Texas Tech, Colorado State mutually cancel future football series

By Kevin Kelley -

The Texas Tech Red Raiders and Colorado State Rams have  mutually agreed to cancel their future football series, FBSchedules.com has confirmed.

Texas Tech was previously scheduled to travel to face the Colorado State Rams of the Mountain West Conference on Sept. 6, 2025. The game was set to be the first of a home-and-home series that is slated to conclude at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas, on Sept. 19, 2026.

Earlier this year, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported that the Red Raiders bought out of the road game at Colorado State in 2025 and will pay the Rams $1 million for the cancellation.

According to football agreement cancellation obtained from Texas Tech University that was executed on April 24, 2024, both games of the series have been canceled. Neither team will owe a cancellation fee to the other, per the document.

Texas Tech has already replaced the CSU game in 2025 with the Kent State Golden Flashes, which the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal previously reported. Texas Tech will host Kent State on Sept. 6, 2025 and will pay the school a $1.5 million guarantee for the game.

Earlier today, Colorado State announced its replacement opponent for Texas Tech. The Rams will host the UTSA Roadrunners on Sept. 20, 2025 before returning the trip the following season on Sept. 26, 2026 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Dan Rakow have A update on future of Notre Dame-USC Football series I am 50-50 on it mainly I really want UCLA-USC play EVERY Thanksgiving not just odd number years beginning next year 2025 plus I really want to be fair to UCLA & College Football Fans throughout Southern California & should Notre Dame-USC continue it’s series I highly recommend that it would be played in September when Big Ten really like to play OOC games that Month & I would NOT be disappointed should Notre Dame-USC rivalry end plus USC need better OOC opponents like North Texas,Hawaii & PAC reunion with Arizona State would make a lot of sense.

A great many number of both USC & Notre Dame fans would disagree with you, Dan Rakow. The reason the USC-Notre Dame games are scheduled the way that they are is because it gets very cold in South Bend during November, and good number of Notre Dame alumni live in Los Angeles.

Seth H. Notre Dame-USC scheduling will get even more complicated now that USC is in Big Ten plus UCLA needs fair scheduling & very highly recommend UCLA-USC to play every Thanksgiving weekend.

Miami would make fantastic alternative for Notre Dame should USC play in September or rivalry itself comes to a close.
