The Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Pittsburgh Panthers conclude their 2008 spring football season live in front of a national audience on the NFL Network.

“Spring Game Saturday” on NFL Network begins with the Texas Tech Red-Black game live at 11:00 AM ET from Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, TX. NFL Network will simulcast FOX 34 MyLubbockTV’s local broadcast featuring Drew Dougherty calling the game, with Chris Level serving as color analyst.

“We are extremely happy the NFL Network has agreed to broadcast our annual Red-Black spring football game,” Texas Tech Director of Athletics Gerald Myers said. “This broadcast is a reward for the student-athletes and coaches that put in a lot of hard work to prepare for the 2008 season. We are excited to continue our relationship with the NFL Network that started with the 2006 Insight Bowl.”

EDIT: The time in the press release is wrong. The broadcast will start at 1PM EST
