The Crabtree catch. Spike Dykes. Flying tortillas. Donny Anderson. Zach Thomas. The South Plains. Wes Welker. The Masked Rider. Mike Leach. The Matador song. Kliff Kingsbury. Pat Mahomes. This is Texas Tech football.
Texas Tech fielded its first intercollegiate team in 1925 with Ewing Y. Freeland at the helm, and the original mascot was the Matadors. They were the Red Raiders by 1937, and played in their first bowl game, the Sun Bowl, that same year. Texas Tech joined the Southwest Conference in 1956 and officially began play in 1960. The Red Raiders were part of the Texas contingent that joined the Big 12 in 1996 and quickly made a name for itself with the innovative "Air Raid" offense.
