The winning touchdown came 1:15 after Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek gave the Red Raiders a 34-31 lead with a 25-yard scoring toss to T.J. Vasher. It was that kind of second half. Flowers finished with 417 yards in total offense and accounted for five touchdowns. Shimonek threw for 416 yards and three touchdowns.

The Bulls managed to tie the score with just under a minute left on a two-play drive that was set up by a shanked 15-yard punt by Texas Tech's Dominic Panazzolo. - The Sports Xchange
11/27/17 - NOV 27 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Quinton Flowers, Sr., QB • USF • Miami, Fla.,...Flowers accounted for a career-high 605 yards of total offense with five total touchdowns in the Bulls' 49-42 setback to No. 13/12 UCF in their regular-season finale.

11/27/17 - Nov 27 Stock Report, Who helped themselves? Quinton Flowers, QB/RB, South Florida, SR. (6-0, 210, 4.54, #9)...In one of the more exciting games over Thanksgiving weekend, UCF beat South Florida 49-42 in a thrilling back-and-forth contest that showcased two talented quarterbacks. Despite the loss, Flowers impressed with school records for total yards (605) and passing yards (503), also accounting for five touchdowns (four passing, one rushing). As a passer, he has a strong arm, uncorking several explosive plays through the air. But like much of the season, his inconsistent throwing mechanics and scatter-shot accuracy led to several misses. He finished below 60-percent completions for the 10th time in 12 games this season, which is not a fluke when you watch the tape.
Where Flowers really impresses NFL scouts is with his athleticism with the ball in his hands, forcing poor pursuit angles with his burst and using his toughness to run through arm tackles. Flowers, who has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game, is expected to work out at running back and wide receiver throughout the draft process and could be drafted based on how he does at those new positions, similar to Denard Robinson (2013 fifth-rounder) or Keenan Reynolds (2016 sixth-rounder). - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
