AMES, Iowa (AP) — Quarterback Joel Lanning tied a school record with five rushing touchdowns, Jacob Park threw for 285 yards and two TDs and Iowa State clobbered Texas Tech 66-10 on Saturday.
Lanning ran for 171 yards for the Cyclones (3-8, 2-6 Big 12), who scored their most points since beating Colorado State 69-0 in 1980. They entered play as a slight underdog, only to overwhelm the
Red Raiders with a 45-3 halftime lead and set a school record for points in a Big 12 game.
Iowa State scored touchdowns on five consecutive first-half possessions — a stretch capped by Kamari Cotton-Moya’s 48-yard interception return — and racked up a program-best 31 points in the second quarter.
Pat Mahomes had 219 yards passing for Tech (4-7, 2-6), which is guaranteed to finish with a losing record for the second time in four years under coach Kliff Kingsbury.
“All I can do is apologize. It’s very disappointing. The program is disappointed. The players, coaches. It’s not acceptable to play like that and represent the university that way,” Kingsbury said.
