Davis Webb threw two touchdown passes and No. 16 Texas Tech scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to beat West Virginia 37-27 Saturday.

In his first road start, Webb completed 36 of 50 passes for 462 yards. He became the first Red Raiders freshman to surpass 400 yards passing in each of his first two starts.

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.

The Red Raiders (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) moved into sole possession of first place in the conference.

Dreamius Smith ran for two touchdowns for the Mountaineers (3-4, 1-3), who led 27-16 but punted on four straight possessions in the second half to let Texas Tech take over.
