Casey scored in the 34th minute and Puente in the 64th as the Red Raiders (10-3-5 overall, 3-2-3 Big 12) finished the regular season in a fourth-place tie with Oklahoma. Tech will face the Sooners in Wednesday's quarterfinals.
Casey scored from a Rebekah O'Brien pass, and Puente tallied following a Cyclones turnover in their box.
