Texas Tech 41, Kansas 34 (2 OT)

The SportsXchange

LUBBOCK, Texas -- With the wind gusting more than 30 mph and dust blowing in the West Texas sky, it was a day to hang on.

That's just what No. 22 Texas Tech did.

Red Raider running back Eric Stephens threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Darrin Moore in the second overtime and Texas Tech held Kansas out of the end zone to grasp a 41-34 victory at Jones AT&T Stadium.

Kansas, which erased a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, had one last chance to tie trailing by seven in double overtime. But Texas Tech defensive back D.J. Johnson broke up quarterback Michael Cummings' pass in the end zone on fourth-and-9 from the Texas Tech 24.

The loss meant Kansas (1-9, 0-7 Big 12) extended its Big 12 losing streak to 19 games dating back to the 2010 season.

The Red Raiders (7-3, 4-3) did just enough to snap a two-game losing streak of their own.

After Kansas scored first in overtime to take a 34-27 lead, the Red Raiders tied it when quarterback Seth Doege threw a 24-yard strike to Eric Ward on third-and-10 from the 25. Stephens dived into the end zone on the next play and kicker Ryan Bustin, who missed a 41-yard field goal into the wind at the end of regulation, hit the extra point to send the game to double overtime.

Texas Tech seemed ready to take command on the first play of the second quarter when the Red Raiders grabbed the lead on Doege's 16-yard touchdown pass to Tyson Williams.

The Red Raiders boosted the advantage to 21-7 on their next possession when Doege threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Darrin Moore.

And Texas Tech was driving again, moving out from its 6 to its 43 before Brad McDougal intercepted Doege's pass and returned it to the Red Raiders' 29.

An illegal block backed up the Jayhawks, but they still turned the takeaway into points.

Cummings threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Bourbon that cut Texas Tech's lead in half, 21-14, with 5:30 remaining in the first half.

Following Doege's interception, the Red Raiders appeared to play it safe on their next drive and promptly went three-and-out, giving the Jayhawks an opportunity to tie before the half.

Kansas responded with a 65-yard drive to the Texas Tech 5, utilizing the option for the first time in the contest. Jayhawks running back Tony Pierson ran twice for 59 yards, both on option pitches.

But the drive stalled at the 5 and Kansas settled for Nick Prolago's 22-yard field goal that cut the Red Raiders' lead to four points at halftime.

Bustin kicked a pair of field goals in the second half to extend the lead to 10 points before Kansas surged back.

Pierson busted a 69-yard run to the Texas Tech 3 and fellow Jayhawks back James Sims plunged over the goal line two plays later to cut the Red Raiders' lead to 3.

Then Cummings kept on an option on fourth-and-3 from his 36 and gained 44 yards to the Texas Tech 20. That helped set up Prolago's 32-yard field goal that tied the game at 27.

NOTES: Texas Tech assured itself of its 17th winning campaign in the last 18 seasons. The Red Raiders finished 5-7 in 2011, their first losing season since 1992 (Texas Tech went 6-6 in 1993 and 1994). ... Doege moved past predecessor Taylor Potts into third in school history with 63 career touchdown passes.
