The Masked Rider is the oldest and most popular mascot of Texas Tech University that still exists today.
The Masked Rider
Originally the Masked Rider started as a dare in 1936 and was then called the ghost rider, because no one knew the rider's identity.
These ghost riders circled the field at home football games and then disappeared.
One of the most well known landmarks on campus is the statue of Will Rogers and his horse Soapsuds.
Before every home football game the Saddle Tramps wrap Old Will with red crepe paper.
Will Rogers and Soapsuds have also been wrapped up in black crepe paper to mourn national tragedies.
Legend says, the horse and Will were turned 23 degrees to the east so the horse's posterior was facing in the direction of Texas A&M, one of the school's rivals.
