Seth Doege tossed three touchdown passes and Texas Tech held off host Iowa State 24-13 on Saturday night in the Big 12 opener for both teams.
Doege threw for 331 yards to lead the unbeaten Red Raiders (4-0, 1-0), who held Iowa State to just 189 yards of offense.
Doege's 19-yard TD pass to Eric Ward put Tech up 21-13 with 10:36 left, and Ryan Bustin added a 39-yard field goal with 2:20 to go.
James White had 57 yards rushing for the Cyclones (3-1, 0-1). Iowa State's Steele Jantz had one of the worst nights of his career, throwing for just 73 yards on 10 of 20 passing to go with three interceptions and a fumble.
The win erases a two year losing skid to the Cyclones. It's also the Red Raiders first conference win since upsetting #1 Oklahoma on the road last year.
