Saturday’s game between No. 24 Texas Tech and No. 14 Oklahoma has reached sellout status, ensuring that a capacity crowd will be on hand for the Red Raiders’ Big 12 home opener at Jones AT&T Stadium.
The advance sellout is the first for Texas Tech since the regular-season finale against Baylor in 2008, when Tech fans bought the last remaining tickets 12 days before kickoff. Saturday’s game will mark the first sellout at Jones AT&T Stadiumsince Oklahoma State (60,454) on Oct. 16, 2010.
A football game could be defined as 22 guys beating the hell out of each other for 60 minutes. It’s rough, inelegant, and full of foul language that no man would share in the presence of the opposite sex. It’s a game that grown men play, while other grown men and women watch and cheer, gamble, and drink copious amounts of alcohol hoping their team comes out on top. On its surface football seems barbaric, a modern gladiator arena where meatheads take their medicine and dish it out too. One man was able to look at football though and see something more, a story worth telling.
