Texas Tech Red Raiders Football Tickets
Located in the heart of Lubbock, the Texas Tech Red Raiders have been a formidable football force for a long time. While they may lack a long list of trophies like some of their close rivals, their history carries names such as the MVP of the last NFL season, Patrick Mahomes, and the winner of multiple Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, Danny Amendola. Fans also won't soon forget the timeless and legendary win over the Texas Longhorns in 2008 when the Red Raiders shocked the nation and won by scoring a long-throw touchdown in the last second. The team's home games take place at the state-of-the-art Jones AT&T Stadium that often gets covered in tortillas as a byproduct of a long-lasting student tradition. The school has had no shortage of outstanding coaches given that Kliff Kingsbury, a former Superbowl winner, Texas Tech alum and a current NFL coach, led the program for five years.

Who is Texas Tech's football coach?
After the departure of Kliff Kingsbury at the end of the season in 2018, Texas Tech hired Matt Wells to lead the football program. He signed a six-year contract with the Red Raiders after accumulating a career-long record of 44 wins and 34 losses. Wells' major accomplishments come from his days at Utah State University where he held positions such as the quarterback and offensive coach for a few years. He finally reached the head coach position in 2013 and spent the subsequent five years leading the Utah State Aggies. His best season record took place just last year as his team finished with 10 wins and only two losses. In addition, his scoring offense was the third-best in the entire nation.

How is the tailgating scene at Texas Tech?
If there is one thing that the Red Raiders are known for, besides throwing tortillas at the beginning of home football games, it is the tailgating that happens before, during and after all sporting events. Students, fans and parents gather all over the university's enormous campus to watch the team play while the constant revving of pickup trucks, muscle cars and lifted Jeeps becomes the elevator music for the scenery characterized by endless red shirts.
