  Jonathan Garibay was trying kicks beyond midfield before Texas Tech's game against Iowa State, but told coaches his range wasn't quite that far. They sent him out for one from the other side of the 50 anyway. Garibay kicked a 62-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Red Raiders to a 41-38 victory over Iowa State on Saturday after they squandered a 17-point lead in the second half. Garibay sprinted across the field with his helmet off as fans stormed the field to celebrate the walk-off win after the longest field goal in FBS this season, surpassing a 60-yarder by Oregon State's Everett Hayes last week. The senior from California broke the Texas Tech record of 57 yards by Blade Adams against Texas A&M in 1977. The Cyclones had pulled even on Andrew Mevis' 29-yard kick with a minute remaining before redshirt freshman Donovan Smith, making his first career start, got the Red Raiders just far enough to set up Garibay, whose previous career long at Texas Tech was 48 yards.

Garibay has made 12 of 12 field goals this season. "When you get to a distance that far, it's really hard to give it that nice height," Garibay said. "You've kind of got to drive it. I thought the wind's not blowing, don't try to kill this ball. I've got to hit a clean ball and hopefully it goes all the way." The Red Raiders (6-4, 3-4 Big 12) won for the first time under interim coach Sonny Cumbie in his second game. Texas Tech earned bowl eligibility for the first time since 2017 the same week Joey McGuire was named to replace Matt Wells, who was fired in the middle of his third season. Breece Hall had three touchdowns, including two on the ground to extend his Iowa State and Big 12 records to 22 consecutive games with a rushing TD. But the Cyclones (6-4, 4-3) lost any realistic chance of playing in the Big 12 championship game after starting the season in the top 10. - Texas Tech/AP College Football
