LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As Texas Tech prepares to kick-off against Louisiana Tech Saturday evening at 6 p.m. at the Jones AT&T stadium, the Texas Tech Alumni Band will sound off during halftime, while featuring a former twirler.

Nancy Munnerlyn graduated from the university in the late 80's and says looking back, some of her most cherished memories are being on the football field cheering on the Red Raiders.

Saturday will be Munnerlyn's second time as part of the alumni band - and she says she'll be dedicating tomorrow's performance to her late parents.

"I'm truly honored to be here and to be part of alumni band day as a former feature twirler and I'm so excited to be on the field with the very best band in the entire world, the Goin’ Band from Raiderland," she says.

Munnerlyn tells us she's excited to be on the field performing with the current twirlers to perform with such great talent.
