Texas Tech redshirt sophomore WR T.J. Vasher turned five catches into 127 yards and a touchdown in a 27-23 victory over Texas on Friday.

Vasher (6'6/190) has been a hit-and-miss part of the Red Raider offense for all of 2017. Tonight was a clear hit. He showed off his impressive catch radius and also some speed in the pass-happy Texas Tech scheme. His touchdown was a 13-yarder from Nic Shimonek that pulled TTU within three at 23-20. Vasher has a bowl game left to improve his 2017 numbers, but 2018 is when he should be a true factor for Texas Tech and company.

Texas Tech junior WR Keke Coutee hauled in nine passes for 168 yards in a 27-23 victory over Texas on Friday.

Coutee (5'11/180) busts out of his mini-slump in a big way, as he had caught just four passes for 48 yards in Texas Tech's previous two contests. He was back to finding holes in the secondary, and showed that he can make plays in every facet of the passing game. His regular season ends with 1,200 yards receiving and nine touchdowns. He'll get to add to those numbers now that the Red Raiders are going to a bowl game with the crucial sixth win.

Texas freshman QB Sam Ehlinger completed 26-of-47 passes for 237 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in a 27-23 loss to Texas Tech on Friday.

He also ran 35 yards on 13 carries. Ehlinger showed his usual flashes of brilliance in this one, followed by several head-scratching decisions. The worst of these was an interception late in the fourth quarter on a cross-body throw that put the Red Raiders into scoring range and set up the game-winning touchdown. His scoring throw was to Armanti Foreman 27-yarder to Armanti Foreman to give the Longhorns a 7-0 lead. Ehlinger's talent is palpable, but he's going to have to improve his decision-making if Texas has any chance of competing for the Big 12 in 2018.

Texas Tech senior QB Nic Shimonek threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to lead the Red Raiders to a 27-23 comeback victory over Texas on Friday.

What a way to end your regular season career. Shimonek was benched after his poor play the previous two weeks, but came in relief of an ineffective McClane Carter late in the third to lead the Red Raiders to bowl eligibility. A 13-yard strike to T.J. Vasher pulled Texas Tech to within three at 23-20, and then after a Sam Ehlinger interception, Shimonek took advantage of a fallen-down Longhorn defensive back to hit Cameron Batson with the game-winning touchdown with 1:47 left. Texas Tech is now bowl-eligible, and Shimonek will likely get the start in that game.

Football Scoop is reporting that Beau Baldwin will be named the next head coach of Oregon State once their season is over.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Baldwin had interviewed for the position. Apparently, this interview went well. The 45-year-old coach served as head coach at Eastern Washington prior to leaving to coordinate the Golden Bears offense, and he lead the Eagles to a national title and playoff appearances in six of nine seasons with an 85-32 overall record. He also spent a year coaching at Central Washington. The 1-10 Beavers finish their season on Saturday against Oregon State.

Virginia redshirt senior QB Kurt Benkert completed 17-of-34 passes for 186 yards in a 10-0 loss to Virginia Tech on Friday.

Benkert was extremely impressive in the near-upset of Miami last week. This one wasn't close to that effort. The Virginia Tech defense certainly came to play against their rivals, but he made things easy by missing easy intermediate passes and not able to connect on anything of the long variety, either. Benkert and the Cavaliers will finish their year in a bowl game next month.

Virginia Tech redshirt freshman QB Josh Jackson completed 14-of-21 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown along with an interception in a 10-0 blanking of Virginia on Friday.

Jackson added 37 yards on nine carries. This was an atrocious offensive game, although you do have to give at least a little bit of credit to both defenses. The only touchdown in the game came on an eight-yard throw from the freshman quarterback to Chris Cunningham on a run-pass option. It was a solid -- if flawed -- first full season for Jackson, and he'll get a chance to finish the season on a strong note in Virginia Tech's bowl game.

Western Kentucky redshirt junior QB Mike White completed 30-of-49 passes for 355 yards with two touchdowns in a 41-17 loss to Florida International on Friday.

The yardage is solid, but most of it came in the first half, as White and the Western Kentucky offense really struggled to get going in the second half. His first touchdown pass was a 28-yard strike to Lucky Jackson in the second, with the second score coming a quarter later from 14 yards to Nacarius Fant. Barring too many qualifiers, the Hilltoppers and White will next play in a bowl game.
