Big 12: Tech edges Oklahoma with no time on clock
Published November 20, 2005
LUBBOCK, Texas - Taurean Henderson scored on a 2-yard run as time expired to lift No.21 Texas Tech over Oklahoma 23-21 on Saturday, ending a five-game losing streak in the series.
"I was very confident. You never know, though. I was a little nervous, too," he said of waiting for the replay review. "I started out to score the touchdown, got hit, was laying on top of someone and just stretched out."
Multiple angles, including one from above the end zone, were inconclusive, and there were no angles from the far side of field, where the official made the call.
"I didn't see it, and I'm not going to sit here and criticize," Sooners coach Bob Stoops said. "We have a system in place, and you hope that it works and it makes the calls that are correct."
After the touchdown, stadium officials took down the goal posts to prevent fans from ripping them down. But officials ordered them raised for the extra point, which could have been returned for two points. Tech snapped the ball but did not try to score.
Oklahoma, which trailed 17-7 early in the fourth, took the lead with 1:33 left on a 13-yard run by Adrian Peterson, who ran for 108 yards and two touchdowns.
Tech got the ball back at its 35 with 1:33 left and no timeouts. Cody Hodges completed passes of 26 and 7 yards to Robert Johnson and 18 to Danny Amendola to reach the 5 with 13 seconds left. Pass interference two plays later moved the ball to the 2, but Hodges then threw incomplete, leaving two seconds.
"(Henderson) leads the conference in all-purpose yards," Tech coach Mike Leach said. "And he proved he could get 2 all-purpose yards at a key time."
KANSAS ST. 36, MISSOURI 28: The host Wildcats rallied in Bill Snyder's final game as coach. Kansas State hasn't lost to the Tigers since 1992.
Victor Mann's 23-yard run midway through the third pulled the Wildcats to 28-21. Two series later, quarterback Allen Webb fumbled at the Missouri 1. But Tony Temple was tackled in the end zone for a safety on the next play. On the ensuing drive, Webb hit Jordy Nelson for a 10-yard touchdown on fourth and 5.
The two-point conversion failed, leaving it 29-28, and the Tigers took over at their 19 with 2:08 left. Three plays later, under heavy pressure, Brad Smith threw straight to linebacker Brandon Archer, who returned it 45 yards for a touchdown.
BAYLOR 44, OKLAHOMA ST. 34: Paul Mosley scored on three 1-yard runs for the host Bears, who won two conference games for the first time since the inception in 1996. The five wins are the most since seven in 1995.
Mosley's third score, which made it 28-0 early in the second quarter, came one play after Jamaal Harper's 15-yard interception return. Daniel McLemore's 95-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff was negated by a hold. On the next play, Colin Allred returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown.
