The Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Texas Tech Red Raiders are the proud representatives of the Texas Tech University (TTU) in NCAA football. They are members of the Big 12 Conference of the NCAA Division-I FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision). The Texas Tech University initiated its football program back in 1925 and boasts of an impressive overall winning record.
Upon inception, the team was known as the “Matadors” as a reference to the abundant Spanish Renaissance architecture on the TTU campus. In 1937, the name was changed to the “Red Raiders” which was originally a nickname used by a sportswriter.
This change of name brought an immediate change in fortunes as the Red Raiders won their first conference title that same year. As a result, they were invited to play in the Sun Bowl, one of the oldest college football bowl games in the country.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders have significant rivalries with the Texas A&M Aggies (Texas A&M University), the Baylor Bears (Baylor University), the Oklahoma State Cowboys (Oklahoma State University) and the TCU Horned Frogs (Texas Christian University). The side from Lubbock has played more games against the Baylor Bears and the Texas A&M Aggies than any other college football team.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders have 11 Conference championships and 1 Division title to their name. They are currently fourth in terms of bowl game appearances for Big 12 Conference teams. Many wonderful players have donned the Red Raiders colors over the years including Dave Parks, Donny Anderson and Zach Thomas among others.
