LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech has just taken the field in red jerseys and white pants, and there's little to note in pregame, but it has to be a special debut for true freshman quarterback Scotty Young.
Not everybody can suit up for their first college game ever and see fans everywhere wearing his jersey.
Of course, there's a reason for that. Young wears No. 15, the same number today's starting quarterback, Taylor Potts wore last season. Potts made a switch to No. 12 before this season and a red No. 12 jersey sounds like a tough find in Lubbock.
Coach Tommy Tuberville's requested red out looks like a success, as the vast majority of the crowd got the memo and followed the new head man's orders.
Tuberville led the team onto the field in a red polo shirt with his guns very clearly up.
Time to kick it off. After missing out on a gameday atmosphere yesterday, I'm ready. I'm sure Texas Tech's players, fans and coaches are, too.
