WACO, Texas – Baylor soccer (7-3-2, 1-2-1 Big 12) gets a rare single-match weekend of Big 12 play, hosting the Texas Tech Red Raiders (8-4-1, 1-2-1 Big 12) on Friday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.

The Bears look for a bounce-back win, going 0-1-1 on a road trip to Oklahoma last weekend that included a draw with OU and a 1-0 overtime loss to No. 19 Oklahoma State.

Friday’s match is the first-ever Pups at the Pitch night, where fans are encouraged to bring their dogs out to Betty Lou, with free bandanas and treats while supplies last. Per university policy, the following breeds are prohibited: pit bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Doberman Pinschers, and any hybrids mixed with these breeds.

For the first time in program history, all home matches will feature a live streaming video and radio broadcast, available to subscribers on BaylorBears.com/allaccess.

Baylor has also partnered with La Mejor Waco (106.1 FM) to offer a Spanish radio simulcast of all eight Baylor soccer home matches.
