Texas Tech players held a halftime dunk contest last night

Texas Tech is not the first football team to provide halftime basketball entertainment with a dunk contest, but they are the first I've seen to capture the festivities on a GoPro camera. 

In front of 12,667 fans, five Red Raiders put on a show the NBA should be envious of, capped by one player leaping over the oversized mascot head of Raider Red to slam one home. 

Sadly, the football team's efforts were not enough to spur their basketball counterparts on to victory, as No. 8 Kansas squeaked by Texas Tech, 64-63.
