The Texas Tech Athletics department has announced changes to its heat management plan. The major change is that every fan will be allowed to bring in one 20 ounce or less bottle of water to any outdoor venue at Texas Tech.

Like football, baseball, or soccer.

Only the unopened bottle is allowed. Nothing else will be allowed. Personal bottles are a no-no, even if they're empty.

Texas Tech has also added four cooling stations located throughout the concourse. The stations will be shaded and will have cold towels, fans and sunscreen. No word on if misters will be available. The stations will make their debut at the football home opener on September 2nd.

"The health and well-being of our fans is always a priority to our staff when hosting events," Texas Tech Senior Associate Athletics Director Robert Giovannetti said. "We want our fans to have a great experience and we feel this plan helps us achieve that goal."

Last offseason, the Texas Tech Athletics Department instituted the clear bag policy.
