  • USF scores late TD wins wild Birmingham Bowl over Texas Tech

The Bulls finished the season with 10 wins under first-year coach Charlie Strong.

This time, Flowers and USF came out victorious by scoring 21 fourth-quarter points, including 14 in the final five minutes and a go-ahead touchdown with 16 seconds remaining, in an unexpectedly thrilling 38-34 win over Texas Tech in the Birmingham Bowl. The triumph should boost them into the postseason Top 25 after the bowl games are complete.

He got his 12th start of the season in the Birmingham Bowl and completed 32 of 59 passes for for 416 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

His counterpart, Nic Shimonek, also shined for the Red Raiders despite the loss. While the 6-foot-3, 225-pound senior had his fair share of moments in what was his only year starting, Texas Tech's offense took a notable step back this year from when it was helmed by Pat Mahomes and Shimonek's consistency wavered at times.

After a 13-yard pass from Shimonek to Tyler Carr, King rushed in a four-yard touchdown to give the lead back to the Red Raiders, 24-17, with 5:55 left in the third quarter.

A litany of mistakes hampered the Red Raiders throughout the game in all phases of the special teams. Tech marched to the USF 13 on the final play of the game before T.J. Vasher was stopped short of the end zone.

But it got worse on Saturday when a combination of Texas Tech coach coaches tried to make up for Robinson's departure.

In a tight game, those mistakes helped Texas Tech unravel at the end. Especially after he's already been hired for another job by Dana Dimel at UTEP. The first came on a perfectly thrown ball downfield against a Texas Tech coverage bust.

The Aztecs made multiple laterals on the game's final play from their 40.

However, on third and goal, Shimonek threw an interception that was caught in the end zone by Thomas.

Texas Tech's offensive line struggled to contain Deadrin Senat who sacked Shimonek 3 times in the first half.

Instead, the Bulls took advantage of a 15-yard punt from Dominic Pananzzolo to set themselves up with a short field.

USF allowed a late touchdown with 1:31 left to fall behind 34-31, but Quinton Flowers hit Tyre McCants for a 26-yard touchdown with just:16 left. There were flashes that reminded fans how good Texas Tech's offense was in the early part of the season.

If Saturday was Coutee's final game in red and black, he left with another big game. Receiving wise, junior wide receiver Keke Coutee had 11 receptions for 187 yards and one touchdown and redshirt freshman wide receiver T.J. Vasher had five receptions for 84 yards and one touchdown.

After Long Beach opened the game with a 3, Colorado State second seven straight to start a 15-2 run.
