Today's Throwback Thursday throws us all the way back to the 2007 season, as the Graham Harrell lead Red Raiders faced off against Texas A&M in Lubbock.
A&M came to town sitting at 5-1 and riding high. In fact, Aggie running back Javorskie Lane told reporters earlier in the week that he guaranteed a win for the boys in maroon.
A&M scored first, and it looked like his prediction might come true, as Lane scored on a 1 yard run early in the 1st quarter. However, this was the last time A&M would get the ball in the endzone that day.
Texas Tech got on the board in the 2nd on a 12 yard pass from Harrell to Eric Morris to tie things up at 7-7. Tech would then follow with a 28 yard touchdown pass from Harrell to Ed Britton and a 1 yard rush from Shannon Woods to take a 21-7 lead into halftime.
The Red Raiders, with a comfortable lead, would then go on to score twice in the second half before cruising to a 35-7 win.
Tech easily beat A& to improve to 6-1 on the season.
Graham Harrell finished 30 of 37 for 425 yards and 3 touchdowns, and superstar receiver Michael Crabtree was the leading receiver, grabbing 8 catches for 170 yards.
The Red Raider defense, under the new guidance of Ruffin McNeil, held A&M to 306 total yards and only 1 touchdown.
Tech would eventually finish the year 8-4 and beat Virginia in the Gator Bowl.
