LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech and the University of Houston have agreed to a four-game football series starting in 2017 in Houston and concluding in Lubbock in 2022.

The series will mark the second between Texas Tech and Houston since the breakup of the Southwest Conference in 1995. Prior to 1995, the Red Raiders and Cougars faced off as conference opponents for 20 years beginning in 1975. The two teams first met in 1951.

"Having a presence in South Texas is important for our football program and gives our fans in that region additional opportunities to watch the Red Raiders play," Kirby Hocutt, Director of Athletics said.

Texas Tech and Houston last met on Nov. 27, 2010, in the final game of a two-game series at Jones AT&T Stadium. The Red Raiders defeated a Houston team led by Kevin Sumlin, 35-20.

Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury spent four seasons on the staff at Houston from 2008-2011 and was named the Offensive Coordinator of the Year by FootballScoop.com in his final season in 2011.

The series begins in Houston on Sept. 16, 2017 and returns to Lubbock the following year on Sept. 15, 2018. Following a two-year break, the Red Raiders will travel to Houston on Sept. 18, 2021 and the series will conclude in Lubbock on Sept. 10, 2022.
