They were originally allotted to the University of Central Arkansas but after they didn't sell, were sent back to Texas Tech.

As we get prepared the season-opener, game-day hype on the tech campus is increasing.

The semester officially started today for tens of thousands of tech students and many of them are counting down the days until kick-off.

This is the largest freshman class Texas Tech has ever had and many of them say it's the atmosphere of red raider football that brought them to the university.

Christine Smith may be a first year student but she says game day celebrations run in the family.

"My dad went here and always talks about how fun the games are so I've always looked forward to it."

While some freshmen, like Gavin Jones, will get their first experience this weekend.

"I've actually never been to a college football game before," Jones says. “But I'll be there this weekend."
