Texas Tech kicks off its 90th season of football on Saturday when the Red Raiders play host to Central Arkansas at 6 p.m. in Jones AT&T Stadium.
Momentum is a powerful force in sports. On the football field, it can manifest itself into an impactful opportunity for success. One big tackle or clutch catch can inspire teammates and build a swelling confidence that can translate to victories. On the basketball court, a breakaway dunk can lift the home crowd to new heights, and its collective voice can in turn embolden the players it supports.
Texas Tech University and head football coach Kliff Kingsbury have reached an agreement that will extend his contract an additional three seasons, keeping him with the Red Raiders through 2020.
Erik Book still recalls the heightened anticipation surrounding the Texas Tech Athletics offices in December 2012. It was a Wednesday evening, specifically, when that eagerness transformed to action.
No. 16 Texas Tech, behind early second-half goals from Hannah Devine and Janine Beckie, knocked off No. 11 Notre Dame, 2-1, Friday evening in front of a crowd of 2,603 at Alumni Stadium.
