LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech is primed for its lone preseason exhibition match Saturday as the Red Raiders face Utah Saturday at the University of Denver. The match is scheduled for 7 p.m. (CT) and is part of a double header at Denver Soccer Stadium as the Pioneers will host Wyoming at 4 p.m.

"We appreciate the University of Denver for hosting us and we are very excited to face Utah," sixth-year head coach Tom Stone said. "They are a quality soccer team that will really give us an idea of where we are at."

Texas Tech will open its regular season Friday Aug. 17 against Idaho at the John Walker Soccer Complex.

Texas Tech enters the 2012 season after finishing 10-8-2 overall and fourth in the Big 12 last year. The fourth-place finish tied for the best conference finish in school history.

The Red Raiders return 19 letterwinners including 2012 Preseason All-Big 12 selections Jaelene Hinkle and Tiffini Smith from the 2011 squad.
