Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell tonight has a reason to boast: He now has thrown more touchdown passes than anyone in major-college history.

Harrell tied, then broke, the record with two scoring passes in a 47-34 Cotton Bowl loss to Mississippi. The record-setting 132nd touchdown pass was a two-yard slant to Michael Crabtree early in the second quarter. Colt Brennan had held the record. Brennan, who starred for Hawaii, had 131 from 2005 to 2007.


Harrell passed for 364 yards -- a Cotton Bowl record -- and finished his collegiate career with 5,111 yards passing and 134 TDs.
