Kliff Kingsbury to return as Texas Tech coach

Kliff Kingsbury to return as Texas Tech coach

The Tech Ticket Office will start accepting bowl requests online Saturday afternoon and then via the phone Monday morning, beginning with Red Raider Club members as well as football season ticket holders.

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.

The Red Raiders enter the contest with a flawless 5-0 record, having started the season with a five-game win streak for the first time since 2009, according to Tech Athletics. 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.

National shortage driving up prices of live Christmas trees
However, he said he prefers the U-cut business, and plans to keep his tree prices close to what they were past year . This year, it's much later than usual - falling on November 30 - because Christmas Eve is also a Sunday.

Instead, his tenure with the Red Raiders has looked more like that of Tommy Tubberville. His first drive included a 51-yard completion and his short touchdown pass to T.J. Vasher cut it to 23-20. A few plays later, Ehlinger found Armanti Foreman on a slant for 27 yard touchdown for the games first score. The touchdown was set up by a 52-yard interception return to the Texas 14 by Justus Parker.

"Everybody in the entire locker room loves the man", said quarterback Nic Shimonek of Kingsbury.

"I love Texas Tech", said Kingsbury. "Always have". Texas finally beat a ranked opponent last week, pushing the Longhorns to 6-5 on the season. Kingsbury is 30-32 with three losing seasons in five years at the program where he once was a record-setting quarterback.

Douglas Coleman sealed the game when he intercepted Ehlinger at the Tech 18.

Texas: The loss will make for a bitter off period before the bowl game. "We were in every game".

Texas regained the lead on the next play, as Young burst through the line and bowled over a defender at the 2-yard line before running it into the end zone for a 17-10 Texas lead with 6:41 left to play in the second quarter. "I did feel it was (the) defense and just playing aggressive in the game gets me going", Culver told reporters after Wednesday's win.
