LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Graham Harrell threw for 484 yards and four touchdowns as Texas Tech came from behind to beat UTEP 45-31 in the Red Raiders' home opener Saturday.
It wasn't as big a comeback as Tech's history-making Insight Bowl rally in December. The Red Raiders trailed 28-17 at the half before Harrell and his receivers found their groove.
UTEP tied it on a 25-yard field goal at the end of the third quarter.
Tech (2-0) answered quickly -- in 89 seconds -- with a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive. Harrell found Grant Walker wide open in the corner of the end zone to give the Red Raiders a 38-31 lead.
Shannon Woods capped off the rally with a 2-yard touchdown run to make it 45-31 midway through the fourth quarter and put the game out of reach for the Miners (1-1).
Harrell, who completed 48 of 64 passes, posted his career high in completions for the second straight game. He had 44 last week in Tech's 49-9 win over SMU. The junior quarterback had one interception.
Crabtree had his second consecutive 100-yard receiving game, finishing with 15 catches for 188 yards and two touchdowns. Last week he caught 12 for 106 and three TDS.
