Red Raiders' last win against Cowboys was in 2008
Late on the night of Nov. 8, 2008, probably everyone inside Jones Stadium and those watching on TV were too zeroed in on short-term ramifications to think very far into the future.
Why would they, given the emotions of the evening?
After No. 2 Texas Tech’s 56-20 romp against No. 8 Oklahoma State, the Red Raiders and their giddy fans were thinking ahead to the next game against Oklahoma and, just maybe, a spot in the national championship game. Tech stood at a program pinnacle, the Red Raiders sporting a 10-0 record and as high a ranking as they’ve ever achieved.
