Spirited Fans Invade LIA

With Tech's amazing win on Saturday, dozens of Red Raider fans were out at the airport ready to greet the players as they arrived home. Cheerleaders of all ages filled the lobby, dozens of them proudly waving their Texas Tech flags. Even though the game was not televised locally, there was plenty of Red Raider spirit.

"It was really exciting. We were rooting for the Raiders the entire time, we just wouldn't give up," says one fan. 

"I've got some Aaggie friends I'm ready to rub their face in it. I had a son that went to the game and he said that was the most exciting game he's ever been to," says Dan Parsons, a proud ex-Red Raider. 

Texas Tech plays again next weekend against a ranked Iowa State team.
