WATCH: Texas WR draws Michael Crabtree with game-winning TD vs. Texas Tech, 10 years later

Ten years after the Texas Tech Wide recipient, Michael Crabtree ripped the hearts from then-no. 1 Texas, it's a form of irony that No. 19 Longhorns got revenge on a similar result on Saturday. Texas wideout Lil Jordan Jordan Humphrey entered a 29-yard forward touchdown with just 29 seconds remaining to give Horns a 41-34 win. While the pass, catch and touchdown were not exactly the same as Crabtree's, the way the gig was developed and the end result was incredibly similar. Here is Humphrey's catch … Compare now that catch with Crabtrees 1 0 years ago … Same end zone, same distance (1 yard apart), although Crabtree was double-coated. Still. Here's another, even better look at Humphrey's catch. Humphrey has been a monster for Longhorns this season, and led the team with 159 meters and two touchdowns against Red Raiders. He mostly remembers the above-mentioned go-ahead catch, but he made great grip all night. Humphrey's go-ahead score capped by a regular fourth quarter that scored 24 points in the last seven minutes. Texas has been a generally bad fourth quarter, and Texas Tech came back from a 27-10 deficit to outdo Horns 24-14 in the last 15 minutes. Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury even went boldly and performed a perfect deployment park to steal a possession from Texas. Red Raiders tied the match at 34 with 1:45 left, capping off a 17-0 run. But leaving Texas with enough time to run down the field with quarterback Sam Ehlinger picks…

Ten years after the Texas Tech Wide recipient, Michael Crabtree ripped the hearts from then-no. 1 Texas, it’s a form of irony that No. 19 Longhorns got revenge on a similar result on Saturday. Texas wideout Lil Jordan Jordan Humphrey entered a 29-yard forward touchdown with just 29 seconds remaining to give Horns a 41-34 win.

While the pass, catch and touchdown were not exactly the same as Crabtree’s, the way the gig was developed and the end result was incredibly similar. Here is Humphrey’s catch …

Same end zone, same distance (1 yard apart), although Crabtree was double-coated. Still. Here’s another, even better look at Humphrey’s catch.

Humphrey has been a monster for Longhorns this season, and led the team with 159 meters and two touchdowns against Red Raiders. He mostly remembers the above-mentioned go-ahead catch, but he made great grip all night.

Humphrey’s go-ahead score capped by a regular fourth quarter that scored 24 points in the last seven minutes. Texas has been a generally bad fourth quarter, and Texas Tech came back from a 27-10 deficit to outdo Horns 24-14 in the last 15 minutes. Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury even went boldly and performed a perfect deployment park to steal a possession from Texas. Red Raiders tied the match at 34 with 1:45 left, capping off a 17-0 run.

But leaving Texas with enough time to run down the field with quarterback Sam Ehlinger picks up a lot of feet with his legs.

This is the second emotional end of both teams for so many weeks. Texas Tech has now lost back-to-back heartbreakers to Oklahoma and Texas. The Longhorns, fresh terrific loss for West Virginia in the last seconds, has a crucial home game against Iowa State in week 12. It is a game that still has Big 12 Championship Game race implications.
