HOUSTON (AP) For a program that has become known for dynamic quarterback-wide receiver combinations, the next great one may have arrived for Texas Tech.
Nic Shimonek and Keke Coutee continued their hot start on Saturday, combining for 161 yards and a 77-yard touchdown in the Red Raiders' 27-24 win over Houston that snapped the Cougars' 16-game home winning streak.
"He's one of the best playmakers, if not the best playmaker, in the country," Shimonek said. "I've said on numerous occasions he's one of those guys if I throw the ball behind the line of scrimmage he can take it to the house. That gives me confidence being able to throw it to him.
