By wire services
Published September 25, 2005

LUBBOCK, Texas - Taurean Henderson ran for 141 yards and three touchdowns as No.19 Texas Tech beat I-AA Indiana State 63-7 on Saturday.

The Red Raiders, coming off an 80-21 win over I-AA Sam Houston State, scored only once after taking a 56-0 lead on their first series of the third.

Henderson scored on carries of 3, 44 and 6 yards to make it 21-0. Cody Hodges, who entered as the nation's leader at 445 passing yards per game, threw his first interception in the first quarter. But his hit during the return caused a fumble, which Texas Tech recovered.

Hodges' 10-yard pass to Jarrett Hicks made it 28-0. Then Texas Tech scored twice in nine seconds. Hodges threw a 7-yard touchdown to Joel Filani with 3:37 left in the half. After Martuan Sample fumbled the ensuing kickoff, Hodges found Filani for an 11-yard touchdown.

On Indiana State's next possession, Brandon Douglas blocked a punt and returned it 2 yards to make it 49-0.

KANSAS ST. 54, N. TEXAS 7: Parrish Fisher rushed for 169 yards in place of Thomas Clayton for the host Wildcats, who gained a school-record 658 yards. Clayton, the nation's leading rusher coming in, was benched after a Sept.16 arrest on suspicion of grazing a campus employee with his car.

Allen Webb hit Yamon Figurs for 50 yards to set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Ayo Saba that made it 24-0. A few minutes later, Jermaine Moreira returned a punt 62 yards for a touchdown. The Wildcats outgained the Mean Green 382-76 to lead 31-0 at halftime.
