Red Raider Football is Coming Back!

Before we even think about the 2014 Spring Game set for Saturday, April 12 at the Jones, let’s rewind a little.

In the spring of 2013, the Red Raider nation was finally reunited after the crowning of our new head coach and former gunslinger, Kliff Kingsbury. 2013 was going to be Texas Tech’s breakout year with the likes of Jace Amaro, Eric Ward, a trio of speedy running backs and of course, our quarterbacks. Although the team received less than favorable predictions from Big 12 pundits, they used that as motivation en route to a blazing fast start.

The Red Raiders went 7-0 before a string of injuries on both sides of the ball led to five straight losses to finish out Big 12 play. We were down, but not out and a bid to the Holiday Bowl was just what the Red Raiders needed. On paper, we were outmanned and outgunned. And then Davis Webb happened. Behind a stellar offensive performance, the Red Raiders did what many thought was impossible and upset the then #14 Arizona State Sun Devils to win the 2013 Holiday Bowl.

The question is: what will 2014 look like?

Only time will tell what 2014 has in store for us. What we do know is that it is going to be an exciting one with an amazing home schedule that will feature pivotal matchups against familiar faces like UT and Oklahoma, including a Big 12/SEC battle against the Arkansas Razorbacks.
