The Texas Longhorns almost looked like they could make it through the toughest 4-week stretch in the country unscathed, but Mike Leach's Texas Tech Red Raiders pulled it out in the final seconds to give the Longhorns their first loss.
Graham Harrell's pass to Michael Crabtree with only 1 second remaining put them ahead, and Texas' attempt at a miraculous kickoff return was denied when Texas Tech defender Franklin Mitchem picked off one of the lateral attempts.
The game could have (and probably should have) been sealed on the play before the TD, when Texas' Blake Gideon dropped what should have been an easy interception. That was Harrell's only incompletion on that game-winning drive, in which Texas Tech drove 62 yards down the field on 6 plays.
Harrell finished the game with 474 yards on 36/53 passing, and 2 TD's. Texas WR Malcolm Williams led all receivers with 182 yards and 2 TD, but Tech had 2 players (Crabtree and Edward Britton) with over 125 yards receiving, and the Red Raiders also had some success running the ball, with Shannon Woods and Baron Batch combining for 122 yards.
Texas moves into the "easy" part of their schedule now, with remaining games against Baylor, Kansas and Texas A&M. Texas Tech will experience the opposite, as they will host Oklahoma State, play at Oklahoma, and then finally finish the season with a cupcake against Baylor.
Look for Texas to obviously drop in the rankings, as Texas Tech will receive a nice boost. They may move up to as high as #3 in the AP poll.
