Doesn’t seem to be a lot of debate from my end of things, but it would seem this sets up for an undefeated season for the Red Raiders. No question. Without a doubt. Don’t even have to go through them with W’s or L’s because they’re all WINS.
9/5: @ UTEP
9/26: @ Iowa State
10/3: West Virginia
10/31: @ Oklahoma State
11/7: @ Kansas State
11/21: @ TCU

I feel sorry for all of the opponents who will play Texas Tech in 2020, but dems are the rules.
In a bit of seriousness, the BYE, or open date if that’s what you prefer, leads up to a Thursday night game where Texas Tech hosts Baylor so that could be fun. That Baylor game is also 11 days from the West Virginia game and then afterwards 9 days until the Texas game that Texas Tech actually hosts, so that’s maybe way there aren’t two open dates on the schedule. Texas Tech doesn’t have to leave Lubbock for darn near the entire month of October.
And the other interesting quirk is that Texas Tech hosts Oklahoma for Thanksgiving essentially. You’ll also note that there are only 11 games listed and Texas Tech still has to schedule a FCS opponent for 2020.
