Zach Smith tops the Red Raiders - who are allowing 52.6 points on 32.9 percent shooting - with 5.2 rebounds and nine blocks.
Kingsbury sought this week to deflect questions about his future and wanted to keep the focus on senior players who are fighting to end their careers in a bowl game. Texas held the Red Raiders to 62 rushing yards, the seventh time this season the defense has held an opponent to less than 100 yards on the ground. That set up Shimonek's touchdown pass to T.J. Vasher, which cut the Longhorn lead to 23-20 with 11 minutes, 29 seconds to go.
The game victor, a 16-yard pass to Cameron Batson, came with 2:07 to play. The Red Raiders were forced to punt, and after a 7-yard return by freshman wide receiver Reggie Hemphill-Mapps, the Horns started their drive in Texas Tech territory at the 40-yard line.
With his offense in a funk and facing another defense geared towards thwarting the pass, Kingsbury called in his starting quarterback Nic Shimonek, the fifth year senior, to tell him he was switching to little-used McLane Carter, the junior college transfer.
The former Texas Tech gunslinger started 8-5 during his first season of coaching at his alma honor, but has gone 16-21 since that season.

Don't be surprised if Buechele gets more run during Texas' bowl game.
Texas has returned to freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger at quarterback after he came off the bench last week to beat West Virginia. "We were in every game".
Douglas Coleman sealed the game when he intercepted Ehlinger at the Tech 18. 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. "[We've] got to do a better job coaching them in those end-of-game scenarios".
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.
