    spot

    Would you please explain the following in red more easily? Especially I'm confused about the meaning of "spotted" there.

    Trailing Minnessota by four touchdowns at halftime, Texas Tech coach Mike Leach told his team it had a chance to make history. The pep talk turned out to be a prediction. The Red Raiders spotted Minnesota a 31-point, third-quarter lead, then rallied for a stunning 44-41 overtime victory in the Insight Bowl Friday night...

    Thank you.

    In this example "spotted" means "unintentionally allowed/permitted" a 31 point lead.
