The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks are opening the season this weekend with the Red Raiders of Texas Tech. The Lumberjacks are entering the second season since they restarted the program. The program was dormant for 11 years but came back with 15 wins in the first season. Texas Tech is coming off a 31-26-1 season in 2006. They return a fab four of sophomores in Roger Kieschnick, Miles Morgan, Willie Rueda, and James Leverton. All four should be key players for the Red Raiders to improve on their season in 2007.
UPDATE: They have postponed Game 1 of the series until Saturday and Game 2 will take place on Sunday. Game 3 has been canceled. Full release here.
