Birmingham Bowl score: Quinton Flowers ends career in style with another thriller

USF Beats Texas Tech in Birmingham Bowl Thriller; Quinton Flowers Scores 5 TDs

USF allowed a late touchdown with 1:31 left to fall behind 34-31, but Quinton Flowers hit Tyre McCants for a 26-yard touchdown with just:16 left. He finished the game with 311 passing yards and four passing touchdowns to go with 106 rushing yards and another touchdown. It's a low scoring affair in the first half with a 10-10 halftime score.

Texas Tech finished the season 6-7, and the Bulls finished 10-3.

Texas Tech continued to pile up the yards but the South Florida defense kept the Red Raiders out of the end zone and off the scoreboard in the second quarter. He connected on 32 of his 59 attempts for 416 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Red Raiders' defense forced USF to go three-and-out, and the Red Raiders started on their own 35-yard line.

Defensively for the Red Raiders, junior linebacker Dakota Allen led the team with nine total tackles and eight solo tackles.

Flowers threw a 64-yard touchdown bomb to Marquez Valdez-Scantling. The Red Raiders ranked No. 4 in scoring offense the high-octane Big 12 and could be as big a challenge to the South Florida defense as Central Florida was. Facing fourth and three, the Red Raiders chose to go for it, but Shimonek was sacked by Senat for a loss of 10 yards. The final lateral was grabbed by Army's Elijah Riley, who returned it 29 yards for a touchdown.

The Bulls held Texas Tech to a three-and-out following the turnover on downs and began the ensuing possession in Tech territory at the 43-yard line.

Darnell Woolfolk scored on a 1-yard run with 18 seconds left, Kell Walker converted a go-ahead 2-point run and Army added a last-play defensive touchdown for a 42-35 victory over San Diego State on Saturday in the Armed Forces Bowl. It's 17-17 with 8:34 left in the third.

Texas Tech took a 27-24 lead with just over five minutes to play with a 33-yard field goal by Clayton Hatfield, setting the stage for USF quarterback Quinton Flowers to try and deliver some last-minute heroics in his final college football game. Shimonek's final pass was complete to Vasher across midfield but not near enough for the win.

USF would tie the score at ten with 51 seconds remaining in the second quarter, as McCants caught the first of his two touchdown receptions.

After a short run by senior running back D'Ernest Johnson, Flowers threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to McCants to tie the game, 10-10.
