SMU's Szymanski shows off big leg

LUBBOCK, Texas -- SMU coach June Jones drew at least a few quizzical looks by sending out his field goal unit to attempt a 61-yarder. But Mustangs kicker Matt Szymanski made the kick -- the longest in school history -- besting his previous long of 53 yards in last year's season opener.

But it's still not enough to get SMU back into contention. Texas Tech took over possession after the kick with a 35-20 lead.
