Seth Doege and Texas Tech backed up their big victory - even though it took a while.
Now, the 15th-ranked Red Raiders have to get ready for another big challenge after a 56-53 triple-overtime victory at TCU.
Tech plays Saturday at Big 12-leading Kansas State.
After winning by five touchdowns a week earlier over then-No. 5 West Virginia, Texas Tech (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) overcame an early 10-point deficit, and Doege threw TD passes in each overtime period.
The Red Raiders let a 10-point lead get away in the final 2 1/2 minutes of regulation.
Doege says the Red Raiders had been preaching all week ''to take it to the next level.''
They lost five in a row after upsetting third-ranked Oklahoma midway through last season.

Champs of the Week1. Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech- 318 passing yards, 7 TD’sThere is a reason I include Doege nearly every time in the Chumps category if he has a sup-par game. That’s because he has the potential each and every week to put up stats like this. The senior gunslinger threw for a career-high seven touchdowns in the win at TCU. That is now 13 touchdown passes for Doege...
