Ehlinger followed with a 5-yard completion to sophomore wide receiver Collin Johnson, then found graduate transfer tight end Kendall Moore for a 16 yards to the Red Raider 27.

Kingsbury sought this week to deflect questions about his future and wanted to keep the focus on senior players who are fighting to end their careers in a bowl game. By the time Kingsbury changed into a black suit and readied for his post-game press conference, Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the head coach would return for a fifth season. The Red Raiders scored just three points in a home loss to TCU last weekend, and Shimonek threw for just 137 yards and an interception. Kingsbury's Red Raiders (5-6, 2-6) need to beat the Longhorns tonight if they want to get to a bowl after missing the postseason past year.

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

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

But instead of running the ball, Texas called quarterback Sam Ehlinger's number. A 19-yard field goal by Rowland four plays later closed out the scoring in the first half with the Horns leading, 20-10.

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. Kingsbury is 30-32 in his five years in Lubbock.

Don't be surprised if Buechele gets more run during Texas' bowl game. "We were in every game". 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. "I did feel it was (the) defense and just playing aggressive in the game gets me going", Culver told reporters after Wednesday's win. Shimonek led the Red Raiders down the field and tossed a 13 yard touchdown pass to TJ Vasher.
