Tech officials prepare for rain on game day

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As Texas Tech prepares to take on Texas A&M for the last time Saturday, Tech officials want to make sure fans are prepared for the rain.

The game is expected to go on rain or shine, but Tech says the mix of big crowds and rain means you should make sure to get to the stadium early.

And if it is raining remember NOT to bring an umbrella.

"Umbrellas are not allowed in the stadium. Every year when we have a chance of rain we always get those people that will show up with their umbrellas and we have to turn them away at the gate," Tech Athletic Communications Director Blayne Beal said.

Tech encourages fans to bring black ponchos because it's a black out game.

Tech officials say they are monitoring the weather and do not expect game delays unless there is lightning.

You can keep up with the latest weather on our KCBD Weather page or with one of our mobile apps and John will have his game forecast for you tonight at 10.
