Red Raider football heads to Permian Basin for spring scrimmage

Provided by Texas Tech Athletics

For the second consecutive year, the Texas Tech Football team will pack up and head to the Permian Basin for a spring scrimmage at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland.

Last year's event drew over 10,000 fans prompting the athletics department and Permian Basin event organizers to bring Red Raider Football back this spring.

Tailgating set the tone for the day at last year's scrimmage and this year Texas Tech and Carpet Tech will award prizes for the best tailgates. The pre-game area will also feature the Kids Zone complete with inflatables and promotional item giveaways.

There will also be appearances by the Texas Tech Cheerleaders, Raider Red and the Masked Rider.

The entire event is free and plenty of parking will be available around the stadium. Ticket sales representatives will be on hand to assist fans with the purchase of season football tickets for 2014.

The scrimmage will kickoff at 1 p.m.
