Red Raiders Break Back Into The Top 25|
Texas Tech is back in the Top 25 at No. 18/20
October 14, 2012
Texas Tech's 49-14 thumping of No. 5/4 West Virginia has catapulted the Red Raiders back into the Top 25.
The Red Raiders make their season debut in the Associated Press Top 25 as the Red Raiders stand at No. 18 while Tech rejoins the USA Today/Coaches poll after a one week hiatus at No. 20. Texas Tech is ranked in both polls for the first time since 2011 when the Red Raiders upset No. 1 Oklahoma in Norman.
Texas Tech's AP and coaches poll rankings are the highest for the program since finishing the year 12th in both polls in 2008.
Texas Tech will take on No. 21 TCU (coaches poll) on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. on ABC with a reverse national mirror on ESPN2. The game is sold out.
