Texas Tech football got a major upgrade this summer. The Red Raiders invested $1.6 million into a completely new locker room.
The program, entering a pivotal season after failing to reach a bowl game for the second time in three years and recording just 16 wins the last three years — their lowest three-year total since 1990-92 — razed the old locker room and built a brand new one.
"We are fortunate that our administration and donors actively invest in our student-athletes, who spend countless hours in the [Football Training Facility] during the year," head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "These renovations will not only greatly impact their lives but also the future of our program as we continue to recruit future student-athletes to this great university."
The players got their first look at the new digs on Monday after they returned from a week-long break. It features 120 steel lockers, players' lounge, 60-inch TVs and spectacular lighting displays. The adjacent weight room also receive a few small improvements. Texas Tech will open a new sports performance center later this year.
Here's a look at the new locker room:
