Texas Upends No. 20 Texas Tech 31-22, 3 TDs

Updated: Sunday, November 4 2012, 03:32 PM CST
David Ash threw for three touchdowns and 264 yards to lead Texas to a 31-22 victory against No. 20 Texas Tech on Saturday.

Mike
Davis had a career-high 165 yards and a career-best two touchdowns on
four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the
Longhorns (7-2, 4-2 Big 12). It was the third straight win for the
Longhorns and keeps them alive in the Big 12 race.

Seth Doege completed 26 of 44 passes for 329 yards for one touchdown for Texas tech (6-3, 3-3).

Freshman Johnathan Gray got his second straight 100-yard rushing game for Texas, with 106 yards on 20 carries.

Penalties hurt Texas Tech, including a touchdown being called back in the fourth quarter for holding.

Once in the red zone, the Red Raiders had trouble getting touchdowns. They settled for field goals tries four times.

Ash
found Davis twice for big gains in the first half, once on a deep post
route for a 54-yard gain to the Red Raiders 2. Joe Bergeron scored on
the next play from 2 yards out to put the Longhorrns up 14-7.

On
the first play of the `Horns next possession, Ash hit Davis again on a
deep route over the middle and he ran it in for a 75-yard touchdown to
put Texas up 21-10.

Texas Tech was down three
defensive backs to injuries - Cornelius Douglas, Tre' Porter and Jarvis
Phillips - and Ash didn't let up on their backups. He completed 11 of 19
passes.

Ash had better numbers than Doege
going into halftime. He was averaging 22. 7 yards per pass attempt. It
was a huge improvement his numbers in the Longhorns 21-17 comeback win
at Kansas last week. His per-attempt average then was 3.9 yards.

Down
31-22 the Red Raiders looked like they scored a touchdown when Kenny
Williams ran it in from the 2. But offensive lineman Deveric Gallington
was called for holding and the score didn't count.

The
Longhorns kept Texas Tech from getting a first down and Carrington
Byndom blocked Ryan Bustin's 23-yard field goal try to seal the win for
Texas.

Texas Tech scored late in the third
quarter to make it 24-22 after going for it on fourth-and-1 from UT's
32. Eric Stephens took the snap as the wildcat and ran toward the near
side of the field and handed the ball off to SaDale Foster who went
around end on the other side of the line, picking up 15 yards to the
Texas 17.

The Red Raiders went for 2 but Byndom broke up Doege's fade pass to the corner of the end zone intended for Marcus Kennard.

The
Red Raiders offense sputtered in red zone offense throughout the game.
In their first possession of the second half they got the ball down to
UT's 15-yard line but came away with a field goal to pull within 24-16

Twice
in the first half they had to settle for field goals after moving the
ball inside Texas' 20-yard line. Before Ryan Bustin hit a 41-yard field
goal in the second quarter to pull the Red Raiders within 14-10 they
would have had a second-and-1 from near the 5. Instead, Le'Raven Clark
got called for an illegal block and Texas Tech faced a first-and-30 from
UT's 35.
