DOEGE HAS HISTORIC PASSING NIGHT

NOTING THE RED RAIDERS
Junior quarterback Seth Doege threw just his second career interception on Texas Tech's first offensive drive of the game and it was returned 24 yards for a touchdown. The last "pick six" for Texas Tech came in 2009 when Oklahoma State's Patrick Lavine intercepted Stephen Sheffield and returned the ball 21 yards for a touchdown.
Junior Cornelius Douglas put Texas Tech on the scoreboard when he hauled in a 40-yard touchdown reception at the 9:47 mark of the first quarter. The TD reception was his first of the season and just the second of his career.
Senior receiver Tramain Swindall hauled in a 42-yard reception on the final play of the first quarter and that marked his longest reception since the 2009 season.
Freshman running back DeAndre Washington helped give Texas Tech a 14-7 lead over K-State at the 14:46 mark in the second quarter when he scored on a 7-yard touchdown run. Washington's TD run was set up by the 42-yard pass reception by Tramain Swindall.
Aaron Crawford's first touchdown rush of the season came at the 3:55 mark in the second quarter when he scampered 51 yards for the score. The rush is the longest of his career and the longest this season by any Tech player (surpassing Seth Doege's 48-yard rush against Nevada).
Seth Doege's first career rushing touchdown (1-yard) gave Texas Tech a 28-20 lead over Kansas State with 35 seconds remaining in the first half.
Donnie Carona's 47-yard field goal with 2:56 remaining in the third quarter gave Texas Tech a 31-27 lead. After having his first two attempts blocked in the first half, Carona connected on his fourth 40-plus yard field goal of the season.
Texas Tech's first quarter touchdown pass from Seth Doege to Cornelius Douglas ran Texas Tech's streak of consecutive games with a TD reception to 68.
With the Cornelius Douglas TD reception in the first half, Texas Tech has now had nine different receivers catch a TD pass this season.
The Kansas State kickoff return for a TD in the second quarter (100-yard return by Tyler Lockett) marked the second special teams TD that the Red Raiders have given up this season. Texas A&M blocked a field goal and returned it for a TD in last week's game. In 2010, Texas Tech allowed two kickoff returns for touchdown (vs. Iowa State and Baylor).
