Homecoming Crowd Enjoys Another Tech Win

With the Texas Tech game moving to an earlier time, many fans were having to start tailgating as early as 7 a.m. And with this week being homecoming very few people were complaining about the changes.

The scene at Jones Stadium when the clock ran out was one of pride and celebration of having an undefeated season. But the celebration for some fans, like Keith McKinize, started hours before Tech took the field.

"The most exciting season in years man. Undefeated right now and looking good and continuing to look good," stated McKinize.

With Tech having the making of a record breaking season, homecoming was a time for Red Raider supporters to come together.

With the game starting at 11 a.m. the only thing that changed for some tailgaters was the menu.

"Actually we had to call an audible when they changed the time to 11 o'clock. We had more of a bbq style menu, so we had to regroup and pull back and come up with the breakfast items. And so we had to get up a little bit earlier and prepare a little bit more in advance and make it work," said Michael Riojas, an avid Tech supporter.

With tailgating being the tradition that it is, Riojas had no problems getting up before 7 o'clock to start the festivities.

Now that Tech has gone 6-0 in the season many fans are looking ahead for what the future holds. Tech defeated Kansas State 59-20 to a homecoming crownd at Jones SBC Stadium. Saturday marked Tech's third straight win in Big XII play. Now fans look forward to next week as undefeated Texas Tech takes on undefeated Texas.

"We're going to look forward to Texas and then we are going to destroy some hopes and dreams next week," said McKinize.

Tech will play in Austin next week against the number two team in the nation.
