HOUSTON, Tx. (KNSI) The University of Minnesota football team closes out its 2012 season tonight with a bowl game in Texas.

The Gophers play Texas Tech in the Meineke Car Care Bowl at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Kickoff is set for 8 pm.

Minnesota went 6-6 in the regular season under second year coach Jerry Kill. The Gophers became bowl eligible with a late season Big Ten conference road win at Illinois.

Senior MarQueis Gray and freshman Philip Nelson are expected to split time at quarterback for the Gophers.

Texas Tech went 7-5 this season, but the Red Raiders will be playing their bowl game without head coach Tommy Tuberville, who left to take the head coaching job at Cincinnati.
