Gator Bowl Title Goes To Texas Tech

Alex Trlica booted a 41-yard field goal with 7 seconds left as Texas Tech rallied to beat Virginia 31-28 in the Gator Bowl.

The Red Raiders came back from a 14-point deficit with Graham Harrell completing 44-of-69 passes for 407 yards and three touchdowns.

Texas Tech overcame a tremendous effort by Virginia tailback Mikell Simpson, who ran for 170 yards on 20 carries. One of his runs was an NCAA bowl record 96-yard touchdown scamper. He also hauled in a TD pass.
