MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Minnesota will face Texas Tech in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on Dec. 28.

It's the first bowl appearance since 2009 for the Gophers (6-6), who reached the postseason despite winning just two Big Ten games.

Texas Tech (7-5) returns to the postseason after a one-year absence. The Red Raiders dropped their final regular-season game to Baylor in overtime, 52-45, but they beat West Virginia and TCU and doubled their Big 12 win total from last season.

Minnesota and Texas Tech played each other in the 2006 Insight Bowl.
