That's the hardest part.

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

And if we could go back to the horns down for a minute, I can't remember a player ever getting a penalty for it before Friday night. Later in the quarter, TTU's Justus Parker intercepted Texas QB Sam Ehlinger on an ill-advised pass and returned it to the Texas 14.

Last year, the Red Raiders went 5-7, fueling speculation that Kingsbury was coming into the 2017 campaign on the hot seat. Texas Tech 103, Savannah State 69. In five years, Kingsbury is 30-32, including two seasons in which he finished with a losing record.

Will be updated.Niem Stevenson and hometown freshman guard Jarrett Culver both had 18 points as Texas Tech remained undefeated with a 103-69 win over Savannah State. Kingsbury's decision to start Carter was risky but he made the right move in the fourth quarter to go back to Shimonek. "I had my opinions and thoughts about it", Shimonek said. "Hats off to him for trusting me". The Longhorns are bowl eligible for the first time since 2014. The offense continues to be the problem for the Longhorns, who have struggled to move the ball all season under coordinator Tim Beck. His ability to cover ground in a hurry - a pass breakup in the end zone saved a touchdown last week - gives the Longhorns wide latitude in coverages and blitzes.

Even if the former Milan player loses the appeal, he would still have to extradited to serve prison time in Italy. "All legal steps are already being taken regarding this decision in the first instance".

The Red Raiders (6-0) never trailed after scoring the game's first eight points, a stretch capped by Justin Gray's dunk after he had already made two free throws and had a tip-in basket. "We want to make this legacy, the jumping off point for a new chapter in Texas football, better than average", Herman said. The running game continued to get pushed around at the line of scrimmage.

Texas Tech lead the Big 12 in forced turnovers and got four in the second half with two fumble recoveries and the two big interceptions.

The Longhorns extended their lead to 23-13 with a Rowland 40 yard field goal at the beginning of the 4th quarter.

"We put our defense in some really bad situations", Herman said.
