Next weekend, Texas and Texas Tech will get going before noon.

Texas and Texas Tech will kickoff at 11 a.m. on Nov. 5, the Longhorns announced on Monday. The showdown in Lubbock will be aired on Fox Sports 1.

Fun fact: Texas is 0-3 in late-morning kickoffs this season as their losses to Oklahoma State (49-31), Oklahoma (45-40) and Kansas State (24-21) all began at 11 a.m.  The Longhorns are 3-1 in the evening, and this week’s ABC-aired game against Baylor kicks off at 2:30 p.m.
