LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech coach Spike Dykes announced his retirement Saturday, shortly after the Red Raiders rallied to beat Oklahoma 38-28.

Kliff Kingsbury threw for 259 yards and three touchdowns and linebacker Kyle Shipley forced a fumble that led to a touchdown for Texas Tech (6-5, 5-3 Big 12).

Dykes joined the school in 1984 and led the Red Raiders to a 82-67-1 record. Under him, they gained notoriety for upsetting rivals Texas and Texas A&M.

With 7:20 left in the third and Oklahoma leading 21-16, Shipley rammed into quarterback Josh Heupel at the Sooners 25 and the ball went bouncing backward.

Several players on both teams tried to pounce on the ball, until Tech's Kevin Curtis finally recovered it at the Oklahoma 1. A quarterback sneak by Kingsbury gave Tech a 24-21 lead with 4:39 left in the third.

Then, after a short drive by Oklahoma, Kingsbury threw a 67-yard touchdown bomb to Sammy Morris on the first play of the Red Raiders' drive to make the score 31-21 with 4:39 left in the third.

Tech sealed the victory with an 8-play, 40-yard drive that culminated in an 18-yard touchdown pass from Kingsbury to Tim Baker with 3:54 left.

Oklahoma (6-4, 4-3) scored again after a quick drive led to a 1-yard touchdown run by Josh Norman with 1:39 left, but the Sooners were too far behind for the score to matter.

Kingsbury zipped a 32-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Morris to give Tech a 7-0 lead only 57 seconds into the first quarter.

One series later, Kingsbury nailed Tim Winn with a 75-yard pass to put Tech at the 4. Oklahoma's defense held and Tech's Chris Birkholz nailed a 29-yard field goal to make it 10-0, with 8:54 left in the first.
