STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ It's a typical offensive battle between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. OSU Tight end Brandon Pettigrew catches a 55-yard touchdown pass with 1:37 left to give Oklahoma State a 49-45 win over Texas Tech.

OSU wins despite a career-best 646 yards passing from Red Raiders quarterback Graham Harrell. Harrell completed 46 of 67 passes with five touchdowns. OSU moves to 2-2 overall while Texas Tech is 3-1.

The Cowboys did much of their damage on the ground with three rushers surpassing 100 yards for the first time in school history.

Quarterback Zac Robinson ran for 116 yards and two scores and threw for another, while tailbacks Dantrell Savage and Kendall Hunter each added touchdown runs. Savage rushed for 130 yards and Hunter rushed for 113 yards.

OSU finished with 366 yards on the ground.

On the winning play, Pettigrew caught a short pass from Robinson, turned and rumbled down the right sideline before diving across the goal line for the score to put the Cowboys ahead.
