The Red Raiders defied the odds last night, beating No. 1 Texas. This marks the third time that Texas Tech has held the Challenge Cup, with the last one coming in 1991 with a win over Baylor. In any case, the Red Raiders improved to 9-0 on the season and are now in the discussion for a National Championship game.
Texas Tech will have a tough time defending the Cup though, with games against Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, and if they hold on to the Big XII South title, Missouri. The cup defense begins next weekend against Oklahoma State, who had previously held the cup this season.
