Texas Tech agrees to ’12 game vs. Bama

Texas Tech is taking Tommy Tuberville back to his roots, having reportedly reached a verbal agreement to open the 2012 season against defending national champion Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“We’ve agreed to do it,” Texas Tech athletic director Gerald Myers told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal in Wednesday’s editions. “I think Alabama’s agreed to do it. But, we haven’t gotten down to signing a contract or anything like that.”
