NCAA Football: Texas at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

After the thrilling 27-23 victory over the Longhorns, Texas Tech gained bowl eligibility and will now be headed to Birmingham, Alabama to play in the Birmingham Bowl.

This marks the first time the Red Raiders have ever played in the Birmingham Bowl and the first time the Red Raiders have ever played South Florida. The Bulls finished their season 9-2 and second in the AAC East. Led by their star quarterback Quinton Flowers, USF will be heading back to Birmingham for the second year in a row.

This also marks the fourth year in a row that Texas Tech will play a Charlie Strong coached team. The former Texas head coach will look to finish his first season at USF on a high note.

The game will be on December 23rd on ESPN at 11am.
