LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech (4-3, 1-3) failed to find any rhythm on offense as they fell to Iowa State (5-2, 3-1) for the second straight season, 31-13. 

The Cyclone defense forced three turnovers, including a pick six by Marcel Spears that sealed the win.  Nic Shimonek finished with 207 yards through the air on 31-of-41 passing, while Tre King led the way on the ground with 84 yards on 20 carries.   

Texas Tech got on the board first thanks to a six yard run by Desmond Nisby, after a Justus Parker interception set the offense up inside the Iowa State 10.  The Cyclones would outscore the Red Raiders 31-7 the remainder of the way.  The kicking game continued its struggles as they missed a 34 yard field goal and an extra point.  

Defensively Texas Tech hung tough as they tried to keep the team in the game, but were faced with bad field position the entire afternoon.  Jah’Shawn Johnson led the team with nine tackles and DaMarcus Fields added eight.  

The Red Raiders hit the road next Saturday for a matchup against the Oklahoma Sooners.  Kickoff set for 7 pm on Double T 97.3.
