Local Weather History For September 18th...
1965: This evening, Texas Tech football hosted their season opener against the Kansas Jayhawks. Early in the game, a
nuiscance rain developed followed by thunderstorms shortly before half time. By the third quarter, an full-blown deluge
was underway with torrential rain and lightning. Both teams soldiered on as lightning strafed the city and fans could
barely discern the players on the field. A tornado was reported in the vicinity of Ropesville earlier in the evening and
by late in the third quarter tornado sirens on campus were sounded. Unfortunately, most of the 35,000-plus fans were too
stubborn to seek shelter and the game continued until the beginning of the fourth quarter when Tech head coach J.T. King
conferred with coach Jack Mitchell of the Jayhawks and both agreed to call the game, which Tech led 26-7. Although
multiple tornadoes were reported by the public in the Lubbock area, none were officially confirmed. This game was also
noteworthy for being the debut of instant replay in college football. Texas Tech graduate Robert Walker used Ampex
technology to allow J.T. King to review plays the moment they concluded. The NCAA banned this application of instant
replay in 1967 because not all schools could afford the technology. Source: Joseph Yeager of scout.com.
