No. 22 Texas is preparing to face Texas Tech in Lubbock for their first road game of the season in Week 4.
The Red Raiders will certainly provide a rowdy environment for the Longhorns, as this could potentially be the last meeting between the two programs before Texas joins the SEC.
Each team enters the matchup with a 2-1 record. Texas fell to No. 1 Alabama by one point in Week 2, while Texas Tech suffered a loss to No. 16 NC State last week.
Texas Tech has not beaten Texas at home since 2008, the infamous Michael Crabtree game where the No. 1 ranked Longhorns lost 39-33. Here’s a look at five interesting facts ahead of the upcoming matchup between the two programs.
