Texas Tech Fans Are Setting Up Tents for Texas Game

247Sports Writer Believes Texas Tech Will 'Make a Splash' in March Madness

Texas Tech Red Raiders fans may have the most passionate fan base in the Big 12 Conference.

With Texas Tech and Texas set to face each other for the final time as members of the Big 12 Conference on Saturday, Red Raiders fans are already camped out in tents three days ahead of the matchup.

 

Grant McCasland’s Red Raiders have been an incredible story to follow in 2023-24, with the first-year head coach leading his team to an 8-5 conference record and an overall record of 19-7.

While the Texas Longhorns may be on the minds of fans in Lubbock, the Red Raiders have a matchup on the road in Orlando to worry about first. Texas Tech heads to the Addition Financial Arena to take on Johnny Dawkins and the UCF Knights, who have quietly become a tough out in the league.

Texas Tech took home the first matchup between in-state rivals, with the Red Raiders stealing a road win in Austin 78-67. Texas Tech will now have a shot to close out the series when the team plays host to Rodney Terry and the Longhorns in one of the last conference games of the 2023-24 season.
