss outside of the conference and a 2-2 record in Big 12 play. Baylor and Texas Tech have both lost to Oklahoma State, but Baylor lost to West Virginia in Morgantown, while Texas Tech beat them in Lubbock.
The game this weekend will be at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 29th in front of a sold-out crowd at the Jones. Night games have been good to Texas Tech since 2002 with a record of 44-18 at home in that time with night kickoffs, according to Texas Tech Athletics.
The weekend will also feature a trio of inductions:
The Baylor game will highlight an exciting weekend on campus as Texas Tech will host its Hall of Fame and Hall of Honor induction ceremony Friday evening at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center. This year’s class represents two former football greats in Kevin Curtis and then the late Tommy McVay, who will be enshrined in the Hall of Honor for his longtime service as Director of Football Operations.
Texas Tech will also welcome back Patrick Mahomes II on Saturday as he will become the eighth member of the Texas Tech Ring of Honor during a halftime presentation presented by American State Bank. Mahomes will return to his alma mater during the Chiefs’ open week to officially see his name go on the wall of the West Stadium Building to Jones AT&T Stadium.
