    Texas Tech 69, UTEP 20 In Three Things

    1. Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes including a 60-yarder just over a minute into the game to Jakeem Grant, and finished out the first quarter with a 46-yard Justin Stockton scoring play for a 17-7 lead.

    2. UTEP looked like it was going to make it a game with a 91-yard Aaron Jones scoring dash to pull within three, and then Mahomes cranked up two short second quarter touchdown runs and found Reginald Davis for a 35-yard touchdown on the way to a 38-point scoring run. DeAndre Washington finished it off with a 51-yard touchdown dash.

    3. UTEP stopped madness for a second with a 42-yard Jay Mattox field goal, but Davis Webb came in and ran for two short scores for the Red Raiders.
