LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) - Fresh off the Red Raiders’ 56-10 rout of Eastern Washington Saturday afternoon, Texas Tech Athletics has announced a Labor Day special for tickets to the Sept. 16 showdown with Arizona State at Jones AT&T Stadium.
Tickets will be reduced to $25 per person in certain sections as part of the 24-hour sale that will be available only online at TexasTech.com Monday. Fans should use the promo code “LABORDAY” to take advantage of the Labor Day special.
Backed by an accurate debut from quarterback Nic Shimonek, the Red Raiders found the endzone on seven-consecutive offensive possessions en route to opening their 15th-straight season with a victory. That streak now ranks third nationally behind only Ohio State and Alabama.
Shimonek, making his first collegiate start, finished 26-of-30 for 384 yards and three touchdowns before leaving the game late in the third quarter with the lead in hand. He started the game a perfect 14-of-14 on pass attempts, falling just one completion shy of matching the Tech single-game record
Possibly even more impressive, though, was the play of a Red Raider defense that held Eastern Washington to just 301 yards of total offense. The Eagles, who returned 5,000-yard passer Gage Gubrud, had averaged 46.3 points per game in their last three meetings against FBS foes such as Washington (2014), Oregon (2015) and Washington State (2016).
The Red Raiders will have two full weeks to prepare for the Sun Devils, who opened their season with a 37-31 victory over New Mexico State on Thursday night. Arizona State will host San Diego State this Saturday before making its first trip ever to Jones AT&T Stadium the following weekend.
Ticket packages are still available for each of the remaining five home games this season. To purchase tickets or for questions, please contact the Tech Ticket Office at 806-742-TECH. The Tech Ticket Office will be closed Monday in observance of Labor Day.
