Red Raiders Fall to Lobos. The ten game winning streak is officially over as New Mexico takes down Texas Tech, 6-5, in extra innings. Texas Tech as ahead pretty much the entire game only to lose it in the 10th inning. Up next are the Longhorns.

Hosting a Regional? D1Baseball is projecting the field of 64 and has Texas Tech hosting a regional. It’s about to be a huge few weeks for the baseball team, playing Texas this weekend and TCU coming up.


Texas Tech to Play Colorado State. Via the official site, Texas Tech will play Colorado State in 2025 in Fort Collins and 2026 in Lubbock. As you all may remember, Joe Parker was an associate AD at Texas Tech and is now the AD at Colorado State.

Guerrero Messed Up on Satellite Camps. Via Fox’s Stewart Mandel, apparently UCLA athletic director, Dan Guerrero, said he messed up and voted the wrong way:

Speaking to reporters after Wednesday’s annual College Football Playoff meetings, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said that UCLA AD Dan Guerrero, the league’s representative on the NCAA Division-I Council, “did not vote the way he was supposed to.” Echoing recent comments from outspoken Washington State coach Mike Leach, Scott said 11 of the league’s 12 schools “wanted this studied more comprehensively, but in the meantime, we prefer the status quo, which for us allows coaches to attend camps in other markets.”

Wait. What? So, ESPN’s Max Olson said last night on Twitter that Texas Tech and West Virginia did support the ban on satellite camps. That’s pretty interesting.

Miscellaneous. DMN’s Mike DuPont takes a look at the offensive line . . . from FiveThirtyEight’s Andy Schwarz the NCAA isn’t going broke any time soon (it’s a lot of money) . . . really terrific piece from Sports On Earth’s David Ubben about how it appears that Texas fans are hoping and relying on the arm of a freshman quarterback . . .
