Texas Tech defeats Texas 27-23

Shimonek Rallies Texas Tech Past Texas

I bet he felt some sort of vindication on Friday night. "I think our guys know that", Herman said Monday ahead of Friday's game against Texas Tech (5-6).

Despite the questionable officiating, it all worked out in the end for Texas Tech. He got what he wanted when a salty female Texas fan cursed at him to put his phone down, but then smacked his phone out of his hand right after. Tech is one of eight Big 12 teams to secure bowl eligibility this season.

-Texas hasn't finished the season on a three-game win streak since 2009. "We're not where we want to be, but we're not far off".

Hocutt had declined to talk about Kingsbury's status before the finale against the Longhorns.

Texas (6-6, 5-4) had already clinched its first bowl berth since 2014 under first-year coach Tom Herman but must win its postseason game to avoid a fourth consecutive losing season.

Tech's starters for the match will likely be the same lineup for the first five games of the season, with all five seniors starting.

Carter has nine passing attempts for Texas Tech this season, though two of those went for touchdowns.

In beating Texas, Tech used a big-play offense and an opportunistic defense.

The winning touchdown came with 1:47 to play. But the Red Raiders intercepted a pass at the Texas Tech 31 and returned it 55 yards to the UT 14. The call was for Shimonek to throw to Coutee over the middle.

Junior cornerback Kris Boyd guided the defensive effort with an interception and a career-high five pass breakups, one shy of the UT single-game record, to go along with six tackles.

The 23 points were the fewest Tech had allowed in a Big 12 game since the Raider beat TCU in 2013, which was Kingsbury's first conference win.

During an especially trying season with more downs than ups, this type of gesture stands out even more.

"We are dead set in making it our mission in life in making sure these seniors go out with a positive experience and a win in a bowl game, wherever that may be, and give us some momentum in the offseason", Herman said. The running game continued to get pushed around at the line of scrimmage.
