57,367 turn out for Texas Tech Homecoming


Texas Tech University's school spirit was amplified at Saturday's game against Big 12 Conference rival, Iowa State University.

The win not only makes Texas Tech bowl-eligible and keeps them undefeated, but it is also a win for this year's homecoming game.

"I mean, its Tech football, come on," said one Red Raider fan.

The 11 a.m. kick-off time did not stop fans from coming out to support their team.

"We had to wake up and paint up at 8 o'clock," said a student with a giant double-T painted across his chest.

Total attendance for the day tallied at 57,367 people.

The game's half-time performance was the icing on the cake for the week's homecoming festivities. It began with the Goin' Band from Raiderland and ended with the crowning of the 2013-2014 Homecoming king and queen, Scott Stracener and Jill Berger.

Texas Tech University beat Iowa State 42-35.
