Turnovers Doom Texas Tech in Loss to Kansas State

The Kansas State Wildcats (6-0, 3-0)  continued their undefeated season with a 41-34 win over Texas Tech (4-2, 1-2) at Jones AT&T Stadium.

Miscues hounded the Red Raiders all game as quarterback Seth Doege turned the ball over four times with a fumble and three interceptions. The Red Raider special teams had two field goal attempts blocked and allowed a kickoff return for a touchdown.

Kansas State jumped out to an early lead within the first minute of the game as Nigel Malone intercepted a Doege pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown.

The score was tied at 7 after the first quarter and a wild second quarter saw five touchdowns scored with Tech taking a 28-20 lead at the half.

The third quarter went the Wildcats way as they scored two touchdowns and the Red Raiders could only muster a field goal.

The fourth quarter was disastrous for Texas Tech offensively.  The first drive of the quarter, coming off of a Kansas State touchdown, ended in a Seth Doege fumble.  Kansas State is held to no points as they’re stopped on a 4th and 5 at the Tech 29.  Then, on the very next play Seth Doege is intercepted by Tysyn Hartman.

The Wildcats needed just 3 plays to convert Hartman’s pick into a touchdown with a Collin Klein 1-yard run. With the extra point the score became 41-31 Kansas State.

On the Red Raiders next drive, a Seth Doege pass gets intercepted for the second time in the quarter.  Tech added a field goal at the 2:32 mark and it was the final score of the game.

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was 12/18 passing for 146 yards and 1 touchdown. Klein on the ground rushed for 110 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege finished the game 43/63 passing for 461 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions.

Texas Tech next week is on the road at Oklahoma. The game will kickoff at 7 o’clock on ABC.
