TaxAct Texas Bowl What happened

Tyler Shough ran for two touchdowns and threw a touchdown pass As Texas Tech took advantage of a series of Ole Miss mistakes — five turnovers — to be up 35-13 midway through the fourth quarter. The Rebels fought back with Jaxson Dart running for a touchdown and throwing another to pull within ten, but the Red Raiders ended any drama by returning an onside kick for a touchdown with just over three minutes to play.

Again, the mistakes. Dart threw three picks and missed a fumble, Ole Miss had some penalty trouble and had no answer for Texas Tech’s offensive balance. 242 Red Raider passing yards, 242 Red Raider rushing yards.

It was close deep in the first quarter. Zach Evans ran for a touchdown for the Rebels, Shough ran for a score, and then Texas Tech took over. Ole Miss moved the ball – it outgained Texas Tech 558 yards to 484 – and the D came up with three points to take, but the hill was too steep to climb in the second half.

TaxAct Texas Bowl What it all means

Texas Tech just gave head coach Joey McGuire a huge contract extension, and his team played like it will be a fun time in Lubbock for years to come.

With the win, the Red Raiders snapped a four-game winning streak, beat Oklahoma and Ole Miss along the way and posted their first eight-win season since 2013.

Texas Tech has now won two straight and is 11-4 in its last 15. On the other hand…

Uhhhhhh Ole Miss? Lane Kiffin is a whale of a head coach and an elite offensive mind, but his team has dropped four straight and five of its last six after starting 7-0.

Last year’s team had no idea after then-QB Matt Corral was injured early in a Sugar Bowl loss to Baylor, and now that makes two rough bowl performances after taking home the Outback in 2020. This is the time saw the program lose back-to-back bowl games since 1967-68.
