Jakeem Grant Sets Texas Tech School Record and Scores Unlikely Touchdowns Against Texas
Texas Tech senior wide receiver Jakeem Grant had a night he'll remember in Thursday's game against the Texas Longhorns.
In the 4th quarter, Grant set a school record for career receiving yards, surpassing Michael Crabtree.
He also scored two unlikely touchdowns, the first the second quarter and the second in the fourth quarter.
Grant's second touchdown of the night came late in the fourth quarter. Texas Tech was up three points, 41-38, and had just forced a turnover on downs. In a play Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury called, "Little People, Big World", Grant hid behind the offensive line and took a misdirection handoff 40 yards downfield for a touchdown.
The Red Raiders went on to win 48-45, their first win in Austin since 1997.
