JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Texas Tech didn't score 40 or more points, as it had all season. Through three quarters, the nation's top passing offense couldn't score much at all.
But Graham Harrell stayed with it, finishing 44-of-69 for 407
yards and three TDs, and the Red Raiders scored just enough to
overcome a 14-point deficit and stun Number 21 Virginia 31-28 on a
late field goal in the Gator Bowl today.
Alex Trlica hit from 41 yards, despite swirling wind, with 7
seconds remaining. It was the third game-winner of the senior
kicker's career, and came at an appropriate time: Earlier in the
game, Trlica became the first kicker in school history to score at
least 100 points in a season.
