Throwback Thursday: Texas Tech Upsets No. 1 Texas in 2008

Welcome to our first Throwback Thursday post. It seems only fitting that the first in this series be about undoubtedly the greatest moment in Texas Tech football history-to-date.

It still remains the most famous pass Graham Harrell has ever thrown. Also the most important.

With just seconds left and Tech trailing by a single point, Harrell saw All-American Michael Crabtree streaking up the right sideline and let if fly, despite the double coverage. Crabtree snagged the backshoulder pass, shook off a defender, tip-toed the white line and ducked into the end zone with a second left.

With that 28-yard touchdown capping a 62-yard, last-minute drive, the No. 7 Red Raiders closed out a wild victory, 39-33 against No. 1 Texas.
