LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech will close spring practices Saturday when the Red Raiders host the annual Spring Game inside Jones AT&T Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. and admission is free for fans to enjoy the game as well as a slew of pregame festivities.

SPRING GAME FORMAT

Texas Tech will play two full quarters as part of its Spring Game on Saturday. Following a short 10-minute halftime period, the Red Raiders will return to a series of drills highlighting both the big guys in the trenches as well as the quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs. The list of drills will include 7-on-7 pass skeleton with the offense going against the defense one-on-ones between the wide receivers and tight ends against the secondary, the running backs versus the linebackers and then the offensive and defensive lines in a pass-rush scenario. The Spring Game and 1-on-1 Showcase is estimated to last roughly 90 minutes to two hours in length.
