Raiders Shock Aggies 48 - 47 in OT

Kliff Kingsbury threw his fifth touchdown pass in OT and Robert Treece followed with the game-winning extra point as Texas Tech rallied from an 18 point deficit to beat #23 Texas A&M 48 - 47 on Saturday. The Aggies' loss spoiled a stellar performance by quarterback Dustin Long, who threw seven TD passes to set a Big XII record that was set at six TD passes last week by Kingsbury.

Long's last score was a three yard strike to Terrence Thomas in the extra period that put Texas A&M ahead 47 - 41. But John Pierce missed the extra point -- his second one of the game -- to leave the door open for the Red Raiders (4 - 2).

The Big XII opener for both teams turned into a quarterback duel as Kingsbury completed 48 of 58 passes for 468 yards. He hit Nehemiah Glover for a 10 yard touchdown on Tech's overtime possession. In addition to his critical extra point, Treece kicked two 42 yard field goals, the second of which forced overtime.

The Red Raiders were trailing 35 - 17 with 6:57 left in the third quarter after Long threw his fifth touchdown pass, an 82 yarder to Jamaar Taylor. Kingsbury then rallied the Red Raiders with a 21 yard TD pass to Wes Welker and a 15 yarder to Taurean Henderson to pull Tech to 35 - 30 with 6:38 left to play.

Welker then gave Texas Tech its first lead of the game with an 88 yard punt return for a touchdown with 2:48 left to play, and Kingsbury completed a two point conversion pass to Anton Paige for a 38 - 35 lead. Long got the lead back for the Aggies with a 9 yard TD pass to Greg Porter with 1:40 to play. Pierce missed the extra point, leaving the Aggies with a 41 - 38 lead, allowing the Raiders to come back and force the overtime on Treece's second field goal.

The Aggies jumped ahead quickly with Long's 78 yard touchdown pass to Bethel Johnson on A&M's first offensive play of the game. Long also had first half TD passes of four yards to Greg Porter, nine yards to Terrence Murphy, and 15 yards to Johnson for a 28 - 17 halftime lead.

Kingsbury completed 26 of 29 passes in the first half and had touchdown passes of four yards to Anton Paige and two yards to Carlos Francis. Derek Farmer got his second straight 100 yard performance with 113 yards on 24 carries for the Aggies.

Texas Tech has won six of the last eight games between the two schools.
