Texas Tech gets Thanksgiving date with Texas

Texas Tech has announced its 2013 football schedule, and the Red Raiders will be visiting the Texas Longhorns on Thanksgiving Day as well as opening the season in Dallas against SMU.

“We are very pleased with the 2013 schedule,” Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said in a statement. “We will get two off weeks during the season and I think they are at times that could really help us. Overall, it’s a very challenging schedule but that is what you get in the Big 12 Conference.”
