Texas Tech Red Raiders football
Texas Tech is having a considerably different season than last year when they were undefeated through six games.
Texas Tech has extended football coach Kliff Kingsbury’s contract for three seasons through 2020. Kingsbury already was under a five-year deal through 2017.
The Texas Supreme Court has denied Mike Leach’s appeal in his wrongful termination lawsuit against Texas Tech University.
The first college football game of 2011 is a bowl that’s never been held before, pitting unranked 7-5 teams that have never met and have little in common. At least the early risers tuning in for the TicketCity Bowl between Texas Tech and Northwestern might recognize the setting — the Cotton Bowl.
