Texas Tech Bowl History[edit]

The Texas Tech Red Raiders football team has appeared in 36 post-season bowl games since the team's inaugural season in 1925. Texas Tech has won its last four consecutive bowl games, and nine of its last eleven. Texas Tech's rich bowl tradition ranks 17th in all-time bowl appearances and has set many bowl game attendance records. The Red Raiders have an overall bowl record of 14 wins, 21 losses, and 1 tie.

Texas Tech's first post-season bowl game was at the conclusion of the 1937 season, when the Red Raiders played in the 1938 Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas against the West Virginia Mountaineers. Texas Tech's most recent bowl game appearance, was the 2013 National University Holiday Bowl, victory against the Arizona State Sun Devils. Nine of Texas Tech's 36 bowl game bids have been to the Sun Bowl, the most appearances by any team to the second-oldest college football bowl game.

Attendance[edit]

The Red Raiders' fans have set attendance records at 10 bowl games, including the team's first bowl game appearance in the 1938 Sun Bowl.[1] Although 8 of the 10 attendance records were eventually broken, attendance records from 2 bowl game appearances, the 2004 Pacific Life Holiday Bowl and 2009 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, remain unbroken. The 2009 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic's attendance record of 88,175 was the second-most attended bowl game of the 2008–09 bowl game season.[1][2]
