Texas Tech Accepts Konica Minolta Gator Bowl Invitation
Red Raiders will face the No. 20/21 Virginia Cavaliers in Jacksonville on New Year’s Day.
Texas Tech makes its fourth appearance at the Gator Bowl, dating back to the 1954 matchup with Auburn. The Red Raiders, coming off of a 10-1 regular season, capped the year with a 35-13 win over the Tigers on New Year’s Day. Texas Tech is 2-1 all-time in the Gator Bowl with the program’s second win coming against Tennessee, 28-19, in 1973.
Georgia Tech handed Texas Tech its only loss in Jacksonville, 31-21, in 1965. Tech’s first Gator Bowl appearance also saw the dawning of one of the more storied traditions in college football – the first appearance of the Masked Rider. [more]
