The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled an officially licensed Texas Tech Rally Possum Bobblehead. The limited-edition bobblehead features the possum that went viral after running on the football field during Texas Tech’s 35-28 victory over rival TCU Nov. 2 at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, an official licensee of Texas Tech University, is producing the special-edition bobblehead.

Standing on a turf texture base resembling the turf at Jones AT&T Stadium, the Rally Possum is next to a bobbling football bearing the Texas Tech logo. The front of the red and black base reads “RALLY POSSUM” and “TEXAS TECH.” Each bobblehead is individually numbered to 2,023, and they are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s online store. The bobbleheads are expected to ship in February.

The 2023 game between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the TCU Horned Frogs will be remembered for Texas Tech’s 35-28 victory – and an appearance by a wild possum. With the score tied 7-7 at the end of the first quarter, the marsupial dashed onto the field at Jones AT&T Stadium. The determined possum went viral after being dragged off the field. Digging its claws into the ground, it looked shocked as it left the field, instantly creating a new set of memes on social media.

“We are excited to release this unique bobblehead to recognize the Rally Possum who helped propel the Texas Tech football team to victory over TCU in the 2023 West Texas Championship,” says Phil Sklar, co-founder, chief executive officer, National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “The football-loving possum played a small and memorable role as the Red Raiders reclaimed the Saddle Trophy for the first time since 2018. Texas Tech fans are sure to want this must-have bobblehead for their collection.”
