Tech Student Gambling on the Rise

Student gambling in Lubbock is more prevalent than ever. That is according to a story in Saturday's Dallas Morning News. Seven years ago a Sports Illustrated story singled out Texas Tech as a gambling hotspot and that prompted a crackdown.

Tech administrators acknowledge that illegal sports betting by students is taking place, but they say it is not any worse than on other college campuses. College campus gambling exploded as a problem nationwide in the 1990s. Bookies and gambling experts say some college students have run up gambling losses in the tens of thousands of dollars.
