After a year spent on the sidelines with an injury, Fearless Champion returned to run the Masked Rider onto the field.

The new Masked Rider atop Fearless led the team out before the opening kickoff of Texas Tech's season opener against Montana State.

It's like Fearless never took a game off! Solid return that sparked the Texas Tech offense to score 28 points in the first-half on offense, and turn in a dominant defensive performance as well.
