Tech Masked Rider's Horse Gets New Name

Before kick-off on Saturday, Texas Tech announced the name of the Masked Rider's new horse. The three year-old Black Gelding will have it's name changed from a Famous Boon to Midnight Matador.

A university committee chose the name from a list of 500 entries in a naming contest. The contest winner, Mike Meixner of San Antonio was presented with a statue of the horse for picking the prize winning name. Midnight Matador replaces Black Phantom Raider who was fatally injured in a traffic accident in August 2001.
