More 11 A.M. Kickoffs for Texas Tech This Season
If you're sick of seeing Texas Tech play at 11 a.m., then you aren't going to like what you're about to read.
For the fourth time in the last five weeks, the Texas Tech Red Raiders will be kicking off at 11 a.m. when they host the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday, Nov. 4. That game will be aired nationally on Fox Sports 1, with Kevin Fitzgerald doing the play-by-play alongside Evan Moore.
The Red Raiders fell to Oklahoma 49-27 last week, making it three consecutive losses and bringing their record to 4-4 on the season. While Texas Tech may have not been horrible in morning kickoffs (with a 2-2 record), it's still a morning game. Playing at 11 a.m. is already hard enough, but after losing three straight games, Kliff Kingsbury and the Red Raiders need to bounce back in a big way to appease the fanbase.
Yesterday, Texas Tech announced yet another 11 a.m. kickoff for next week when Texas Tech takes on Baylor at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The game will be aired regionally by Fox Sports Net and will mark the seventh straight year that Texas Tech and Baylor have faced off at Jerry's World, with Baylor besting TTU in 6 of the 7 years playing there.
