Flowers completes go-ahead TD as USF topples Red Raiders in bowl win

Birmingham Bowl: Live updates, score, analysis for Texas Tech-South Florida (December 23, 2017)

Will the Texas Tech prevail, or will they get overrun by the Bulls?

Despite a valiant effort from the defense, the Red Raiders stop troops gave up one touchdown to many in the fourth quarter as Texas Tech dropped a 38-34 decision to No. 23 South Florida in the 12th Annual Birmingham Bowl held Saturday at Legion Field.

Last year, the Bulls entered bowl season with an identical 10-2 record.

The senior passed for 311 yards and four touchdowns. After forcing a three-and-out on the ensuing possession, USF took over at the Texas Tech 43-yard line and worked their way into the end zone, this time ending the drive with Flowers running off to the right side to find a clear path for a game-tying touchdown. It's the 6th time this season that the Red Raiders haven't allowed a first quarter touchdown.

Early in the fourth quarter, and just one play after an instant replay confirmed a call on the field marking the ball shy of the end zone, USF tried muscling their way across the goal line only to be overmatched by Texas Tech's defensive effort to keep Darius Tice just out of the end zone on fourth down.

Key Player: Shimonek. Besides taking a sack on fourth down, the senior quarterback was 10-of-17 for 145 yards and a touchdown. The score gave Tech a 34-31 lead over USF with 1:31 left to go in the game. Shimonek wasn't ideal in this one - his interceptions helped keep USF hanging in the first half - but made several phenomenal throws, particularly after the Red Raiders came out after halftime. Keke Coutee caught 11 of those passes for 187 yards and a TD.

Texas Tech was down but not out, Shimonek hit T.J. Vasher for the 25-yard score. Texas Tech's Justin Stockton ran for 24 yards on the first play and Tre King found pay dirt three plays later on a 4-yard rushing score to put the Red Raiders up 24-17 with 5:55 left in the quarter.

South Florida answered as Flowers completed a 17-yard pass to Darnell Salomon to knot things up at 17-17 by the 8:34 mark.

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. He concluded it on a 21-yard touchdown pass to McCants with 51 seconds left to tie it at 10.

At the beginning of the second quarter, the Red Raiders defense stopped Flowers from completing two deep throws to force a fourth down that the Bulls could not convert.

He cashed in this time with a 5-yard touchdown run to tie it with 9:30 left.
