Report: Texas Tech, Arizona State working on Home-and-Home Football Series

By Kevin Kelley -

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are in discussions with the Arizona State Sun Devils to schedule a future home-and-home football series, SportsRadio 1340 The Fan has reported.

According to The Fan, the two schools will meet in 2017 and 2018. Although locations were not specified, Arizona State would likely travel to Lubbock in 2017 since both of their non-conference games scheduled for that season are at home.

Arizona State is currently set to open the 2017 season with back-to-back games at home vs. New Mexico State on Sept. 2 and San Diego State on Sept. 9.

In 2018, the Sun Devils are slated to open at home vs. UTSA on Sept. 1 and then travel to San Diego State on Sept. 8.

Texas Tech currently only has one game scheduled for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons, a home-and-home series vs. Houston (Sept. 16, 2017 at Houston, Sept. 15, 2017 at Lubbock).

In their first and only meeting back in 1999, Arizona State defeated Texas Tech 31-13 in Tempe.

Their second ever meeting will be in on Monday, Dec. 30 in the 2013 National University Holiday Bowl. The game will be televised by ESPN at 10:15pm ET.
