Another Record Effort by Symons

September 28, 2003|From Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — B.J. Symons threw for 661 yards -- a school and Big 12 record -- and six touchdowns as Texas Tech beat Mississippi, 49-45, Saturday night.

Symons, who set both passing records last Saturday against North Carolina State when he threw for 586 yards in a loss, had a nine-yard touchdown pass to Carlos Francis with 1:04 left to give Texas Tech (3-1) the victory.

Symons was 44 for 64 in getting the third-most passing yardage in Division I-A history behind the 716 by Houston's David Klingler and 690 by TCU's Matt Vogler, both in 1990.

Ole Miss (2-2) had one last shot to win, but Eli Manning's pass was intercepted near the Texas Tech goal line.
