A recently retired Texas Tech official passed away. The Big 12 football programs are valued. Le'Raven Clark makes another All-American team and Cody Davis blogs about playing in his last college football game.

The men take on Baylor tonight at 6:00 pm. The game is on ESPN2 I think. The Lady Raiders host Kansas St. tomorrow night and they will be on FOX College Sports. So how about that game last night. The cold dark and lonely offseason begins.
