The Red Raiders will begin the season against Murray State at 7 p.m. CT on Sept. 3 and the game will be televised via Big 12 Now on ESPN+. Due to the fact the game is being streamed, Tech allowed its fanbase to choose the game time, with about 65 percent choosing the 7 p.m. CT lot.

The following week the Red Raiders face future Big 12 Conference foes Houston, which will be televised by FOX Sports 1 (FS1). Kickoff for that game against the Cougars is set for 3 p.m. CT on Sept. 10 at Jones AT&T Stadium.

Texas Tech will close out non-conference play on Sept. 17 on the road against NC State with a 6 p.m. CT kickoff on ESPN2. It will be just the sixth-ever matchup between the Wolfpack and the Red Raiders, and the first from Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina since 2003. NC State will visit Lubbock for the 2027 season.
