  • Senior wide receiver Nehemiah Glover helped set up Tech's first touchdown of the game with a 58-yard reception that moved Tech to the Texas three-yard line. The reception was his longest since the 2003 season when he hauled in a 59-yard pass against Baylor.
  • Quarterback Sonny Cumbie's one-yard touchdown rush at the 10-minute mark in the second quarter was his second of the season (last against New Mexico on Sept. 11).
  • With 7:23 remaining in the fourth quarter, senior inside receiver Trey Haverty scored his second touchdown of the season, as the first came at Kansas. The touchdown marked the third of his career.
  • Senior inside receiver Nehemiah Glover finished the game with 11 catches for 166 yards. Last year against Texas, he registered four catches for 105 yards. So in the previous two games against the Longhorns, Glover has averaged 135.5 yards receiving.
