During the 49-14 victory Saturday, Tech rushed for 325 yards - their most since 1998 - and limited New Mexico to 84 rushing yards on 35 attempts, an average of 2.4 yards per carry.
For the second week in a row, Tech recovered a short kickoff Saturday and then turned it into a touchdown.
The Lobo offense was held to a season-low 127 total yards while Tech's balanced offense shredded the Lobos defense for 702 yards in a 49-14 Red Raider victory.
With an 18-yard pass to Bradley Marquez in the first quarter, quarterback Seth Doege became the eighth Tech signal-caller to eclipse the 5,000-yard career passing mark.
