2022 volleyball schedule announced – Texas Tech Red Raiders

LUBBOCK, Texas – Coming off the program’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2001, head coach Tony Graystone announced the 2022 Red Raider volleyball schedule.

“I’m really looking forward to the 2022 non-conference schedule,” says Graystone. “We are playing several strong teams and we’ll be tested as we prepare for Big 12 play. The Big 12 will be as good as ever this year and we are excited about where we fit in. There’s a lot of reasons to feel good about our team this year and I can’t wait to get started.”

The 2022 schedule will feature 13 non-conference matches and 16 contests against Big 12 opponents. Tech will play 15 matches against NCAA Tournament teams from the 2021 season.

The Big 12 schedule will return to its normal format, last used in the 2019 season, where teams will play once at home and once away from September to November. The past two seasons the conference slate featured back-to-back games against the same opponent either home or away.

Tech will start with a pair of scrimmages at home, first hosting North Texas on Aug. 18 at 4:00 pm at the United Supermarkets Arena and again at 6:00 pm on Aug. 20 for the annual Red and Black intrasquad scrimmage.

The Red Raiders open the 2022 regular season slate on the road at a tournament in South Bend, Indiana (Aug. 26-27) as they face Notre Dame and Milwaukee.

Tech will host Tarleton State in a midweek match for the home opener, Tuesday, Aug. 30 at United Supermarkets Arena.

The Red Raiders will hit the road for back-to-back weeks, first stopping in Athens, Georgia (Sept. 2-3) for a tournament against College of Charleston, Charlotte and UGA. The Red Raiders will stay in the Lone Star State for a tournament at Rice in Houston (Sept. 9-11). The tournament will feature three NCAA Tournament teams from 2021: Texas A&M- Corpus Christi, Brown and Rice.

Tech returns to Lubbock for the Red Raider Classic Sept. 15-17 where Tech will host SMU, UTRGV, Arizona State and Oral Roberts. The tournament will serve as the non-conference finale as the Red Raiders will open Big 12 play the following week.

The Red Raiders will jumpstart Big 12 play on the road at West Virginia (Sept. 24) before returning to Lubbock to host Kansas State (Sept. 28) and Texas (Oct. 1).

Tech makes a quick trip to Fort Worth for a match against TCU (Oct. 8) then back home to host Oklahoma (Oct. 12) before heading to Kansas (Oct. 15) and Baylor (Oct. 19).

The Red Raiders will welcome Iowa State to the United Supermarkets Arena on Oct. 21, Baylor on Nov. 2 and TCU on Nov. 9 with a stop in Austin in between to face the Longhorns (Oct. 26).

Tech travels north to Norman to take on Oklahoma (Nov. 9) then moves on to Ames to face Iowa State (Nov. 12). Tech hits the road one last time Nov. 23 in Manhattan when they meet Kansas State.

The Red Raiders’ final home matches will take place Nov. 19 against West Virginia and Nov. 25 against Kansas in the regular season finale.
