Alex SimsCorrespondent IIIDecember 28, 2012

FINAL: Texas Tech 34, Minnesota 31

It was a wild one in Houston for the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas, but the Texas Tech Red Raiders emerged with a 34-31 victory over the Minnesota Golden Gophers in a crazy Big 12/Big Ten showdown.

Texas Tech continually shot itself in the foot with turnovers and penalties, but a late touchdown drive led by quarterback Seth Doege and an even later interception from D.J. Johnson led the Red Raiders to an incredible bowl victory.

TTU improves to 8-5 overall on the year, while Minnesota falls to 6-7.

As always, thanks for following along and keep the conversation going below with your thoughts on tonight's Texas Bowl.
