Students Prepare to ‘Wreck ‘Em’ for Football Season

Red Raiders ready to take over Jones AT&T Stadium with movie night and live music.


It’s that time of year again when Red Raider voices billow from Jones AT&T Stadium. The crowd cheers as the Masked Rider rides across the field, the Texas Tech University fight song plays and the football team emerges onto the field pumped up for the first game of the season.

To help students get in the spirit, Texas Tech Athletics, Tech Activities Board and the Center for Campus Life will host a Wreck ‘Em Rally on Saturday (Aug. 23) at Jones AT&T Stadium, featuring a message from Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury, live music and movie night.

“As a part of Raider Welcome and a new student’s first weekend at Texas Tech, we are excited to provide this event as a fun, free and safe opportunity for students to experience university spirit and traditions,” said Amy Murphy, dean of students and managing director for Texas Tech’s Center for Campus Life. “The first few weeks at a new university can be overwhelming. We want students to have access to unique experiences unlike anything they could participate in outside of their new school. What better place to hang out late at night than Jones AT&T Stadium surrounded by other Red Raider students excited for the upcoming school year.”

A Texas Tech student I.D. is required for admission.
