Texas Tech will make fashion statement, too
By David Ubben
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Oklahoma State has forged an identity with its 48 jersey combinations, but Texas Tech will have a special jersey of its own today.
A day after Veterans Day, Texas Tech will wear jerseys featuring camouflage to support the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides help to wounded servicemen.
Last year, rather than taking questions, Texas Tech quarterback Taylor Potts read a statement about what the week meant to him.
The Red Raiders have spent time this week with Sal Giunta, who received the Medal of Honor, the armed forces' highest decoration for valor, for rescuing several of his squad members in Afghanistan.
Giunta will be an honorary captain today, and it'll be interesting to hear what Tech players learned from him this week.
Texas Tech's jerseys will draw plenty of attention to the cause Wounded Warrior champions.
