Fearless Champion roamed the Texas Tech sidelines for about a decade and was one of the greatest Masked Rider companions the school has ever seen. Now, a new horse will take the most recognizable entry in college football that involves a horse.

Buzz was announced this offseason to take over for Woody, known by the stage name of Fearless Champion. Now, Buzz will get a stage name of his own.

United Supermarkets ran a contest to name the horse, and the winner and name will be announced at the First Friday Art Trail on September 2nd ahead of the first game of the season on Saturday. The event will take place on the east side of The Buddy Holly Hall on Buddy's Patio.

According to the Buddy Holly Hall, it will be quite the event. "Join us as we celebrate First Friday Art Trail on September 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and kick off the school year! Enjoy savory fare provided by United Food & Beverages featuring smoked Raider Red Meats and more! Special guests include the Texas Tech Pom Squad, Raider Red, Texas Tech Masked Rider, and the horse naming contest winner announcement," the venue says.

Raider Red, the pom squad, and, of course, the Masked Rider and horse will be in attendance and the festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. On top of all of that, there's also food from both United Supermarkets and Raider Red Meats. Let's have a party.
