Texas Tech and Oregon have agreed on a two-game, home-and-home football series that will bring the Ducks to Lubbock in 2023 and then send the Red Raiders to Eugene the following season.

Texas Tech will host Oregon, a regular contender for the Pac-12 Conference title, on Sept. 9, 2023, before traveling to Eugene to complete the series on Sept. 7, 2024.

The Red Raiders have previously faced Oregon twice in school history as the two teams played a home-and-home series during the 1991 and 1992 seasons. The Ducks won both meetings with a 28-13 victory during the 1991 contest in Lubbock and then a 16-13 win the following year in Eugene.

The Oregon series is the third scheduled by Texas Tech against a Pac-12 opponent in recent years as the Red Raiders will open a home-and-home slate against Arizona State this season before facing Arizona during the 2019 and 2020 campaigns.

The start of the Arizona State series begins a nine-year stretch where Texas Tech will play seven non-conference games against a member of a power-five conference. The Red Raiders are also slated to begin a two-game series against N.C. State in 2022.

In addition, Texas Tech has also scheduled non-conference games against the likes of Eastern Washington (2017), Houston (2017-18, 2021-22), Montana State (2019), UTEP (2019-20), Wyoming (2020, 2023) and Colorado State (2025-26).

The Red Raiders open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 when Texas Tech hosts Stephen F. Austin inside Jones AT&T Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. on FOX Sports Net.
