Nebraska and Texas Tech would exchange ugly wins. In 2000, Nebraska beat the Red Raiders, 56-3. Tech must have remembered that, because in 2004, the Red Raiders demolished the Huskers, 70-10. In 2008, Texas Tech was undefeated and riding high. Nebraska came in as the underdog, having been blown out by Missouri the week before. The game would go into overtime. Texas Tech couldn't convert the extra point attempt in overtime, giving the Huskers a chance. Nebraska quarterback, Joe Ganz, went on to throw an interception, ending the game.
This was the first and only (so far) loss in overtime in Nebraska history. In their final meeting in 2009, Tech beat the Huskers in Lincoln, 31-10, due to Nebraska's offensive struggles.
