Excerpts from Tech Trivia...

The Masked Rider became a reality in 1936 and was initially called a Ghost Rider.

The legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant suffered the worst defeat of his career in 1954 when his Texas A&M Aggies lost to Texas Tech 41-9.

Texas Tech’s campus is the nation’s second largest campus at 1,839 acres.

Author W.F. “Bill” Bennett worked as a Texas Tech soil scientist for 30 years. He loves Lubbock and says it was a perfect place for him and his family. Bennett has seen many members of his family graduate from Texas Tech, which is one of the many reasons he felt obligated to write “Tech Trivia.”

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of “Tech Trivia” will help to support Texas Tech.

To order, download and print the order form or call The Texas Tech Alumni Associaion at 806.742.3641.
