Seth Doege was just behind him going 21-37 for 255 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Red Raiders had 143 yards on the ground and just two rushing touchdowns--both coming from senior Aaron Crawford.
Ronnie Daniels led all rushers with 10 attempts for 43 yards.

Texas Tech has run 31 plays on the ground for a total of 109 yards, averaging of just over 3 yards per-run.
