Two plays later, Shimonek, after shaking off a missed targeting penalty, found Cameron Batson for a touchdown, giving the Red Raiders the 27-23 lead. For the Longhorns, the game is a chance to secure their first winning season since 2013.

Texas Tech redshirt sophomore WR T.J. Vasher turned five catches into 127 yards and a touchdown in a 27-23 victory over Texas on Friday. Both quarterbacks threw two interceptions, but those thrown by Texas proved to be the most costly as the clock hit zero. The Longhorns began the drive with a pass from wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey to Ehlinger that gained 27 yards and set the tone for the game.

McLane Carter got the start at quarterback for the Red Raiders going 16 of 37 for 237 yards.

Tech safety Vaughnte Dorsey caused a fumble that linebacker Dakota Allen recovered at the Tech 35-yard line, but the Red Raiders went three-and-out and punted.

Carter started fast, completing 11 of 15 for 175 yards in the first quarter.

Texas rerook the lead on its ensuing possession with a 9-yard scoring run by Daniel Young.

Late in the second quarter, Davante Davis nabbed the Longhorns' second interception of the half to set the table for Rowland's 19-yard field goal with nine seconds left in the half, staking Texas to a 20-10 lead at intermission. Vasher made a ridiculous catch in the third quarter against Texas.

The Longhorns extended their lead to 23-13 with a Rowland 40 yard field goal at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Then Shimonek entered and the game flipped to the Red Raiders.
