Texas Tech and University of Houston Agree to Four-Game Football Series
Texas Tech and the University of Houston have agreed to a four-game football series.
Tech and Houston agreed to the series, which will begin in 2017 in Houston and will conclude in Lubbock in 2022.
This is the second series between the Red Raiders and the Cougars since the 1995 breakup of the Southwest Conference.
Prior to the end of the SWC, Tech and Houston competed as conference opponents for 20 years.
“Having a presence in South Texas is important for our football program and gives our fans in that region additional opportunities to watch the Red Raiders play,” said Kirby Hocutt, Director of Athletics.
Tech and Houston last met on November 27th, 2010, in the final game of a two-game series at Jones AT&T Stadium. The Red Raiders defeated the Cougars 35 to 20.
Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury was on the Houston staff for four seasons, and was named as the Offensive Coordinator of the Year by FootballScoop.com in his final season in 2011.
The series will begin in Houston on September 16th, 2017, and will return to Lubbock on September 15th, 2018. There will be a two-year break, and the Red Raiders will play in Houston on September 18th, 2021, with the series concluding in Lubbock on September 10th, 2022.
