Texas Tech students are gearing up for this weekend's big game against Texas A&M with a pep rally. The fun began at 6 p.m. Thursday. The band played, spirit squads cheered and Tech fans chanted to get the campus excited about the big game on Saturday.
The pep rally was held outside the Memorial Circle, but over at Jones AT&T Stadium, there are some fans who don't want to lose their spot in line. So-called Raiderville has grown since Tuesday. There are now over 100 students camping out to be first in line for Saturday's game.
Wednesday night Coach Mike Leach bought them 20 pizzas and they got to play some football down on the very same field that the Red Raiders will be playing on Saturday.
They have TV's and computers but these kids say they're still roughing it. Kevin Pierso, the so called mayor of Raiderville says, "A little hot, a little stuffy once in awhile. We're staying up on our showers so nobody stinks too bad."
At the pep rally, for every student that attended the Saddle Tramps provided fans with two free T-shirts.
