Texas Tech Red Raiders defeat North Dakota

Posted:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -Taylor Potts threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others to lead Texas Tech past North Dakota 38-13 on Saturday night.

The Red Raiders scored three of their five TDs on the ground, unusual for a team known for its pass-happy offense.

Potts, in his first start, got his rushing touchdowns on sneaks from 1 yard out. He also had three interceptions, one more than he had in the two seasons he played backup. North Dakota safety Joel Schwenzfeier intercepted all of them to tie a school record.

Tech kept the Fighting Sioux secondary wondering which receiver was Potts' target. He was 34-of-48 for 405 yards to nine receivers. Detron Lewis led Tech receivers with 146 yards on eight catches, pulling in Potts' longest - a 49-yarder - for a score.

Mitch Sutton got North Dakota's lone touchdown on a 9-yard run in the final quarter to whittle the margin to 28-13.
