Centennial Champion Makes First Trot for Texas Tech Football
In an entrance that's widely regarded as one of the best in all of college football, the 61st Masked Rider Caroline Hobbs and newly-dubbed Centennial Champion debuted against Murray State as a brand new pairing. Fearless Champion was a fixture at Texas Tech for a decade, but now it's Centennial's time to shine.
Centennial's first run wasn't that of a polished veteran, but that'll come with time. It's tough for Texas Tech's players to play in front of a crowd of 50,000 for the first time. I'll bet Centennial Champion will get used to the bright lights just like a 5-star quarterback settles into his first season.
Centennial Champion will have another opportunity to lead the team onto the field on September 10th against Houston at Jones AT&T Stadium.

Centennial Champion might not have sprinted out of the gate, but the Texas Tech offense sure did with 42 first-half points against the out-matched and overpowered Murray State Racers. Tyler Shough left early with an injury, but the offense didn't miss a beat with Donovan Smith adding four touchdown drives to finish out the half.
