The Texas–Texas Tech football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Texas Longhorns football team of the University of Texas at Austin and Texas Tech Red Raiders football team of Texas Tech University. The Chancellor's Spurs is the trophy awarded to the winner of the game. The trophy is a set of spurs exchanged between the chancellors of the University of Texas System and Texas Tech University System. The teams first played during the 1928 season and have played annually since 1960 when Texas Tech began participating in the Southwest Conference. The tradition of a "traveling trophy" between the two universities began during the 1996 season when, for the first time, both universities' administration included a chancellor position.

History[edit]

The first meeting between the Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Matadors (as the team was known until 1937) was in 1928. The teams only faced each other nine times until 1960.[1] Since 1960, both teams have played annually as members of the Southwest Conference through 1995 and from 1996 as charter members of the Big 12 Conference.[2] The 2008 game was one of three games that led to a 3-way tie controversy in the Big 12 Conference South Division.

Chancellor's Spurs[edit]

In 1996 the Texas Tech University System was established and the system's first chancellor, John T. Montford, started the exchange of the Chancellor's Spurs between the two universities.[3][4] The 46th meeting between the teams marked the first game the winner would receive the Chancellor's Spurs. The spurs are gold and silver and engraved with Texas Tech's Double T and Texas' interlocking UT logo.[4]
