Texas Tech Alumni Association Austin Chapter Tailgate 2019

The Red Raiders are coming to town. Time to tailgate!

It's that time again! Join us for a sea of Red Raider fans in our Bi-Annual Texas Tech Alumni Association Austin Chapter Tailgate!

Our Red Raider football team will be coming to Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns bright and early on Friday, November 29th at 11 am. Join us before the game beginning at 8am for food, beer, and tailgating! We'll be at the corner of 18th and Trinity, walking distance to the UT stadium. Look for the Red and Black! Don't have a ticket to the game? Stay and watch the game with us on big screen TVs.

We will be offering beer and water and taking donations for them to raise money for scholarships. We are selling hats, as well. We will be able to take credit cards but cash is always appreciated. BBQ plates will be sold for a small fee to help support the Raider Rojos Scholarships. You are welcome to bring your own food, drinks, and chairs.

We are a non profit organization and all proceeds go towards scholarships for local students to attend Texas Tech so any and all donations are appreciated.

Coming in from out of town? Wanna get your tailgate started early? Rent an overnight RV spot from the Alumni Association and be there bright and early Friday morning! For pricing and reservations reach out to ttaa.austin@gmail.com. Reservations are available for Thursday and Friday night.
