Texas Tech stuns No. 5 West Virginia 49-14

Posted:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Seth Doege passed for six touchdowns and a season-high 499 yards as Texas Tech shocked No. 5 West Virginia 49-14, ending the Mountaineers' hopes for an unbeaten season.

The Red Raiders fans stormed the field after the win, the most lopsided Texas Tech victory ever over a team ranked in the top five.

Texas Tech's defense consistently stymied West Virginia's offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Geno Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards.

The Red Raiders offense had no trouble moving the ball as Doege threw TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards. He completed 32 of 42 passes and the six touchdowns matched his career-high. Darrin Moore caught three touchdown passes.

Texas Tech (5-1, 2-1) had 18 plays of 15 yards or more, including a 61-yard pass to Jace Amaro and a 53-yard touchdown run by SaDale Foster.

Amaro finished with five receptions for 156 yards.
