  • Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury’s job is safe AD confirms

Texas held the Red Raiders to 62 rushing yards, the seventh time this season the defense has held an opponent to less than 100 yards on the ground.

The Longhorns opened the game with a trick play, with Lil' Jordan Humphrey taking a reverse and throwing a 27 yard completion to Sam Ehlinger.

The game victor, a 16-yard pass to Cameron Batson, came with 2:07 to play. Ehlinger finished with 239 yards through the air.

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. After the two teams traded field goals, Kris Boyd intercepted McLane to give Texas good field possession.

The Texas lead grew back to 10 points early in the fourth quarter when Rowland nailed a 40-yard field goal to extend the Texas advantage to 23-13, 37 seconds into the final frame.

RedRaiderSports.com first reported Texas Tech would replace Nic Shimonek, who has started all season, with Carter, a former junior-college transfer.


Despite the questionable officiating, it all worked out in the end for Texas Tech. The Red Raiders didn't capitalize on the fumbles in the third quarter but they at least kept the Longhorns off the field. The drives that ended in short field goals both had first-and-goal inside the Red Raiders' 5 yard line.

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.

On the next play, Shimonek was sacked by Poona Ford and sustained the hit by Roach you see above. Texas had one last chance to take the lead, but another Ehlinger interception ended any comeback hopes.

And who could forget then-Arkansas coach (pour one out) Bret Bielema doing it during a pre-Texas Bowl (the "borderline erotic" one) photo opportunity with Longhorns coach Charlie Strong?

Texas Tech is now 6-6 on the season, but they have the advantage of knowing their coach will remain entering the off season and if they can secure a bowl victory, it will go a long way during the recruiting process.
