Raiderville citizens survive Thursday's storms

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Thursday night's weather made for an interesting camping experience for the citizens of Raiderville.

While the majority of fans opted out of sleeping outside Thursday night during the storms, there were some brave souls who decided to stick it out. They say that it was around 11 p.m. that the weather started to get really bad, and it lasted until 4 a.m. "It was horrifying, I hated it. I was just shivering and it was cold, tents were blowing over, it was a bad deal," said Alan Thompson, a Raiderville camper.

"Rain started coming down and it was picking up and ripping tents off the ground and it was horrible," said Travis Rhodes. "As soon as the rain started to calm down we stepped out and starting grilling and made some pork chops and stuff," said Thompson.

Kick-off is at 7 p.m. and Coach Tommy Tuberville and the team are urging all fans to wear red to all of the games this year. The game is sold out and all parking lots on campus are sold out and are reserved or designated for specific campus functions.

Free parking in non-tailgate areas will be available in the lots just west of University Medical Center and Citibus will provide a shuttle service for $5 a person before the game.

The team will arrive on campus at 4:45 p.m. for the newest Tech tradition, the Raider Walk. The team will walk down the Drive of Champions in front of Raider alley to the football training facility. Fans are asked to line the streets beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday.
