Shimonek Rallies Texas Tech Past Texas

Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury

But after the Longhorns intercepted Carter twice Friday night and kept pounding him with blitzes, it was Shimonek who initiated a conversation with his coach. First, the Texas basketball team lost in OT to the Duke Blue Devils and then the Texas Longhorns football team went out on the field and loss to the Texas tech Red Raiders and it was not a fun time to be at Texas Memorial Stadium.

Later in the 3rd quarter, Reggie Hemphill Mapps muffed a punt to give Texas Tech great field position again. That's already a one-game improvement over previous year, when Hocutt told Kingsbury that he needed to win more games and improve his defense or risk losing his job.

Linebacker Naashon Hughes is one of the few seniors still left from the team that played in a bowl game.

The Longhorns looked to close out the game late in the fourth quarter, driving to the Texas Tech 37 with just over two minutes remaining to play. "We've finally taken a step in the right direction and we want to keep in going, so that means we've got to keep working even harder".

-The Longhorns are 1-6 in their last senior tribute home finales. Kingsbury became the first coach in Tech history to win two straight games over Texas in Austin.

Chaiwala redux: Youth Congress jibe against PM Modi ahead of Gujarat polls
Two months later, the BJP won the election by a landslide majority and the Congress' fortunes have been eroding steadily ever since.

Tech's starters for the match will likely be the same lineup for the first five games of the season, with all five seniors starting.

In beating Texas, Tech used a big-play offense and an opportunistic defense. The touchdown pass to Vasher cut the Texas lead to 23-20. Instead, Shimonek tossed the pass to Cameron Batson, who was running a corner route.

Kingsbury admitted he questioned his own future before the game.

Junior cornerback Kris Boyd guided the defensive effort with an interception and a career-high five pass breakups, one shy of the UT single-game record, to go along with six tackles. Strong's first 11 games mirrored Herman at this point, but after promising the program would not have another five-loss season, Strong had two more and was sacked with a 16-21 record overall.

And because of Friday, Kingsbury will have at least one more year.
