The second season of the Kliff Kingsbury era at Texas Tech gets underway today as the Red Raiders open spring practice.

On the heels of an 8-5 season and an impressive win in the National University Holiday Bowl, the excitement continues to build for the Red Raider Football program. Here's what you need to know in regards to the spring season:

Texas Tech will hold 15 official workouts over the next 39 days. The team will practice five times before taking off the entire week of Spring Break (March 15-23).

Can I Attend Spring Practice?
All practices are closed to the public and the media with the exception of three dates. The Red Raiders will practice in Midland on March 29, inside Jones AT&T Stadium on April 4 and again inside the stadium for the annual Spring Game on April 12. Those three practices will be open to the public.

Permian Basin
For the second straight season, Texas Tech will pack up and head to the Permian Basin for a spring practice session. The Red Raiders will workout at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland. The practice is free and open to the public. Last year's tailgating was impressive and Texas Tech is reminding all fans to plan on tailgating again this year.

Friday Night Lights
Texas Tech will hold an open practice under the lights in Jones AT&T Stadium on Friday, April 4 at 8 p.m. All Red Raider fans are welcome to attend.

Spring Game
Texas Tech will hold its annual Spring Game at Jones AT&T Stadium on Saturday, April 12. The game will kick off at 11 a.m. and will be televised regionally on Fox Sports Southwest. There will be no admission fee for the game (a change from past years) and a postgame autograph session will be held on the field. Additional details on the Spring Game will be announced at a later date.

Season Tickets
If you have not purchased season tickets for the upcoming season, you still have the opportunity to take advantage of a six-month payment plan. With over 4,200 new season tickets sold and a strong renewal percentage, there is a possibility that the stadium could sell out through season ticket sales for the first time in school history.

Here's The Scoop
Texas Tech is returning 73 lettermen from last year's team that went 8-5 overall and defeated No. 16 Arizona State 37-23 in the National University Holiday Bowl. Additionally, Tech returns eight starters on the offensive side of the football and five starters on defense. The Red Raiders signed 25 student-athletes during the junior college signing period (December) and on National Signing Day in early February. Three of the junior college student-athletes have already arrived on campus and will go through spring practice (Devin Lauderdale {Wide Receiver}, Keland McElrath {Defensive Line} and Josh Keys {Safety}).
