Kingsbury Invites Students to “Get Weird” This Saturday


A day removed from his first loss as head coach of the Red Raiders, Kliff Kingsbury begins preparation for Saturday’s Top 25 matchup with Oklahoma State by inviting students to wear Halloween costumes to the game and “get weird.”

Just 10 minutes later, Texas Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt implored students to start camping out in “Raiderville” tomorrow afternoon.

From the official Raiderville Twitter account:

Dating back to 2005, Raiderville was started to provide die-hard TTU students the opportunity to camp-out for the best seats at the Jones for the biggest games.

Both Tech and Oklahoma State are very much alive in the Big 12 title race, and Saturday’s game is set for a 6:00 p.m. kick inside Jones AT&T Stadium.

While many schools around the country are struggling to keep students interested in football this season, including power houses like Alabama, Texas Tech is on pace to break an accumulative attendance record. No doubt, a young, attractive and cool head coach has peaked interest; but winning football games helps too.

Come early and #LetsGetWeird this Saturday as we watch our boy #WreckOSU!
