Texas Tech Releases 2023 Football Schedule

(from Texas Tech Athletics)

Texas Tech kicks off Big 12 play Sept. 23 at West Virginia before hosting Houston, K-State, TCU and UCF during its league slate.

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech and the Big 12 Conference formally announced the 2023 football schedule Tuesday, which features six home games inside Jones AT&T Stadium with visits by the likes of Houston, Kansas State, TCU and UCF during league play.

Houston and UCF are two of three new members to the Big 12 Conference that appear on the 2023 schedule as the Cougars will serve as Texas Tech’s Big 12 home opener Sept. 30, while the Knights will round out the home slate Nov. 18. Texas Tech previously topped Houston, 33-30, in double overtime this past season when the two former Southwest Conference foes completed a four-game non-conference series against each other.

In addition to both Houston and UCF, the Red Raiders will also make their first-ever visit to the state of Utah for a football contest Oct. 21 when Texas Tech faces BYU. The Red Raiders edged BYU, 21-20, in the only other meeting between the two schools, which occurred during the early stages of Texas Tech’s football program in 1940.

Big 12 play will commence Sept. 23 when the Red Raiders travel to West Virginia, one of five road games on the conference docket. Texas Tech will also make trips to Baylor (Oct. 7), BYU (Oct. 21), Kansas (Nov. 11) and Texas (Nov. 24), the final one of which will take place on the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving.

Texas is one of two non-Saturday dates for the Red Raiders, who will host TCU on Nov. 2 following its lone open weekend of the season. It will be the first Thursday night home contest for the Red Raiders since 2016 when Texas Tech routed Kansas. Texas Tech is a perfect 2-0 in Thursday night games as Big 12 members against TCU following a home win over the Horned Frogs in 2013 and then again in 2018 in Fort Worth.

Texas Tech’s only other conference matchup will take place on Oct. 14 when reigning Big 12 champion Kansas State returns to Lubbock. The Red Raiders will not face Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State or fellow new conference member Cincinnati as part of the league’s new 14-team format for 2023.

The conference slate follows Texas Tech’s three non-conference games beginning at Wyoming on Sept. 2 and following with home dates against Oregon on Sept. 9 and Tarleton State on Sept. 16. The Ducks are one of three teams set to visit Jones AT&T Stadium this coming season who finished in the top 15 of the final Associated Press poll, joining both Kansas State and TCU.

Season tickets for all six games inside Jones AT&T Stadium sell for as low as $185 a seat. The Texas Tech Ticket Office is currently offering eight-month payment plans through today before moving to a seven-month option beginning Wednesday. Current season ticket holders have until Feb. 28 to renew their seats and parking for the 2023 season.
