SAN MARCOS, Texas -- Kaleb Barker threw for 363 yards and a program-record six touchdown passes to lead Troy in a 63-27 rout of Texas State on Saturday.
Troy (5-5, 3-3 Sun Belt Conference) has scored 30 points or more in five straight games for the first time since 2013, and has beaten Texas State (3-7, 2-4) in eight consecutive games.
Barker threw five touchdown passes in the first half, and his sixth midway through the third quarter. Sim Byrd accounted for six touchdowns twice in 1968 for Troy.
The Trojans put up 471 yards of offense, snapping its 500-yard mark in three straight games. They had 603 yards in last week's win over Georgia Southern.
Tyler Vitt was 29-of-44 passing for 263 yards and threw a pair of touchdown passes but was intercepted four times for Texas State.
