This week, the nation mourns over the passing of former President George H. W. Bush.

We took a look back and found video of George H.W. Bush giving his commencement speech to the students at Texas Tech University in 1999.

And on Wednesday (Dec. 5), the Texas Tech Saddle Tramps rang the victory bell 41 times to honor his service. Usually TTU will cover the Will Rogers and Soapsuds status with black, but this time the Saddle Tramps wanted to honor the former president differently.
