The game will kickoff at 5:30 p.m. (EST) on Monday, December 23 and will be televised by ESPN.
"Texas Tech had a great season with a huge win over Texas late in the year," Selection Committee Chairman Bill Dymond said. "The Red Raiders have a high-powered offense that will be exciting to watch in the Mazda Tangerine Bowl."
The Red Raiders will be representing the Big 12 Conference in the first year of the league's four-year partnership with the Bowl. The Mazda Tangerine Bowl is also the conference's first tie-in with a bowl game in the state of Florida.
"Football fans in Central Florida should be very excited to see Texas Tech's offense with quarterback Kliff Kingsbury," FCS President Jane Hames said. "We're looking forward to a great game between Tech and Clemson."
This will be Texas Tech's second visit to Orlando to participate in a bowl game. The Red Raiders played in the original Tangerine Bowl, now the Capital One Bowl, in 1977. Texas Tech fell to Florida State, 40-17, in front of a then-record crowd of 44,502. The two teams combined for more than 900 yards of total offense in the game.
The Mazda Tangerine Bowl will be the first meeting between Texas Tech and Clemson.
