Friday, January 2, 2009. (AP) -- Texas Tech's Graham Harrell has thrown more touchdown passes than anyone in major college history.

Harrell tied, then broke the record Friday with two scoring passes in the Cotton Bowl against Mississippi. The record-setting 132nd touchdown pass was a 2-yard slant to star receiver Michael Crabtree early in the second quarter. Harrell passed the record held by Colt Brennan of Hawaii, who had 131 from 2005-07.

Harrell, playing his final game for Texas Tech, also was close to becoming the first player in NCAA history to throw for 5,000 yards in multiple seasons.
