Red Raiders overcome slow start to beat Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kansas (KCBD) - The Texas Tech Red Raiders rallied from a 20-point first quarter deficit to outscore Kansas 45-14 over the final three quarters to win their Big 12 Conference opener 45-34.

The Red Raiders trailed 20-0 before DeAndre Washington scored on a one yard touchdown run with 1:35 left in the first quarter. From then on the Red Raiders controlled the game en route to the win.

Texas Tech's defense intercepted Kansas' Jordan Webb three times on the day but surrendered 477 yards of total offense, 238 on the ground.

Junior Quarterback Seth Doege finished the day 29-46 for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns, but threw his first interception of the year.

Tech will now return home for the Big 12 Conference home opener next Saturday as they face the Texas A&M Aggies at 6 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium
