What Texas Tech thinks about Texas

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Both teams come into the conference opener 2-0. Remember what happened in 2008. This is a new look Red Raider team who is coming off a 52-17 win on the road at New Mexico.

Texas wasn't over-impressive beating Wyoming. Now the rivals collide at the Jones Saturday at seven p.m. for the nation to see.

"Texas is always there," said Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville. "They're always playing for a national championship, conference championships, so it makes it a little more important for us to play this game."

"This is a really big game. Everybody's excited, because this is Texas," said Texas Tech defensive back Will Ford. "Everybody loves the Texas Tech - Texas game; it's always a big game, and we plan on going out there and having fun."

Taylor Potts "Going into conference you want to win all your conference games, so there's kind of no doubt," said Texas Tech Quarterback Taylor Potts. "We want to get to that championship game. You definitely want to beat Texas, because they're usually up there for the conference title and if you can beat them early and really catapult your season."

Now Saturday September 18th, is an extra special day for Coach Tommy Tuberville. Yes it's his first big 12 game but September 18th is also his birthday as he turns 56 years young, and he got an early celebratory cake today.

Congrats to Red Raider Eric Stephens who was named the Big 12 conference's special team's player of the week.

Stephens tallied 175 yards on kickoff returns including this 93 yarder to move to third on the all time Red Raider kickoff return yards list.
