Like waffles? Texas Tech is giving 10,000 away Saturday against West Virginia

Things aren’t going so well in Lubbock these days.

After the Red Raiders opened the season 2-0, they’ve dropped their last three, including both contests in Big 12 play. In order to make sure student support doesn’t start wavering, Tech is offering a new promotion for this weekend’s game against West Virginia — free waffles.

Yes, this is a real thing.

The program is giving away 10,000 waffles in a promotion it’s calling #turndownforwaffles. Again, this is a real promotion.

If there’s one benefit to the promotion (other than free waffles), fans will have something to either binge eat or throw at the team if things go south against the Mountaineers.
