The last time Texas Tech had game-opening kickoff return for a touchdown had been 1973.

That was until Keke Coutee's 93-yard kickoff return Saturday gave the Red Raiders a quick 7-0 lead over Baylor at the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.



Lawrence Williams was the last Red Raiders player to start a game with a kickoff return for a touchdown. That came in their 41-7 win over New Mexico in 1973.
