LUBBOCK, Texas – The Big 12 Conference announced Monday an 11 a.m. kickoff for Texas Tech’s conference opener at Texas on Sept. 25. Coverage will be provided nationally on ABC and the Texas Tech Sports Network.
The Red Raiders’ trip to Austin will be the first of two road games to kick off Big 12 play in 2021. It marks the first time since 2014 where the Red Raiders started their league slate on the road for the first two contests. Tech’s last win on the road in Austin was a 27-23 triumph in 2017, which is also the Red Raiders’ last win versus the Longhorns having dropped its last three bouts.
Texas Tech (2-0, 0-0) welcomes Florida International to Lubbock this Saturday to cap nonconference play in 2021. Meanwhile, Texas (1-1, 0-0) will close its nonconference slate with a home game against Rice.
