Texas Tech renews acquaintances with a former Southwest Conference foe, begins a new series with another and faces a formidable Big 12 Conference slate on the 2007 Red Raider Football schedule.

The Red Raiders play six games at home and six on the road next season. Texas Tech opens the season on the road at SMU on Sept. 1. This is the first game of a new four-year contract, which will feature home games on alternating years. The second game of a two-year deal with UTEP takes place in the home opener on Sept. 8, while a new two-year agreement with former SWC foe Rice begins in Houston on Sept. 15. The Owls will come to Jones AT&T Stadium in 2008.
