Texas Tech’s 2014 football schedule was released this morning by the Big 12, featuring a respectable non-conference slate and possibly the best home schedule in the country.

2014 Texas Tech Football Schedule

Aug. 30 – Central Arkansas

Sept. 6 – at UTEP

Sept. 13 – Arkansas

Sept. 20 – OPEN

Sept. 25 – at *Oklahoma State

Nov. 1 – *Texas

Nov. 8 – OPEN

Nov. 15 – *Oklahoma

Nov. 22 – at *Iowa State

Nov. 29 – vs. *Baylor (Arlington, Texas)

Dec. 6 – OPEN

* = Big 12 Conference game

Tech kicks off Big 12 conference play at Oklahoma State on a Thursday night (September 25) as part of the conference’s TV deal. It’ll be much nicer watching our Thursday game take place elsewhere.

With a tremendous stroke of luck, the Red Raiders only have two true road games in the final eight weeks of the season – at TCU on October 25 and at Iowa State on November 22. Both winnable games.

As part of a solid non-conference schedule, Tech travels to El Paso to face UTEP for the first time since 2006 when the Red Raiders won a thriller in overtime.

After a lackluster menu this season, Texas Tech will have one of the best home schedules in the country next year: Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kansas and Central Arkansas all travel to Lubbock. Go make a deposit on some season tickets.

Next year’s home contest against Texas on November 1 will be the sixth anniversary of the 2008 game.
