CollegeFootballNews.com has out their Top 40 (plus one) non-conference games for 2008 and your Red Raiders made the list...twice!
41. SMU at Texas Tech, Sept. 13
Gear it up. June Jones and SMU will have a little bit of time to warm up the engines for a game that should be one of the biggest displays of offensive fireworks this season. One thing to note: SMU was 116th in the nation in pass defense last year and gave up 473 passing yards and four touchdown passes in last year's 49-9 loss.
38. Texas Tech at Nevada, Sept. 6
While this might not seem like that big a deal, it's not just Texas Tech's only non-conference road trip, it's also its only game against a 2007 bowl team until the October 18th trip to Texas A&M. If you like
While these numbers aren't very high on the list...it sure doesn't hurt to think that our 2 non-conf games vs 1A teams should draw at least SOME media exposure. Something is better than nothing!
