Texas Tech football fans who have been clamoring for the team to put the red back into the Red Raider are certain to be pleased today. During his weekly radio show “Red Raider Football With Kliff Kingsbury” broadcast locally on KTTU FM, Texas Tech’s head coach said that the red uniform tops that the team wore against TCU are going to remain in the regular uniform rotation moving forward.

Just a week after wearing 1990s style throwback uniforms against Arkansas, Texas Tech brought the trademark red jerseys back for the first time in the Kliff Kingsbury era.  In addition to the scarlet jersey’s, the Texas Tech helmets featured a red face mask and a red Double-T logo shadowed in silver.

In a dramatic twist, the team went through pre-game warmups in the usual all-black uniforms.  However, when the team took the field it was sporting the long lost red jerseys that have always been a fan favorite.

The overwhelmingly positive fan response to the red look is a stark contrast to the reception of other recent alternative uniforms donned by the Texas Tech football team.  Hoards of fans have been complaining that the Red Raiders were no longer red or that the scarlet had been taken out of the official school colors of scarlet and black.

The timing of the reintroduction of the red uniforms was calculated according to Kliff Kingsbury who said that the program had been saving them for a special occasion. Now that fans can rest assured that the red is here to stay, let’s revisit some of the recent alternative uniforms worn by the Texas Tech football team.
