Current Texas Tech football News
Texas Tech wrapped up a 7-5 regular season with a signature win for Kliff Kingsbury, knocking off Texas 48-45 in Austin on Thanksgiving night.
The final score does not indicate the pace of the entire game. It was scoreless after the first quarter and though the pace picked up before halftime it was the events of the 42-point fourth quarter that will define the 2015 edition of this new Thursday night rivalry. The highlight of the game was Texas Tech's final touchdown, a 40-yard touchdown run from Jakeem Grant on a trick play to push the Red Raiders' lead to 10 points in the final minutes of the game.
Texas Tech lined up tight, simulating the victory formation, and Texas' defense quickly crowded the line of scrimmage. The bunched-up Longhorns were caught way out of position by the time the 5-foot-7, 168-pound Grant picked up the ball from behind the offensive line and starting sprinting down the left sideline.

The name of the play, you ask? According to Kingsbury, "Little People, Big World."
Texas did answer quickly thanks to a nice return from Daje Johnson, a TTU penalty and a Chris Warren touchdown run, but the Red Raiders hung on for the win.
Texas falls to 4-7 on the year heading into next week's finale against Baylor, all but guaranteeing the program's first season without a bowl game since the disastrous 2010 season under Mack Brown.Kliff Kingsbury's trick play resulted in a fourth quarter touchdown against Texas.

What is the all time Texas tech football record?
458-430-32 (as of this past weekend)
Who is the best Texas tech football player ever.
Micheal Crabtree WR won many awards as a freshman and sophomore and will be a top 10 draft pick in the nfl
I have to disagree, Zach Thomas (MLB) probally will go down as the best. My vote goes to E. J. Holub who played both offense (center) and defense (linebacker) and had a 10 year career (1961-1970), all with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was a starting linebacker for the Chiefs in Super Bowl I and starting center in Super Bowl IV.
Honorable mention to tight end/wide receiver Dave Parks who played 10 seasons (1964-1973) with the 49ers, Saints, and Oilers. He ended his career with 360 …
What is Texas Tech's biggest football loss?
I don't know what is their worst ever, but in the 13th of September 1997, Texas had an embarrassing 66 - 3 lost to UCLA. that's the worst that I can remember.
I believe that their worst loss came in 1999, when they lost to Nebraska 56-3. In 1998, they lost to Texas 58-7; in 1986 they lost to Miami (Fla) 61-11. Those, to my knowledge, are the only 50+ point losses by Texas Tech.
Their biggest winning margin was in 1925; they beat Wayland Baptist 120-0. In modern times, they beat Nebraska 70-10 (2004), Northwestern State 75-7 (2007) and S/E Louisiana 62-0 (2006).
