PROVO, Utah – The next BYU football home game will take place against the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Saturday, October 21.

On Monday, television and kickoff time info was released for BYU’s first time hosting the Red Raiders in Provo.

The expectation was probably to see a “Big 12 After Dark” timeslot. Instead, the TV executives gave BYU/Texas Tech a primetime spot.

BYU football will host Texas Tech at 5 p.m. on October 21

BYU versus Texas Tech will kick off at 5 p.m. (MT) on October 21. It will be televised on FS1 and the over-the-air radio broadcast in Salt Lake City will air on KSL NewsRadio (102.7 FM, 1160 AM).

BYU hasn’t faced Texas Tech since 1940. That was a 21-20 win for the Red Raiders.

BYU is currently 4-1 overall on the season and 1-1 in Big 12 action. Texas Tech is 3-3 after starting the year 0-2. The Red Raiders have won their last two games with backup QB Behren Morton stepping in for an injured Tyler Shough.

Texas Tech hosts Kansas State this weekend in Lubbock, while BYU goes on the road to take on TCU in Ft. Worth.
