Former Texas A&M offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury is now the head coach at Texas Tech. While talks of Texas and Texas A&M renewing their rivalry have grown stale, the Aggies and Red Raiders rematch is gaining optimism. Texas A&M leads the series 37-32-1.
Tech is set to take on Arkansas this year in a premier non-conference bout.
