From Texas Tech Athletics:

LUBBOCK, TEXAS – Senior quarterback Seth Doege and senior safety Cody Davis will play one final game as amateurs as both have agreed to play in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game on January 19.

This year's East-West Shrine Game will be played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and will be televised by the NFL Network.

Doege, a senior from Wolfforth, was just recently named the MVP of the 2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl as he led the Red Raiders to a come-from-behind 34-31 win over Minnesota.  His 271 yards passing and two touchdowns capped a thrilling comeback in the fourth quarter that led to a game winning field goal by Ryan Bustin as time expired.

On the season, Doege threw for 4,205 yards and became the first Texas Tech quarterback since Graham Harrell (2006-08) to throw for 4,000-plus yards in back-to-back seasons. His 39 touchdown passes rank fourth all-time on the single-season chart.

Doege ended his Red Raider career ranked third all-time in Texas Tech career history in passing yards (8,636), passing touchdowns (69), passing attempts (1,187) and passing completions (819).

Cody Davis, a senior from Stephenville, will join Doege in South Florida after capping off the best season of his Red Raider career.  Davis led the team with 101 total tackles (84 solo), including 10 tackles in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.  His 84 solo tackles ranks in the top 10 nationally.

His outstanding senior season was rewarded by the league coaches as he was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team.  In addition to his on field talents, he was named a finalist for the prestigious William B. Campbell Trophy while earning a $15,000 post-graduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation.  Davis also earned a spot on the Capital One Academic All-America First-Team and became the first Red Raider to take home that honor since newly named head coach Kliff Kingsbury did so in 2002.

Davis ends his career as just the third Red Raider over the last 12 years to record at least 80 tackles in four consecutive seasons.
