LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech will close its home schedule with an 11 a.m. kickoff against in-state rival Texas on Nov. 5, the Big 12 Conference announced Monday afternoon. Television coverage will be provided nationally on FOX Sports 1.

The Texas game will be the seventh time this season where the Red Raiders have appeared on a FOX network, which includes each of the previous five home games inside Jones AT&T Stadium.

Texas Tech will honor its senior class prior to its 65 all-time meeting against the Longhorns. The Red Raiders claimed their first victory over Texas in Austin since 1997 a year ago, defeating the Longhorns, 48-45, thanks in part to 173 rushing yards from DeAndre Washington and 372 yards through the air from Patrick Mahomes II.

Limited tickets are still remaining for the Texas game. Tickets can be purchased online or by contacting the Texas Tech Ticket Office at 806-742-TECH.

Prior to facing the Longhorns, Tech will first have to travel to Fort Worth to take on TCU this Saturday. Kickoff for that game is slated for 2:30 p.m. on ESPN2 as well as the Texas Tech Sports Network.
