Tech announces kickoff times,
TV for five games

Texas Tech and the Big 12 Conference announced on Tuesday the times and networks for five games on the 2013 schedule, including the Thanksgiving Day tilt with Texas.

The Red Raiders and Longhorns will clash at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 28 at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The game will be broadcast on the newly created Fox Sports 1, a network designed to compete with ESPN.

Also announced are the times and networks for Tech’s three non-conference games. The Red Raiders open the 2013 season on Friday, Aug. 30 at SMU. That game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff on ESPN.

Tech opens its home schedule the following week on Sept. 7 with a 6 p.m. kickoff against Stephen F. Austin on Fox Sports Net. The Red Raiders open Big 12 play at home against TCU on Sept. 12, a Thursday night, with a 6:30 p.m. kick on ESPN, then wind up their non-conference schedule on Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. at home against Texas State.

The times and networks for the remaining seven games will be determined weekly on a 12-day window.

We are less than. 100 days until college football season, can't wait.....


Fox Sports 1 (Texas game)

I hope that Fox Sports 1 is getting signed on with all the major providers (Dish, Direct TV, Time Warner, Comcast, etc). Until they do, they can't/won't compete w/ ESPN, and most of us won't get the Thanksgiving Day game. As a Houston Astros fan in San Antonio, I and many others, including over 50% of Houston, have not been able to watch games all year because they decided to switch from Fox Sports Southwest to Comcast, and have not been able to get any agreements set up. I don't blame the providers. If they pick up every new channel that comes along, they will have to charge $400/mo for the service. Eventually, they're to have to come up with a "menu" system where they have all channels available, and you pick just the ones that you are going to watch. Food Network..no, Catholic TV...no, etc. Go Red Raiders and I hope I get to watch all of the games!
