Could it be a better time to outfit Texas Tech?
With the football team’s resounding 56-20 win over Oklahoma State on Saturday, it is now vying for the No. 1 spot in the BCS polls with Alabama. Texas Tech is now first in the computer rankings and second in both the Harris and USA Today Coaches polls.
Already in the midst of a five-year agreement – that began in 2006 -- with the football team, Under Armour is to announce Monday in Lubbock that it will outfit all 17 of Texas Tech’s teams. The new five-year $11 million agreement includes uniforms, other apparel and shoes. The partnership with men’s basketall begins this season with the other relationships launching in July 2009.
The Baltimore-based company already has partnerships with the University of Maryland, Auburn, University of South Florida, University of South Carolina, University of Hawaii and the University of Utah.
