Texas Tech scored a pair of touchdowns in a 51-second span of the opening four and a half minutes of the game, and the Red Raiders coasted to a 58-10 victory over new-kid-on-the-block Texas State on Saturday night.

Seth Doege passed for 319 yards and a career-tying five touchdowns by completing 25-of-32 for Tech (2-0) in less than three quarters of work.

He threw two TDs in the first quarter, his first coming less than a minute after the Tech defense opened the scoring on Cody Davis' 88-yard interception return.

Facing a Big 12 school on home turf for the first time, the Bobcats (1-1) fell behind 28-0 and didn't score until starting quarterback Shaun Rutherford was pulled and backup Tyler Arndt threw a 25-yard TD pass to Terrence Franks with less than 11 minutes left in the first half.
