Tech Rumbles Past the OSU Cowboys

Tech had another good night, this time against the number 8 Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Cowboys made the first touchdown of the night, but Tech scored shortly after--and never looked back.

From the Tech Athletics website:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Around the time Michael Crabtree caught his second touchdown and stood in the back of the end zone staring at the crowd -- or maybe when he celebrated his third score with a high-flying chest bump into Graham Harrell -- the questions about Texas Tech vanished.

That victory over then-No. 1 Texas was no emotion-fueled fluke.

The No. 2 Red Raiders truly are one of the best teams in the country.

Harrell and Crabtree picked up right where they left off against the Longhorns, leading Texas Tech to touchdowns on seven straight possessions on the way to trashing No. 8 Oklahoma State 56-20 Saturday night and solidifying an inside track to the national championship game.

"I feel like every week we have something to prove," Crabtree said. "We really don't too much worry about what other people think. We worry about what we can control, and that's us, and that's our team."

Now that the Red Raiders have gotten by two straight top-10 foes, one more awaits: No. 6 Oklahoma. In Norman.

Quarterback Graham Harrell complete 40 of 50 passes for 456 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Way to go Red Raiders!
