Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have made a habit of coming from behind this year, but they could not complete the comeback Saturday night - losing at home to the Wildcats from Kansas State 41-34.

The Wildcats survived a late onside kick recovery by the Red Raiders to hold on to the victory - improving their record to 6-0 on the season. Texas Tech drops their second straight game at home, falling to 4-2.

Seth Doege came into the game with 1 interception on the year. He threw 3 interceptions Saturday night which all led to Kansas State scores. The Wildcats also blocked 2 Texas Tech field goals and returned a kickoff for a touchdown.  Kansas State was led by quarterback Collin Klein, who was 12-18 for 146 yards passing and a touchdown. He carried the ball 23 times for 110 yards and 3 scores.

Doege finished the game going 43-63 for 461 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. He also had 1 fumble.  Aaron Crawford did a good job in the backfield carrying the ball 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown.

Next up for Kansas State is a road game with their heated rival Kansas. The Red Raiders schedule doesn't get any easier as they hit the road to take on the #3 ranked Oklahoma Sooners.
