03/08/2013 - 2013 Texas Tech Pro Day: Seth Doege, QB (6 7/8, 200) - Doege ran the 40 in 4.86 and 4.91 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump. He performed in the quarterback drills, and will likely be brought into camp by an NFL team looking to catch lightning in a bottle due to the tremendous touchdown production Doege enjoyed in Lubbock (he ranked second in the Football Bowl Subdivision with 39 touchdown passes; West Virginia's Geno Smith was the leader with 42). - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
12/29/2012 - Texas Tech senior quarterback Seth Doege had one last chance to redeem himself against Minnesota, and he made the most of it. Doege, who earlier threw interceptions on consecutive possessions in his final college game, led the Red Raiders on a game-tying, fourth-quarter touchdown drive, and then moved Texas Tech into chip-shot field-goal range.
Red Raiders kicker Ryan Bustin booted a 28-yard field goal with no time remaining, and Texas Tech grasped a 34-31 victory over the Gophers in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas on Friday at Reliant Stadium. Doege hit Eric Ward for a 35-yard touchdown with 1:10 remaining to tie the game at 31.
Then Texas Tech's defense came up with perhaps its biggest takeaway of the season, as senior D.J. Johnson intercepted Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson's third-down pass and returned it to the Gophers' 22. From there, Doege threw for a 9-yard gain to the Minnesota 13, and running back Kenny Williams ran 2 yards, setting up Bustin's game-winner. - The Sports Xchange

11/10/2012 - No. 25 Texas Tech has practiced the play that gave the Red Raiders a 41-34 double overtime win over Kansas on Saturday - not always with the best results. Eric Stephens took the snap out of the wildcat formation, rolled to his right and threw a 3-yard jump pass to Darrin Moore for the winning touchdown. ''It's been hit or miss in practice, but I just had a really good feeling about it,'' quarterback Seth Doege said. ''I think Eric's one of those guys when you call his number, he's going to get the job done.'' Kansas quarterback Michael Cummings couldn't connect with Tre' Parmalee in the end zone on fourth-and-9 for Kansas to end the Jayhawks' chances. The two teams traded touchdowns in the first overtime. Cummings found James Sims for a 5-yard score to put Kansas up 34-27. Stephens tied it at 34 on a 1-yard run. The Jayhawks (1-9, 0-7 Big 12) came from behind in the fourth quarter and sent the game into overtime on a 32-yard field goal by Nick Prolago with under a minute remaining in regulation. Those points were set up by a 44-yard run by Cummings on fourth-and-3 from the Jayhawks 36 that took the ball down to the Texas Tech 20. ''Michael runs down there and keeps the ball and almost takes it to the house,'' Kansas coach Charlie Weis said. ''With my luck, he would have taken it to the house too quickly because, as it was, they came down the field and had a chance to win right there.'' Doege completed 45 of 59 passes for three touchdowns and 476 yards for Texas Tech (7-3, 4-3). - AP Sports
10/23/2012 - Five quarterbacks from Big 12 teams were among the 16 finalists for college football's Davey O'Brien Award. Oklahoma's Landry Jones was one of five returning semifinalists from last year. Other Big 12 quarterbacks on the list were Kansas State's Collin Klein, Baylor's Nick Florence, Texas Tech's Seth Doege and West Virginia's Geno Smith. The repeat semifinalists included USC's Matt Barkley, Clemson's Tajh Boyd, Doege and Michigan's Denard Robinson. Three SEC quarterbacks and two each from the ACC, Pac-12 and Big Ten made the cut. The award is presented annually to the top quarterback in the country. - The Sports Xchange
10/22/2012 - Seth Doege stood in the pocket and completed the pass to Alex Torres like he has so many times in practice. There was another throw in the second overtime that was pretty sweet, too. Doege's career-best seven touchdowns passes came in a variety of ways, and No. 18 Texas Tech needed every one of them on Saturday. Doege found Torres for an 8-yard score in the third overtime after tossing a 25-yard TD to Jakeem Grant on an unconventional play in the second extra period, helping the Red Raiders top TCU 56-53 in the first league meeting between the teams since 1995. "I was hoping they'd call that play. We practice it over and over and over," Doege said of his final pass. "Torres does a great job of selling it and he did enough where I could fit it in there." After the Red Raiders (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) blew a 10-point lead late in regulation, Doege threw for a touchdown in each of the three overtimes. The last one came after TCU had to settle for freshman Jaden Oberkrom's Big 12-record sixth field goal to start the final extra period. "I thought Torres was covered, and I didn't think he was going to throw it," Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said. "But he let go and put it in the perfect spot." Texas Tech began the second overtime in a wildcat formation, with Doege lined up wide. Two other players touched the ball before it got to Doege in the backfield on a play they had practiced for three weeks. "It was sweet to get to run it in a game," Doege said. - AP Sports
10/22/2012 - It took three overtimes to separate Texas Tech and TCU on Saturday, but the third proved the difference when the Red Raiders scored a second-down touchdown to end the game. The Raiders' 56-53 victory came after Texas Tech had let a 10-point lead slip away in the final moments of the fourth quarter. TCU (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) rallied with under five minutes remaining in the game. Ladarius Brown caught a 60-yard pass on third down to pull the Horned Frogs to within three points. Failing to recover the onside kick, TCU prevented Texas Tech (6-1, 3-1) from gaining a first down and received the ball on its own 25-yard line. The Frogs converted on two third-down plays and had back-to-back first downs before stalling. Jaden Oberkrom converted on a game-tying field goal to push the game into overtime. TCU chose to kick in the third overtime and Oberkrom made his fifth field goal of the game. That proved to be the deference when Texas Tech converted for the game-winning touchdown. - The Sports Xchange
10/15/2012 - WEEK 7 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Seth Doege, Texas Tech, QB, Sr, Wollforth, Texas...Seth Doege led the Red Raiders to a 49-14 upset over No. 5/4 West Virginia. The 35-point win marked the largest victory over a Top 5 team in school history. Doege threw for a career high 499 yards along with six touchdowns. He was 32-for-42 on the day and became just the fifth quarterback in Tech history to reach the 50 career touchdown plateau. Doege helped TTU take a 35-7 halftime lead as he was 21-of-30 for 336 yards and four TDs at the break. Texas Tech was named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week. - Big 12 football
10/15/2012 - Texas Tech has been named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week for games of the weekend of Oct. 13 after the Red Raiders' 49-14 victory over West Virginia. Quarterback Seth Doege threw for a career-high 499 yards and six touchdowns as Texas Tech had 18 plays of 15 yards or more -- including a 61-yard pass to Jace Amaro and a 53-yard touchdown run by SaDale Foster -- and scored touchdowns on five of their seven first-half possessions to take a 35-7 lead. The Red Raider defense also contributed as they held West Virginia to 38 points below its season scoring average. With the win, Texas Tech makes its season debut in the Associated Press Top 25 as the Red Raiders stand at No. 18 while Tech rejoins the USA Today/Coaches poll after a one week hiatus at No. 20. The Red Raiders are ranked in both polls for the first time since 2011 when they upset No. 1 Oklahoma in Norman. Texas Tech will take on No. 21 TCU on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. on ABC with a reverse national mirror on ESPN2. - Big-12 football
10/13/2012 - A Mountaineer could certainly feel disoriented in the wide open spaces of West Texas. The fifth-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers appeared lost as Texas Tech laid West Virginia as flat as the landscape, pummeling the Mountaineers 49-14 on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege passed for 499 yards and six touchdowns, leading the Red Raiders to a shocking win. Doege threw for 336 yards and four touchdowns in the first half as Texas Tech established a 35-7 lead by intermission and never looked back. Meanwhile, West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy through the first five games of the season, never seemed to be in rhythm. Smith completed 19 of 34 passes in the first half but couldn't help his Mountaineers keep pace with Doege and the Red Raiders. For the game, Smith went 29 of 55 for 275 yards, 124 below his season average. Doege led Texas Tech on touchdown drives of 75 and 69 yards on its first two possessions of the game, capping them with scoring passes to Jace Amaro that covered 39 yards and a 19-yard strike to Eric Ward. West Viriginia answered early when Smith threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Stedman Bailey to cut the Red Raiders' lead to 14-7 with 4:21 left in the first quarter. But Texas Tech shut out the Mountaineers in the second quarter while scoring on three of its four possessions in the period, including the final one when the Red Raiders took the ball with 56 seconds left. - The Sports Xchange
10/08/2012 - QB Seth Doege was 22 of 36 passing for 203 yards, but he also threw three interceptions that led to 10 Oklahoma points. He was fortunate on his first pick when the Sooners' Jama McFarland turned the ball back over on a fumble at Tech's 4-yard line at the end of his return.
09/29/2012 - Seth Doege tossed three touchdown passes and Texas Tech held off host Iowa State 24-13 on Saturday night in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Doege threw for 331 yards to lead the unbeaten Red Raiders (4-0, 1-0), who held Iowa State to just 189 yards of offense. Doege's 19-yard TD pass to Eric Ward put Tech up 21-13 with 10:36 left, and Ryan Bustin added a 39-yard field goal with 2:20 to go. James White had 57 yards rushing for the Cyclones (3-1, 0-1). Iowa State's Steele Jantz had one of the worst nights of his career, throwing for just 73 yards on 10 of 20 passing to go with three interceptions and a fumble. The pick that Tech turned into the go-ahead touchdown wasn't his fault. But the fumble that sealed Iowa State's fate was all on him. Ernst Brun caught the ball near midfield, but the ball popped out after he was drilled by D.J. Johnson. Cornelius Douglas brought the ball back to Iowa State's 9-yard line, and after a holding penalty, Doege found Ward for the score. The Cyclones then got into Red Raiders territory with just under seven minutes left when the ball slipped out of Jantz's hands on a scramble. Texas Tech recovered near midfield and ran down the clock before Bustin's decisive field goal. Jantz also gained just 14 yards on 19 rushes, and his final interception came in the Tech end zone with 57 seconds left. - AP Sports
09/16/2012 - Seth Doege threw for six touchdowns and 340 yards to lead Texas Tech past New Mexico 49-14 on Saturday night. Doege threw touchdown passes of 20, 39, 7, 12, 11 and 14 yards and completed 27 of 35 passes before being replaced by backup Michael Brewer early in the third quarter. Eric Ward caught three of Doege's touchdown passes and Jace Amaro got two of them as the senior quarterback made it look easy for Texas Tech (3-0). The Red Raiders finished with 702 total yards, 325 on the ground. New Mexico (1-2) struggled on offense and alternated starter B.R. Holbrook and backup Cole Gautsche at quarterback throughout the game. The Lobos finished with just 127 yards of offense. The lone bright spot for New Mexico, shut out in the second half, came when Chase Clayton returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown to pull the Lobos within 28-14. - AP Sports
09/08/2012 - Texas Tech scored a pair of touchdowns in a 51-second span of the opening four and a half minutes of the game, and the Red Raiders coasted to a 58-10 victory over Texas State on Saturday night. Seth Doege passed for 319 yards and a career-tying five touchdowns by completing 25 of 32 for Tech (2-0) in less than three quarters of work. He threw two TDs in the first quarter, his first coming less than a minute after the Tech defense opened the scoring on Cody Davis' 88-yard interception return. Facing a Big 12 school on home turf for the first time, the Bobcats (1-1) were showing off an expanded, 30,000-seat stadium in front of an overflow crowd of 33,006 a week after pulling off a shocking 30-13 win at Houston. But they fell behind 28-0 and didn't score until starting quarterback Shaun Rutherford was pulled and backup Tyler Arndt threw a 25-yard TD pass to Terrence Franks with just less than 11 minutes left in the first half. But the damage already had been done, mostly by Doege. His first two scoring passes of 23 yards and 4 yards were completed to Darrin Moore. His third came on a drive that ended the first quarter and opened the second, a 99-yard march that took all of six plays and less than three minutes. It finished when Doege found Alex Torres over the middle of the field for a 23-yard TD. - AP Sports

07/20/2012 - 2012 DAVEY O'BRIEN PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Seth Doege, Texas Tech, has been selected to the Preseason Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented annually to the nation's best college quarterback by The Davey O'Brien Foundation. Doege, the NCAA passing leader in 2011, is primed for a huge senior season as he returns the nucleus (nine starters) of an offense that ranked 13th nationally in 2011 with an average of 470.58 yards-per-game. Doege's top wide receiver and running back targets are back in 2012 and that group should help give Texas Tech its most potent offense in the Tommy Tuberville era.

Another 4,000-plus yard season and Doege could move all the way into third place on the school's career passing yards list behind Graham Harrell (2005-08)and Kliff Kingsbury (1999-02). - Texas Tech football
07/20/2012 - 2012 PRESEASON WALTER CAMP PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD WATCH LIST: Seth Doege, senior, QB, Texas Tech, has been named one of of fifty preseason "players to watch" for The Walter Camp Football Foundation 2012 Player of the Year Award, the nation's fourth-oldest individual college football accolade.

07/17/2012 - Top-five Texas Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. QB Seth Doege...Doege got his first real opportunity to start full-time last season and he showed the command of the offense and accuracy to be very effective - ranking fith in the country with 333.7 yards per contest and throwing for an impressive 28 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions. The highlight of his season came against Oklahoma, as he torched the Sooners for 441 passing yards and four touchdowns against zero interceptions in leading Tech to a shocking upset victory. Doege was also impressive against a talented Texas secondary (381 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions) but struggled with consistency down the stretch once weapons around him began to go down with injuries of their own. Doege has enough zip to pique the interest of scouts and showed surprising vision and confidence in his first full season of action since 2005. To be anything more than a late or free agent prospect, however, he'll need to once again remain healthy and play with greater consistency. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
07/17/2012 - Top-five Texas Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. QB Seth Doege...One position in which the Red Raiders have consistently churned out prospects, albeit lower level talents, is at quarterback and in Doege (pronounced DAY-ghee), Tech once again boasts a incredibly productive passer. Doege was a highly regarded prep prospect who generated interest from the University of Florida, Oklahoma and Purdue (as well as Tech and several others) early in his high school career. Unfortunately, he tore an ACL during his junior season, missing the entire campaign. In a cruel twist of fate, Doege tore the ACL in his other knee a year later. Most colleges pulled their scholarship offers but Leach remain committed and offered Doege an opportunity to play. He served mostly as a backup early in his career, though he did start and help Tech beat Kansas as a redshirt freshman in 2009. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
07/10/2012 - 2012 MAXWELL AWARD PRESEASON WATCHLIST: Seth Doege, Texas Tech, QB, Sr., has been selected to the preseason Maxwell Award watchlist for the 2012 college football season, given to America's outstanding collegiate football player since 1937 and named in honor of sportswriter Robert W.
