Lubbock abuzz for the Longhorns

By David Ubben

LUBBOCK, Texas -- I think somebody told Texas Tech fans that Texas was coming to town today. I was here two weeks ago for SMU, and the atmosphere couldn't be any different. The student section is already packed, as is the general admission seating in the north end zone.

Outside Jones AT&T Stadium was a sea of people for the Raider Walk, Tommy Tuberville's new tradition for fans to line up and form a tunnel for his players on their way into the locker room.

Texas players are warming up on the field, and we're about 90 minutes from the opening kick. We already had a great game to kick off conference play earlier today between Iowa State and Kansas State.

Tonight should be a second. I'm ready to get this thing started.
