Tarleton's move to Division I FCS football continues to grow at a rapid pace and the Texans announced their first scheduled FBS opponent in program history Thursday evening with a visit to Texas Tech University in 2023.

Tarleton will visit Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock on September 16, 2023. The Texans are set to join NCAA Division I next fall as an independent program. Tarleton will begin its four-year transitional period this fall. The game against Texas Tech will take place in Tarleton's final year of transition.

This will mark the first-ever meeting between Tarleton and Texas Tech on the gridiron.
