A look at the history between Texas Tech and Baylor


Saturday nights game between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and Baylor Bears will mark the 72nd all time meeting between the two schools in football, with the Red Raiders holding a 36-34-1 all time record but coming in on a bit of a slide in the series. For the first 15 years that the Big 12 existed, the Red Raiders enjoyed a spectacular 15-0 record against the Bears, shutting them out twice and holding them to two touchdowns or fewer another 6 times. In the past two years though, Baylor has exacted a little revenge, scoring 66 and 52 points on their way to victories over the Red Raiders.

  • These two schools first met on the football field in 1929, with the Baylor Bears pulling out a 34-0 victory over the Red Raiders.

The Red Raiders also won 5 straight match ups against the Bears from1969-1973 and 4 straight from 1975-1978. Baylors longest winning streak is 11 straight games from 1947-1960. They also won 4 straight twice from 1979-1982 and again from 1984-1987.
  • As an incoming freshman born in 1995, you would have watched the Red Raiders go 15-3 against Baylor until now. As a senior, you would have watched the Red Raiders go 17-4 against Baylor.
  • The largest victory for the Red Raiders in a 51 point victory in 2002. The Bears largest victory came in a 34-0 victory in 1926.
