The weather forecast for this weekend is about as perfect as it gets. I've been to cold, rainy Tech homecomings but that won't be the case this year. The high for today and tomorrow will be in the mid-80s and the low in the low-50s, with non-factoring winds at no more than 15 mph. In other words, like I said, it's going to be perfect. And this is a good thing for all the activities planned, like the Rowdy Raider Rally at the Student Union at noon on Friday, the free TTU vs Kansas soccer game at 7 Friday night, and the pep rally following that at the John B. Walker Soccer Complex.

The homecoming parade Saturday morning at 10 will be rain-free. Gates open at Jones AT&T stadium at 2 p.m.for Raidergate followed by Texas Tech(4-1) against Kansas State(5-0) at 6p.m. Texas Tech is favored by three points. The combination of homecoming fun and the great weather should mean a win for the Red Raiders. Go Tech!
