Texas Tech Holds Off UT Longhorns to Reach Bowl Eligibility

Typically a scoring machine, the Red Raiders offense collapsed last week in a 27-3 home loss against TCU and one of the Big 12's best defenses. That's the hardest part.

"Everybody in the entire locker room loves (Kingsbury)", Shimonek said.

And if we could go back to the horns down for a minute, I can't remember a player ever getting a penalty for it before Friday night.

Texas had the ball in Texas Tech territory late in the 4th quarter with the opportunity to run out the clock, but San Ehlinger threw his first interception of the game interception and it was returned inside the Texas 15. First, the Texas basketball team lost in OT to the Duke Blue Devils and then the Texas Longhorns football team went out on the field and loss to the Texas tech Red Raiders and it was not a fun time to be at Texas Memorial Stadium. Kingsbury is 30-32 with three losing seasons in five years at the program where he once was a record-setting quarterback.

The decision to bring Kingsbury back comes less than 24 hours after the victory against the rival Texas Longhorns.

Bancroft was a surprise call-up in place of Matt Renshaw, and will make his Test debut in the Ashes - the first Australian opener to do so since 1993.

"He told me we were gonna try something new". "I would have been happy so long as we won". The Longhorns missed the chance to earn a seventh win for the first time since 2013 and the chance to end the regular season on a three-game win streak. His ability to cover ground in a hurry - a pass breakup in the end zone saved a touchdown last week - gives the Longhorns wide latitude in coverages and blitzes. Shimonek led the Red Raiders down the field and tossed a 13 yard touchdown pass to TJ Vasher. "We just have to get over the hump".

"We're playing hard and really physical", Herman said.

Junior cornerback Davante Davis closed out the next Red Raider possession with 48 seconds remaining in the half, stepping in front of a pass at the Texas Tech 34 for his first interception of the season and taking it to the 20-yard line. The Red Raiders didn't capitalize on the fumbles in the third quarter but they at least kept the Longhorns off the field.

Douglas Coleman sealed the game when he intercepted Ehlinger at the Tech 18. "We just ran out of gas, ran out of momentum".
