MANHATTAN, Kansas (Ticker) -- Taurean Henderson and Texas Tech ruined another homecoming game in Kansas.

Henderson rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the second half to help the Red Raiders post a 35-25 victory over Kansas State in their Big 12 Conference foe's homecoming game.

On September 25, Henderson also scored twice in a 31-30 victory at Kansas in the Jayhawks' homecoming contest.

Joe Rheem kicked a 28-yard field goal early in the second half to reduce the Wildcats' deficit to 14-10, but Texas Tech (5-2, 3-2 Big 12 South) answered quickly. Henderson capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run on the ensuing possession.

Just under two minutes later, Danny Amendola returned a punt 90 yards to extend the lead to 28-10.

Henderson carried 14 times for 93 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter to seal the victory. The final rushing touchdown was his career-high 11th of the season.

Darren Sproles kept Kansas State (3-5, 1-4 Big 12 North) close with a five-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and scored on a 40-yard run late in the third. He rushed 18 times for 87 yards.

Texas Tech jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Sonny Cumbie capped an 11-play, 83-yard opening drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to Jarrett Hicks and connected with Trey Haverty on 20-yard TD pass just under nine minutes later.

Cumbie was 27-of-39 for 326 yards and Haverty had eight catches for 98 yards for the Red Raiders, who need just one win for their 12th straight bowl-eligible season.

Wildcats quarterback Dylan Meier rushed for 91 yards, including a two-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He was 26-of-41 for 248 yards with one interception as Kansas State lost for the fourth time in five games.
