LUBBOCK, Texas • Backup quarterback Davis Webb threw for two touchdowns and 310 yards to lead No. 25 Texas Tech over Texas State 33-7 on Saturday night.
Webb threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Eric Ward in the third quarter and a 10-yarder to Bradley Marquez in the fourth after Texas State failed on a fake punt deep in its own territory.
Webb finished 19 for 43 and had two interceptions.
Texas Tech’s defense got the lone touchdown of the first half when linebacker Will Smith returned a fumble 9 yards.
Ryan Bustin added four field goals for the Red Raiders (4-0)
Texas State (2-1) struggled against a stingy Red Raiders defense that gave up only 232 total yards. Bobcats running back Robert Lowe scored on a 49-yard run — a career-long rush for the sophomore.
Bobcats quarterback Tyler Arndt was responsible for two of the team’s three turnovers.
