Football SUNDAY, September 4, 1994, Longview News-Journal 4C Tech comes back to edge New Mexico LUBBOCk (AP) A pair of redshirt freshmen quarterbacks fueled Texas Tech's comeback from a 17-0 deficit, leading the Red Raiders to a 37-31 victory Saturday over New Mexico. Tony Darden and Zebbie .Lethridge combined for .282 yards in passing in the season opener for both teams. New Mexico's Stoney Case threw for 235 yards. Red Raider defenders kicked in three interceptions and two sacks. Zach Thomas intercepted Case in the third quarter and rave Tech a 17-17 tie with his $5-yard return for a touchdown. But even more spectacular was a 75-yard touchdown run by Damon Burrest, New Mexico's 6-3, 350-pound defensive tackler after the ball fell to the turf when Darden was hit as he tried to pass. The momentum-turning play came as Tech appeared to be tnoving in for another score after rallying from a 17-0 deficit to a 27-17 lead. Instead, the TD run by Burrest, a high school all-America, brought New Mexico to within 27-24. The game wasn't pretty, with a combined 12 turnovers. Furthermore, Tech's mascot, Double T, a jet black quarterhorse, died in the third quarter after spooking during while circling the field after a Tech field goal that gave the Red Raiders a 24-17 lead. The horse bolted across the playing field and into the side of a concrete ramp, dying instantly. New Mexico flubbed its 17-0 lead with defense that weakened as the game wore on. Tech had sputtered to a penalty-riddled start marred by fumbles on four consecutive possessions. The first fumble Matt DuBuc's dropped punt return with 2:56 remaining in the first quarter set up a touchdown run by Eric-Young, It wasa two-play, 12-second drive. . Gavin Pearlman then reached over Cat Adams to catch a 39-yard bomb for the 17-0 lead.

Razorbacks hog-tie Mustangs in opener LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Quarterback Barry Lunney Jr., named the starter hours before kickoiT, threw two touchdown E asses to J, J. Meadors and tail-ack Oscar Malone ran for 151 yards on 19 carries as Arkansas beat Southern Methodist 34-14 on Saturday. Lunney's 79-yard scoring pass to Meadors midway through the fourth quarter put Arkansas up by 14 points. Until then, the Mustangs had remained close behind the play of Ramon Flanigan. On the second-down pass, Lunney faked into the line and calmly waited for Meadors to run by the secondary inside the SMU 45. Lunney was 10-of-12 for 203 yards and also ran for 61 yards. Coach Danny Ford had been tight-lipped about the quarterback job, even joking that he would play Lunney, Mike Cher-rjv Jason Allen and - Robert Reed a quarter each. Lunney has started every game since the middle of 1992, but he passed up spring practice to play baseball and Cherry moved to the top of the depth chart. Lunney threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Meadors for a 14-point lead in the third quarter, but Flanigan ran 14 yards for a TD that cut it to 21-14. Flanigan also took SMU 92 yards for a touchdown late in the first half, his 13-yard pass to Mick Rossley ending that drive. The Razorbacks' first touchdown came after SMU freshman Anthony Scotti, punting from his end zone, bobbled the snap and Marcus Adair partially blocked the kick. On first down from the 21, Lunney made a quick read on the option and pitched to Marius Johnson who got a nice block on his way to the end zone. The Razorbacks' second touchdown drive began after DeiDelcareturn tion 19 yards to the Arkansas 37. The Razorbacks overcame a holding penalty and made a first down on fourth. No. 18 North Carolina survives turnovers to upend TCU, 27-17 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Jason Stanicek had 244 yards of offense in the first half and No. 18 North Carolina overcame four turnovers and a blocked field goal to down Texas Christian 27-17 Saturday night. Stanicek passed for 179 yards and rushed for 65 as the Tar Heels built a 10-point halftime lead. But the heavy favorites, playing without four injured starters, nearly gave the game away in the second half before securing their sixth straight season-opening victory. Stanicek, who finished with 230 yards passing and 80 yards rushing, was intercepted twice in the second half and a fumble by Curtis Johnson .'produced only three points for TCU despite .'great field position. . . The Horned Frogs, who had 19 starters back lifrom a club that was 4-7 last season, also iblocked a 34-yard field goal attempt early in the ; ;fourth quarter to stay within 24-17. ' But a key third-down sack by Oscar Sturgis lafter the block put TCU out of scoring range, !;and Stanicek engineered a six-minute scoring ''drive late in the fourth quarter. Stanicek's 17-yard completion and 23-yard run helped set up Tripp Pignetti's field goal with 1:28 left. The Tar Heels, favored by three touchdowns, twice fell behind in the first quarter. A 42-yard pass from Max Knake to Derrick Cullors set up a 1-yard scoring run by Koi Woods 2:35 into the game. . North Carolina tied the score 7-7 on its opening possession of the season with a 2-yard TD run by Curtis Johnson. The Horned Frogs then capitalized on Leon Johnson's fumble. Cullors had runs of 27 and 14 yards after the North Carolina turnover before Knake found fullback Matt Moore oyer the middle for a 14-yard scoring play. On the next series, Stanicek's 19-yard completion to Greg DeLong, who returned from knee surgery last season, and 16-yard run set up Leon Johnson's game-tying score on a fourth-and-goal play from the 1. The loss of middle guard Brian Brooks to a broken leg midway through the first quarter seemed to take a toll on the TCU defense. Baylor hammers La.
