The Texas Tech Red Raiders football teams (1925 to 1980) represented Texas Tech University (known as Texas Technological College until 1969) in the college football seasons of 1925/26 to 1980/81. Originally, the teams played their home games at South Plains Fairgrounds. Beginning with the second home game of the 1926/27 season, they moved to Tech Field. Later, they began playing home games at Clifford B. and Audrey Jones Stadium. From 1925 to 1936, the teams were called the Matadors.

In a 2013 poll, the 1953, 1973, and 1976 seasons were all nominated as being the best seasons in Texas Tech football history. The 1973 team defeated the 2008 Texas Tech Red Raiders football team by a margin of 53.2% to 46.8%.[1]
