Texas Tech Alumni Association Austin Chapter Tailgate 2021

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! With the Longhorns on their way to the SEC this may be one of the last tailgate parties we have.

Our Red Raider football team will be coming to Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns in the Big 12 Season Opener on September 25th with an early kickoff of 11am. Join us before the game starting at 8am for food, beer, mimosas, 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 TVs.

We will be offering mimosas, beer, and water and taking donations for them to raise money for scholarships. We will be able to take credit cards but cash is always appreciated. Breakfast tacos and wraps 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 Saturday morning! For pricing and reservations reach out to ttaa.austin@gmail.com. Reservations are available for Friday and Saturday night.
