Doege leads Tech in rout of UNM

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Seth Doege threw for 401 yards and five touchdowns to lead Texas Tech to a 59-13 victory against New Mexico on Saturday.

Doege tied a school record by completing his first 15 passes en route to finishing 40 for 44 -- a 90.9 completion percentage, a national record for quarterbacks with at least 40 completions.

"It's a tribute to the entire offense," Doege said. "The receivers caught some balls that probably shouldn't have been caught.

"I think I got hit one time, and that was my own fault because I called out the wrong blocking assignment."

Darrin Moore caught nine passes for 118 yards and three touchdowns for the Red Raiders (2-0). Eric Ward had two TD receptions.

Deon Long had three catches for 139 yards for the Lobos (0-3), including a 69-yarder to set up their only touchdown. New Mexico has been outscored 127-26 this season.

Texas Tech amassed 624 yards of offense.

Two lightning delays postponed the game a total of 95 minutes.

The Red Raiders built a 28-0 first-half lead behind Doege's hot hand. After his first incompletion, he connected on his next seven passes.

"It's pretty wild for an offense to be on like that," Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said. "It all started with protection. He got hit quite a bit in the first game, but I don't think he got hit much today.

"When you are as proficient as we were today, it makes it easier on everybody."
