Home of the Red Raiders, Texas Tech’s campus is both beautiful and large! Covering 1,839 acres of land, it is one of the largest land mass campuses in the United States.
Did you know? At every home football game, Red Raider fans don’t just spend kickoff cheering on their team … they also throw tortillas onto the field! Yes, tortillas fly everywhere in Jones AT&T Stadium! This unofficial tradition, known as the Tortilla Toss, began in the 1990s after a sports broadcaster made a comment that the only thing in Lubbock was a tortilla factory and Texas Tech football. Today, students throw flour tortillas on the opening kickoff at each game.
