After a promising (4-0) start to their season, 2012 ended with confusion and disappointment for the Texas Tech Red Raiders and their legion of fans.
Not only would they lose five of their last eight ballgames, but head coach Tommy Tuberville abandoned the program just days before their showdown with Minnesota at the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
According to reports, Tuberville accepted a $2.2 million contract offer to coach Cincinnati, despite the fact that he assured everyone at Texas Tech he would honor his contract.
Although SMU's season didn't have nearly as much drama, it didn't have much success either. They struggled to play consistent football all season. They closed out the year with a 7-6 record, which included a 5-3 mark versus Conference USA opponents.
Nevertheless, the Mustangs would finish things off on a high note, winning two straight games for only the second time all season and secured the second spot in the West Division.
