RED RAIDERS KICK OFF 2014 AT HOME AGAINST UCA
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. Saturday's game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports as part of Texas Tech's third-tier agreement with the cable network. Fans will be able to tune to the radio broadcast from the Texas Tech Sports Network on one of 38 affiliates across the region. Brian Jensen returns to the broadcast booth as the play-by-play announcer for his 15th season and is joined by veteran John Harris who will be in his 32nd year of providing analysis. Chris Level rounds out the crew as the sideline reporter and is in his fifth season.

The Red Raiders enter their second season under head coach Kliff Kingsbury and will look to build upon an 8-5 record from 2013. Texas Tech went just 4-5 in Big 12 play last year but ended the season on a high note with a 37-23 win over No. 16 Arizona State in the National University Holiday Bowl. Texas Tech jumped out to a 7-0 start in 2013 which propelled the Red Raiders all the way up to No. 9 in the USA Today Coaches Poll on Oct. 27. The Red Raiders enter the 2014 season unranked for the sixth consecutive year.
