Red Raiders will open Big 12 play in an 11 a.m. kickoff on Sept. 28 in Norman


LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech will play in its first early start of the 2019 season on Sept. 28 when the Red Raiders face No. 5 Oklahoma in an 11 a.m. kickoff inside Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.

FOX will broadcast the Big 12 opener between the Red Raiders (2-1) and Sooners (3-0), who will both be coming off an open week. Tech is 14-9 all-time in Big 12 openers after going on the road to rout then-No. 15 Oklahoma State, 41-17, in Stillwater a year ago.

This will be the first time in program history Tech has opened league play against the Sooners as the Red Raiders will be facing a ranked opponent in their first conference test for the fifth time in a six-year span.
