Texas and Texas Tech to meet on Black Friday

Posted March 2nd, 2017


For the second straight year, Texas will shop for a win on Black Friday.

Texas’ football program announced on Thursday that its home game against Texas Tech has been moved to Nov. 24 which is the day after Thanksgiving. The showdown between the Longhorns and Red Raiders had been originally scheduled for Nov. 25. The time of the game will be announced at a later date.

Last year, Texas dropped a 31-9 decision to TCU on Black Friday.


This is the second game that has moved around on Texas’ calendar. In January, Texas’ road trip to Iowa State was shifted from Sept. 30 to Sept. 28.
