The Gonzaga Bulldogs and the Texas Tech Red Raiders have agreed to play one game next season in Phoenix, Arizona, on Dec. 19, 2020.

The Zags future schedule is relatively sparse at the moment. Gonzaga has games against Washington and Arizona on the books and will be playing in the Orlando Invitational (alongside the Auburn Tigers, Belmont Bruins, Boise State Broncos, Michigan State Spartans, Saint Louis Billikens, Siena Saints, and Xavier Musketeers).

A game against Chris Beard and the Red Raiders is exactly the sort of high-profile opponent we like to see on Gonzaga’s schedule. Although the Red Raiders had an up and down year, Texas Tech will be much better next season.

USA Today picked Texas Tech as No. 10 in their too-early top 25 preseason rankings (Gonzaga is No. 1 BTW), so the showcase between two potential top 10 teams will be one of the big highlights on Gonzaga’s non-conference schedule.
