Texas alive in Big 12, beats Texas Tech 41-16

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Case McCoy passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and Texas kept its Big 12 title hopes alive Thursday night with a 41-16 win over Texas Tech.

Joe Bergeron ran for 102 yards and a touchdown for the Longhorns (8-3, 7-1 Big 12), who end their regular season on Dec. 7 at No. 9 Baylor. If Texas wins that game and No. 7 Oklahoma State loses to No. 20 Oklahoma, the Longhorns would win their first league championship since 2009.

Texas Tech (7-5, 4-5) ended its regular season with its fifth consecutive loss under first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury.

The Red Raiders came in with the nation's top passing offense, but Texas sacked freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield seven times. Texas Tech's biggest play came on a 51-yard touchdown on a fake punt by Ryan Erxleben in the first quarter.

Mike Davis caught touchdowns of 47 and 7 yards for Texas.

    When you bring up Texas Tech Quarterback Nic Shimonek to any coach or player, they will most likely have something great to say about the Red Raider gunslinger. His work ethic, his leadership, and his mentality that he brings to the football field every day. Might be one of the things they would say about the Texas Tech quarterback.
