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

The game was tied 10-10 at halftime, and the Bulls trailed by a touchdown entering the fourth quarter.

The Red Raiders' drive came to a halt several plays later when a tipped pass from Nic Shimonek was intercepted in the end zone. Texas Tech did a fantastic job of neutralizing Flowers in the first half.

Two of Texas Tech's best weapons were on full display against South Florida. "With that being said, I will be returning to Texas Tech next season".

Texas Tech's defense started the Birmingham Bowl well.

Red Raiders regain the lead after Tre King's 4 yard rushing touchdown, 24-17.

Vasher caught five passes for 84 yards, second to Keke Coutee's 11 catches and 187 yards, and the former multi-sport star from Wichita Falls scored a 25-yard touchdown with 1:13 left to give the Red Raiders (6-7) a 34-31 lead over South Florida.

Texas Tech went three-and-out on the ensuing drive but linebacker Kolin Hill recovered a fumble for the Red Raiders on the first play of South Florida's next possession. The Red Raiders held South Florida to 132 total yards in the first 30 minutes and contained Flowers.

USF would tie the score at ten with 51 seconds remaining in the second quarter, as McCants caught the first of his two touchdown receptions.

A play into Tech's drive, Shimonek threw a 33-yard pass to Coutee, but the Red Raiders failed to get any points off the drive.

Late in the third, Texas Tech's defense came up big with a red zone stop forged by Dakota Allen and it's a turnover on downs. Bulls took their first lead of the ballgame, 31-27 with 4:26 left to play.

On the next USF drive, Flowers ran in a five-yard touchdown run to tie the game, 24-24.

Shimonek and the Red Raiders were far from finished and retook the lead, 34-31, on a 8-play, 85-yard drive that was capped with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Shimonek to T.J. Vasher with 1:31 left in the game.

Key Play: Flower's 26-yard touchdown pass to McCants that gave South Florida the victory.
