Game to showcase Doak Walker finalist, Big 12 rushing leader
The Texas Tech football team’s next stop is the Texas Bowl — not to face an old rival, but a marquee program the Red Raiders haven’t encountered in more than a half century.
The Red Raiders (7-5) are headed to Houston to play LSU (8-3) on Dec. 29 in a pairing announced Sunday.
“It’s a great team,” Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “I think it’ll be a great atmosphere. With their fan base and our fan base in this state and Houston, it’ll be rockin’. That makes for a great deal for both universities and the bowl itself.”
