The Masked Rider will ride a stand-in horse for tonight’s game against Texas Christian.
Centennial Champion will continue to rest this week for Texas Tech University's home football game against Texas Christian University. Inflammation sidelined the mascot prior to the Kansas State game at Jones AT&T Stadium on Oct. 14.
The Masked Rider will instead ride a stand-in horse for all game day and in-game activities.
Veterinarians expect Centennial Champion to return to his normal pre-game duties for Texas Tech's home finale Nov. 18 against the University of Central Florida.
