Associated Press

HOUSTON (AP) -- Graham Harrell threw a personal best six touchdown passes, three to freshman Michael Crabtree, and Texas Tech scored 35 unanswered points for a 59-24 victory over the Rice Owls Saturday in a battle of former Southwest Conference rivals.

The Red Raiders (3-0) beat their third straight Conference USA opponent. Rice dropped to 0-3. The two teams last played in 1995 when both were in the SWC.

Crabtree, in just his third college game, has eight touchdowns. He caught 11 passes for 244 yards against the Owls and had touchdown catches of 74, 9 and 25 yards. Crabtree has gained at least 150 yards in receptions in all three games this season. Harrell completed 28-of-37 passes for 414 yards.

Harrell got the Raiders off to a quick 14-0 first quarter lead with touchdown passes of 11 yards to Shannon Woods and 38 yards to Grant Walker.

Rice battled for a while in the first half. Clark Fangmeier kicked a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter and Chase Clements had second quarter touchdown passes of 13 yards to Toren Dixon and 47 yards to Jarett Dillard. Woods also scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter.

Leading 21-17 midway in the second quarter, Harrell took the Raiders to five straight scores starting with Crabtree's 74-yard pass-run play. Harrell then threw touchdown passes of 10 yards to Eric Morris and 9 yards to Crabtree. Kobey Lewis scored on a 1-yard run and Crabtree caught a 25-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

C.J. Ugokwe broke Tech's 35-point run with a 7-yard touchdown run with 10:18 to play. Alex Trlica kicked a 39-yard field goal with 5:12 to play.

Clement completed 20-of-37 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns. He had one intercepted.
