Red Raider fans "Gearing Up" for the big game

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Saturday, Texas Tech will be taking on the University of North Dakota. Friday night, Red Raider fans were gearing up with spirit for the first football game of the season.

Raider power is radiating throughout town, and fans like Texas Tech senior Laura Toler are rushing out to get the latest must-haves in Raider gear.

"We are all so excited we have a ton of friends coming in so we came here to buy some new Tech stuff, we're all getting really excited about the game!" says Toler.

Business has been booming for Tech merchandise stores thanks to last season's success. Samantha Nicks, Red Raider Outfitters manager says, "Tomorrow will be crazy. First home game coming off a year like last year, it's going to be crazy, insane, probably won't be able to move in here."

Now that Michael Crabtree is gone, the question NewsChannel 11 asked is what are the hot items flying off the shelves as fans flock to stores for their Tech gear?

"Pirates," "Pirates," "Pirates" seems to be the winner of what's "hot," along with Wreck 'Em shirts and game day dresses.

"Couple game day shirts, pirates and dresses definitely sell out," says Carrie Patton, manager of The Spirit Shop.

Fans can also find Tech ponchos if it happens to rain on Saturday. Remember, umbrellas are not allowed into the stadium.

If you have yet to buy your tickets for the game, no worries, there are still roughly 7,000 tickets still available.
