Lubbock Ready for Big Game Weekend

Tech fans packed up and are now living outside the Jones AT&T Stadium making sure they get first dibs at the best student seats in the house when Texas A&M comes to town.

Some of them have been here since Sunday evening, so the odds of them getting into the game are pretty good. But the odds of getting in without a ticket aren't so good, unless you're willing to pay some big bucks.

Die-hard Tech fans are roughing it in order to snatch front row seats for this weekend's big game against the Aggies. Some of these students have made this place home since Sunday, working in shifts to guard their special spots in line and their necessities. 

These guys will be cheering the Red Raiders in the student section come Saturday and right now, the only seats still available are general admission bleacher seats at $95 apiece. Or you can try E-bay. There are nearly 80 different listings for the Tech-A&M game alone, but those tickets are going for as much as $600.

And what better way to show up, then with the perfect accessory. Special T-shirts were printed especially for Saturday's game and are now on sale at Red Raider Outfitters, but they are going quick.

Just off Broadway this weekend, you're sure to see quite a sight. Red Raider Outfitter tells us they've ordered a 50 foot tall crab in honor of Tech receiver Michael Crabtree.

Again, kick-off against Texas A&M is this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium.
