Saturday night, Texas Tech Football opened the 2016 season with a game against the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks.

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't waste any time getting one of his wide receivers into the end zone.  On the first drive of the season, Mahomes connected with Cameron Batson for a 13 yard touchdown pass. The touchdown reception capped off a 10 play, 75 yard drive.

Later on in the first quarter Batson added a 30 yard punt return.

Last season, as a sophomore, Mahomes passed for 36 touchdowns and 4,653 yards.

Videos and photos from the Texas Tech-Stephen F. Austin game will be posted online later tonight.
