Arizona-Texas Tech 2020 football game rescheduled for 2034

The Arizona Wildcats and Texas Tech Red Raiders have agreed to postpone their postponed 2020 football game to the 2034 season, has learned.

Texas Tech was previously scheduled to host Arizona on Saturday, September 19, 2020, but the game was canceled due to the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Red Raiders will now host the Wildcats at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas on Saturday, September 9, 2034, according to a copy of the contract rider obtained from Texas Tech University via a Texas Public Information Act request.

The rescheduled contest is one of a home series that began on September 14, 2019 at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona. The Wildcats defeated the Red Raiders in this contest, 28-14.

Texas Tech and Arizona first met on the grill in 1932 at Lubbock, and the Red Raiders currently hold a 26-5-2 advantage in the all-time series.

The Texas Tech-Arizona contest in 2034 is now the first non-conference game scheduled for each team this season.

Texas Tech finished the 2021 regular season 6-6 overall and 3-6 in Big 12 action. The Red Raiders face the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn. On Tuesday, December 28.

Arizona finished with a disappointing 1-11 overall and 1-8 in Pac-12 action in 2021. It was the first season under new head coach Jedd Fisch.
