There won’t be a need to “Leggo my Eggo” at Texas Tech on Saturday.
The school plans to cook and serve 10,000 waffles to students to make sure they turn out in force in what has become a tough season for the Red Raiders (2-3, 0-2 Big 12).
They have lost three consecutive games — giving up an average 0f 46.3 points a game in that stretch — and school officials want to fill the seats against West Virginia, a game that begins at 11 a.m. in Lubbock, Texas.
In case you want to follow it on Twitter, it's hashtag — notice that I didn’t say hashbrowns — is #turndownforwaffles.
Former Texas Tech QB Kliff Kingsbury is in his second year as coach, but has struggled since the Red Raiders started 7-0 to begin his head coaching career in 2013.
They lost the final five regular-season games last season before defeating Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl.
That means they are 2-8 in their past 10 regular-season games and haven’t won a Big 12 game in nearly a year, since defeating West Virginia last Oct. 19.
The Red Raiders give up an average of 40 points a game (117th out of 125 FBS teams).
Pouring syrup on the field to slow the opposing offenses might be a better solution to save this season.
