Red Raiders rout Lumberjacks 61-13

Texas Tech blew out Stephen F. Austin in its home opener of the 2013 season.

LUBBOCK, Texas – Despite a weather delay that pushed back the debut of Kliff Kingsbury and the Red Raiders at Jones AT&T Stadium on Saturday, that didn't stop Texas Tech from rolling to a 61-13 victory.

 

Freshman Baker Mayfield continued to have the hot hand for the Red Raiders as he didn't miss a beat going 21-for-30 for 367 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone.

 

Mayfield also showed off his wheels a little more in his second collegiate game rushing nine times for 67 yards, which was second on the team.

 

That's all Red Raider fans would see of the starting quarterback, as Mayfield didn't take a single snap in the second half handing the reins of the offense over to fellow freshman Davis Webb.

 

Mayfield's favorite target in the game was tight end Jace Amaro, connecting with him eight times for 142 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

 

Except for a trick play in the first quarter that got the Lumberjacks in the endzone, that would be the only offense produced by Stephen F. Austin on the night.

 

The Red Raiders now enter a short week of practice before getting ready for their first Big 12 Conference game of the season against TCU on Thursday at Jones AT&T Stadium with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m.
