The Chancellor's Spurs will be on the line for the 16th time when the Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Red Raiders show down on Saturday.

The trophy is, as you'd expect, a set of spurs exchanged between the chancellors of the University of Texas System and Texas Tech University System. The teams first played during the 1928 season and have played annually since 1960 when Texas Tech began participating in the Southwest Conference. The tradition of a "traveling trophy" between the two universities began during the 1996 season when, for the first time, both universities' administration included a chancellor position.

The first meeting between the Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Matadors (as the team was known until 1937) was in 1928. The teams only faced each other nine times until 1960. Since 1960, both teams have played annually as members of the Southwest Conference through 1995 and from 1996 as charter members of the Big 12 Conference in the South Division

Series record: Texas leads, 45-15.

Last year’s result: Texas won, 24-14.

Current streak: Texas has won two years in a row.

Longest-ever streak: Texas won eight games in a row.

First meeting: October 6, 1928 (Texas, 13-0).
