Same place, Same end zone. Ten years later.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but with the game on the line, a wide receiver made a huge play in Lubbock to win the game with the clock ticking down.

Same end zone. Same sideline.

On Saturday, ten years after Texas Tech Red Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s iconic catch against the Texas Longhorns, it was a Longhorns wide receiver making the play, as sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger delivered a strike to junior Lil’Jordan Humphrey, who climbed the ladder to make an incredible catch:

Of course, there weren’t any national championship implications for either team tonight, but it was a huge win for the Longhorns after giving up another late lead and coming off of two losses.

And the similarities were absolute uncanny.

What a throw. What a catch. What a game. What a win.

Enjoy it.

Because somewhere, Crabtree is not.
