Mike Leach would've loved a game like this.  Texas Tech celebrated this win without him.

Finally, the Red Raiders could unwind a little.

With everyone still talking about their fired head coach, the Red Raiders blocked out the distractions and rallied to beat Michigan State 41-31 in a shootout at the Alamo Bowl on Saturday after a week that left Texas Tech in turmoil.

Texas Tech fired Leach on Wednesday after allegations that he mistreated Adam James. The wide receiver got a hostile reception all night from the crowd, who booed James so loud that it drowned out the marching band at halftime.

But when it was over, there were only cheers. The crowd chanted "Ruffin!" in a thank-you to Texas Tech's interim coach who navigated the Red Raiders through a week the school is desperate to forget.
