Recap


Darrin Moore had 221 receiving yards and one touchdown to help Texas Tech overcome a poor first half and beat Texas State 50-10 on Saturday night in Lubbock, Texas.

Eric Stephens rushed for 118 yards and two second-half touchdowns for the Red Raiders, who trailed 10-9 at halftime and were outgained by the underdog Bobcats in the first half.

Junior quarterback Seth Doege, who entered the game with just 65 career pass attempts, had 326 yards passing and three touchdowns for Texas Tech.

The game turned when Texas State quarterback Shaun Rutherford fumbled at the Tech 17-yard line early in the third quarter to end a promising drive.

Texas Tech promptly drove 84 yards and scored the first of 41 unanswered points on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Doege to Moore to go up 15-10.

Rutherford led Texas State with 82 yards rushing, but he and the other Bobcat quarterbacks couldn’t get anything going through the air, totaling only 75 passing yards.

Texas Tech is now 18-1 in home openers since 1993. Texas State, playing in its final season of FCS football before joining the WAC in 2012, has lost to an FBS school from the state of Texas in each of the past five seasons.
