LUBBOCK, Texas - Well folks. Football season is almost here.

That was evident today as the Red Raider Club hosted the annual kickoff luncheon at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. A record turnout of 1,800 fans packed the main event hall of the civic center to meet this year's team and hear from head coach Tommy Tuberville. The demand for tickets was so great that the Red Raider Club had to stop accepting reservations - and that is a great problem to have!!!

Today's luncheon was highlighted by a touching speech from the First Lady of Texas Tech University Dr. Jan Tillery. Jan and her husband Guy Bailey (Texas Tech President) are the team's biggest fans and she delivered a very inspiring speech in her husband's absence.

As soon as the luncheon was over, the Red Raiders went back to work as the team held a 3:30 p.m. practice inside Jones AT&T Stadium. The squad worked for just over two hours in warm temperatures but it was a spirited practice that Coach Tuberville felt good about when it was over.

Some great news about Texas Tech University is on the way and will come out this weekend. Make sure you check on Saturday!

As of Monday, we were 3,451 season tickets over the previous record set back in 2008. Thanks so much to our great fans! If you don't have your season tickets, it's not too late! Please log on to or call the ticket office today at 806-742-TECH!
