2-1, 5th in Big 12

Pretty standard night for Patrick Mahomes: 507 total yards and 6 TDs in Texas Tech's 59-45 win over Louisiana Tech. Still a ton of work to be done on defense after giving up 572 yards, but Tech's offense controlled the ballgame.

Just another typical day for Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes: 18-of-24 passing for 333 yards and four touchdowns. Oh, wait, it's only halftime. Red Raiders up 35-17 on Louisiana Tech. Mahomes has thrown for 300+ for the 16th time in his career.

Some SportsCenter Top 10-caliber trickery from Texas Tech: a double-reverse with a flip back to QB Patrick Mahomes, who hit Jonathan Giles on a screen pass. Giles cut through Louisiana Tech's defense for a 42-yard TD, his third of the night, to extend the lead to 35-10.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas Tech coaches predicted Jonathan Giles might be their leading receiver by the end of the season. He's looking like it tonight: 3 catches, 109 yards and 2 TDs for a 21-3 first-quarter lead over Louisiana Tech.

No shocker that Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury came away impressed with Arizona State running back Kalen Ballage, who equaled the NCAA record with eight touchdowns (on 15 touches) Saturday against the Red Raiders: "He looked really good -- big, fast, explosive. Seeing him live and in person, he was big and he can really run." Ballage has rushed for more touchdowns this season than all but 10 FBS teams, not including national-leader ASU.
