The neutral-site contest will mark Tech’s third trip to the city of Houston over a four-year span as the Red Raiders will travel to face the University of Houston this fall after taking part in the 2015 AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl. Tech and LSU sold out the Texas Bowl in 2015, setting a new bowl record with 71,307 fans in attendance.
“We’re excited to return to Houston and take part in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff,” Texas Tech Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. “The support of Red Raider Nation helped set a new Texas Bowl attendance record in our last trip to Houston, so we look forward to NRG Stadium being filled with scarlet and black once again to kick off the 2018 season.”
