SFA vs. Texas Tech | Home Game Hotspots

"He's a lumberjack, and he's okay. He sleeps all night, and he works all day..."

Ronald Martinez

Game day is coming, folks. Break out your stadium seat, your TTU gear, and in my case, your 50 SPF sunscreen and get to the Jones!

Lubbock has a little more to see and do during the game weeks, and I hope to cover as much of that here as I can. As always, chime in below in the comments or on the twitter.

Also, please do me a favor and check out this expert analysis concerning our upcoming opponent. With this in mind, it's safe to say we could expect anything from the Lumberjacks this Saturday.

Saturday, September 7th

Jones AT&T Stadium - 6:00pm

This week, the plan is to "Stripe out the Jones." Even sections and students wear RED while all other odd sections wear BLACK. I've always been proud to be odd. The tradition continues.

The Blue Light
Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights


The Arrogant Texan (113 University Ave)
The best BBQ joint/candy store/ice cream parlor in town! I haven't had a chance to try their BBQ, but the ice cream is worth the stop. From Texas Monthly:

Located on the main drag of Texas Tech, this joint is as arrogant as it comes, boasting that everything on the menu is better than the rest. Still, the friendly staff is happy to usher you through the choices: the usual meats, spicy or sweet coleslaw, and a full bar of sauces with names like Stampede White and Trail Boss Primer. They parcel out the protein the way a meat market would: wrapped in butcher paper that also serves as your plate. Don’t forget dessert: Austin’s Amy’s Ice Cream has found its way to Lubbock!

What say you, VTMers?
