No. 16 Texas Tech beats West Virginia 37-27
TEXAS TECH 37, WEST VIRGINIA 27

By JOHN RABY
AP Sports Writer

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- With many solid quarterbacks that have
worn a Texas Tech uniform, Davis Webb made Red Raiders history
in his first road start.

Webb became the first Texas Tech freshman to surpass 400 yards
passing in his first two starts, throwing for 462 yards in the
16th-ranked Red Raiders' 37-27 win over West Virginia on
Saturday.

Texas Tech (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) scored 21 unanswered points after
falling behind by double digits late in the third quarter to
move into sole possession of first place in the conference.

At a school that's seen three different quarterbacks reach 5,000
yards passing in a season - including head coach Kliff Kingsbury
- and three others surpass 4,000 yards, those passers
accomplished little as freshmen or redshirt freshmen.

Webb broke the school freshman single-game record of 422 yards
set by Billy Joe Tolliver against TCU in 1985 and surpassed the
415 yards Webb had last week against Iowa State.

For the day, Webb completed 36 of 50 passes, including a pair of
10-yard scoring passes to tight end Jace Amaro.

"It's encouraging to have a young QB like that and have guys
step up around him and make those plays," Kingsbury said. "It
bodes well for the future."

Fellow Texas Tech freshman Baker Mayfield, who missed his second
straight game with a twisted knee, had 413 and 367 yards in his
first two games this season, respectively.

Kingsbury, who doesn't let freshmen talk to the media, said
Webb's work ethic steadily improved after he wasn't chosen to
start the season.

"The more reps he gets, the better he gets and the more
confidence he gets," Kingsbury said.

Texas Tech's Ryan Bustin kicked three field goals and Kenny
Williams had a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs, including the
go-ahead score with 9:20 left in the game.

Dreamius Smith ran for two touchdowns for the Mountaineers (3-4,
1-3), who punted on four straight possessions in the second half
to let Texas Tech take over.

Kingsbury got a win in his first head-to-head matchup as a coach
against West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen.

"We refused to coach well enough to win the game," Holgorsen
said. "And obviously that will get addressed.

Kingsbury was the Red Raiders' quarterback from 1999-02.
Holgorsen was the team's wide receivers coach from 2000-04 and
added offensive coordinator duties from 2005-07. Holgorsen is
credited with helping Kingsbury join him on Kevin Sumlin's staff
at Houston in 2008.

West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett, starting his third
straight game, continued to be plagued by accuracy troubles and
a habit of floating the ball up for grabs downfield. His
receivers bailed him out at times and he finished 27-of-43 for
254 yards.

Instead, West Virginia found success in its running game against
the Big 12's top rush defense.

West Virginia found the end zone on its first two drives of the
second half. Smith followed a block from Charles Sims and
slipped through a crowd around left end on a 12-yard scoring run
put the Mountaineers ahead 27-16 late in the third quarter.

But West Virginia generated little offense the rest of the game.

"The effort was fine," Holgorsen said. "The will to win was not
there."

Trailing 27-23, Webb found Amaro for a 37-yard completion and
Brad Marquez for 16 yards early in the fourth quarter to set up
Williams' second straight short scoring run.

The outcome was still in doubt until Webb found Amaro with a
10-yard scoring pass with a minute left.

"He's always very composed at the line of scrimmage," Amaro said
of Webb. "He's been able to drive down the field when we've
really needed it and that really helps us have a lot of
confidence in him."

Amaro, who also had a 10-yard TD catch in the first quarter,
finished with nine catches for 136 yards - his sixth straight
game with at least eight receptions. He increased his
league-leading catch total to 56. Marquez had eight catches for
112 yards.

Texas Tech jumped ahead 13-0 but lost two second-quarter fumbles
that allowed the Mountaineers to tie it at halftime.

Webb took two hard hits at the end of an 11-yard run. Linebacker
Isaiah Bruce forced the fumble and recovered it at the West
Virginia 1.

The Mountaineers then drove the length of the field, with Smith
scoring on a 38-yard run.

After Texas Tech's Austin Stewart fumbled away the ensuing
kickoff at the 17, West Virginia kicked a short field goal to
head into the locker room tied at 13-13.

Texas Tech's Olaoluwa Falemi was flagged three times for pass
interference, the final time on a pass that teammate Stewart
intercepted at the Red Raiders' 1-yard line early in the third
quarter. Three plays later, Trickett threw a 4-yard scoring pass
to Sims.
