Tech fans rush to buy gear

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech fans are still talking about that big win against Oklahoma. Now they're rushing to stores to show off their pride.

Red Raider Outfitter simply can't keep up. Before the big win the store put a stop to truckloads of merchandise coming in. They simply weren't selling anything. Now that the fan base is strong again, they are frantically turning everything back on.  

"We think it's going to be a sell out and the crowd base has been crazy," said Red Raider Outfitter owner Stephen Spieglberg.

The fans are also louder than ever. Sunday morning when the Red Raiders returned from Norman, hundreds lined up to congratulate their efforts.

"The biggest issue is it brings the fan base together a little bit. I know it's been split for the past two years or so. Every coach has that moment where they bring them together, and that's Tommy Tuberville's tonight," said one fan.

Shortly after, online Tech sales skyrocketed for Red Raider Outfitter. The owner says even the Dallas store is seeing hundreds of customers buying gear.

"When that store is busy that means this store is busy. They are a barometer of how our fans feel outside of Lubbock There is a huge Red Raider pride going on around the state of Texas," said Spieglberg.

Monday alone, 500 people on Facebook requested the store print a score T-shirt so fans can show off the Tech victory.

The T-shirts are already online. Tuesday they will be available at Red Raider Outfitter.
