Seven months have sailed by since Texas Tech players and coaches trotted out of San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium, all smiles after hanging a 37-23 upset on Pac-12 South Division champion Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl.

Kliff Kingsbury’s second season as Tech head coach is at hand with the Red Raiders opening at home four weeks from today against Central Arkansas.

The Red Raiders host their media day today at Jones AT&T Stadium, then dive into a busy schedule of preseason workouts at 6:15 p.m. Monday.

There’s only one off day between now and the start of game-week preparations.

To get you ready, the A-J has a snapshot of what’s coming up in camp on Page C4. There you’ll find the Red Raiders’ projected lineup, camp objectives, players to watch, young players who could make an impact and assorted other notes.

The win in San Diego capped an 8-5 season and put the Red Raiders in a better frame of mind after they dropped five in a row to end the 2013 regular season.

Late-season losing has been an issue each of the last three years, but the Red Raiders have a lot to concern themselves before then.

Such as answering plenty of questions between now and the end of August.
