LUBBOCK, Texas - The No. 19 Texas Tech soccer team will look to extend its five-match winning streak Sunday when the Red Raiders face UC Santa Barbara at the Jack in the Box Classic.
The Red Raiders (8-1-0) opened play in Albuquerque with a dominant 3-0 shutout of UC Davis Friday night -their third shutout in as many matches. Texas Tech was powered by three sophomores who found the back of the net while senior goalkeeper Victoria Esson posted her 20th career shutout.
Texas Tech has allowed just one goal in the previous five matches while the Red Raiders enter Sunday's match with a perfect 4-0 record in games played away from home this season.
Texas Tech is off to its best start in school history with eight wins in nine matches. Sunday will mark the final non-conference tune-up before the Red Raiders open Big 12 play next weekend in Ames, Iowa.
