Texas Tech accepts an invitation to TaxAct Texas Bowl

Texas Tech officially accepted its 40th bowl invitation on Sunday. The Red Raiders will play Ole Miss in the TaxAct Texas Bowl at NRG Stadium in Houston on December 28. The game will start at 8 p.m., and ESPN will show it all over the country.

“It’s an honor for Texas Tech to be asked to play in the TaxAct Texas Bowl,” said Kirby Hocutt, who is in charge of athletics. “We can’t wait to show off our football team in a place where there are a lot of former Red Raiders.” “We’re excited to paint Houston and NRG Stadium red and black for an exciting game against Ole Miss.”

The Texas Bowl will be Texas Tech’s fifth trip to a bowl game in the program’s history. This is the program’s second-most bowl trip in its history. It will be Texas Tech’s first trip to the Texas Bowl since 2015. The Red Raiders are 2-2 all-time in the bowl, with wins over Navy in 2003 and Minnesota in 2012.

“On behalf of our whole team, we’re excited to play in the TaxAct Texas Bowl, which is one of the best bowl games this state has to offer,” said head coach Joey McGuire. “The most passionate college football fans follow the Red Raiders wherever they go.” “We can’t wait for NRG Stadium to be filled with Red Raider fans when we play the talented Ole Miss team.”

The bowl will be a rematch of the 2018 AdvoCare Texas Kickoff at NRG Stadium, which Ole Miss won 47-27 over the Red Raiders to start the season. This will be the seventh time Texas Tech and the Rebels have played each other and the fourth time they have played in a bowl game. In 2008, they met at the Cotton Bowl, and in 1998 and 1986, they met at two Independence Bowls.

TaxAct Texas Bowl Executive Director David Fletcher said, “We are excited to announce that the 2022 TaxAct Texas Bowl will be between the Ole Miss Rebels and the Texas Tech Red Raiders, two great schools from the SEC and Big 12, respectively.” “The Bowl is one of Houston’s biggest events every year, and we’re excited to have Ole Miss and Texas Tech back.” “We can’t wait to have these teams and their fans over for a fun week of Texas-themed bowl events that will lead up to a big game at NRG Stadium on Dec. 28.”

Fans of the Red Raiders are encouraged to buy TaxAct Texas Bowl tickets through the Texas Tech Ticket Office so that the school can get credit for the bowl. Here is more information about tickets for Red Raider fans and college students who want to go to Houston.

Donors and football season ticket holders can ask for Super Bowl tickets.

Members of the Red Raider Club and football season ticket holders now have until Monday at 5 p.m. to ask for bowl tickets (Dec. 5). During normal business hours, requests can be made at TexasTech.com or by calling the Texas Tech Athletics Ticket Office at 806-742-TECH (M-F, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

You need a Master Card, Visa, American Express, or Discover credit card to get bowl tickets. Emails will be sent out Tuesday evening to let people know if their ticket requests were accepted or not. The credit cards of people who buy tickets will be charged on or around Tuesday (Dec. 6). All donors and season ticket holders who get tickets will be seated based on how many points they have in the Red Raider Club. Once a request is filled, there will be no refunds or swaps.

Red Raider Club members and football season ticket holders who don’t take advantage of the exclusive request period can order bowl tickets, if they are still available, starting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday (Dec. 7). It’s important to know that the public sale of bowl tickets is not a given. It will only happen if bowl tickets are still available after all requests from donors and football season ticket holders have been filled.

During the public sale, there is no priority for donors, as tickets are sold first come, first served. Fans are encouraged to buy tickets from the Texas Tech Ticket Office so that the university can get credit for them. All tickets to the bowl game will be digital tickets that can be used on a phone. Before bowl tickets are sent out, more information will be sent out about how to handle them.

Bowl tickets are given to donors and people who buy football season tickets.

As was already said, donors to Texas Tech Athletics and people who buy season tickets must ask for bowl game tickets by 5 p.m. on Monday, December 5, to be given priority. During the donor/season ticket holder priority period, there are no limits on how many tickets can be requested. However, there are limits on how many tickets can be given out based on membership level and Red Raider Club Priority Points.

  • $50,000 and Up: 20 tickets
  • $10,000 – $49,999: 12 tickets
  • $5,000 – $9,999: 8 tickets
  • $500 – $4,999: 4 tickets
  • $25 – $499, Season Ticket Holders, & Young Alumni: 2 tickets

The athletics department can limit the number of tickets given out if they need to. This is to make sure that as many donors and season ticket holders as possible can be served. Who gets to sit where first depends on how many Red Raider Club priority points they have.

Emails will be sent out on December 6 evening to let people know if their ticket requests were accepted or not. Credit cards will be charged on or around Dec. 6 for those who buy tickets.

Please be aware that all tickets for the bowl will be digital or mobile tickets. Before the tickets are sent out, fans will get more information about how to get and use their mobile tickets.
