Wreck ‘Em Tech – A group of TTUHSC El Paso faculty, staff and students took the opportunity to travel to Lubbock to watch the football game against UTEP last weekend and what a great time we had. Texas Tech hosted its fourth annual Celebrate Cotton Game and fans were encouraged to wear white clothing. Lubbock County is the nation’s top cotton-producing county and Texas is the country’s top cotton-producing state. The sea of white, with some clusters of red and black, was impressive. You could feel the energy in the stadium and there was a continuous roar of excitement. In the end the Red Raiders played a good game, defeating UTEP 69-20.

The goal is to highlight our unique research and partnerships; talented students, faculty, staff and physicians; state of the art facilities; and other elements that contribute to the ongoing growth of TTUHSC El Paso.
