As part of this program, one day each spring Andrew Whitworth talks to the Bulldog seniorsto-be and their family members about his experiences during his time at LSU leading up to the NFL Draft.

In addition to Whitworth’s talk, Tech brings in an NFL player agent to speak to the Bulldogs, addressing the player-agent relationships and the correct timetable for establishing it. The agents brought in stress the importance of college players following the correct timetable for signing with an agent and the severe eligibility penalties that can occur if they get involved too early.

PROGRESS ExPECTEd AT LOUISIANA TECH IN 2011 OFFENSE

As Louisiana Tech enters the second year under the explosive offense orchestrated by head coach Sonny Dykes and offensive coordinator Tony Franklin, expect to see continued progress with an offense that hit its stride midway through the 2010 season. Entering the 2010 campaign, many expected to see LA Tech reclaim its offensive prowess in the air right away. What surprised everyone was that the team’s offensive strength was in its ground game amid a revolving door at quarterback early in the season followed by a breakout performance by tailback Lennon Creer over the final seven games. Creer, now a redshirt senior, enters the 2011 season as the team’s offensive standard bearer after finishing 2010 ranked 22nd in the nation in rushing. For the second consecutive year the Tatum, Texas native has been named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List and many defenses are already looking for ways to stop the guy that ran for 149 yards at No. 2 Boise State last year, tallying more yards than almost any single team was able to record in 2010 against the Broncos. The question for Creer and Louisiana Tech this fall will be how he adjusts to the spotlight and pressure, if not from fan and coaches expectations then from being keyed-in on by opposing defenses. This is where an improved Ray Holley and talented newcomers like Tevin King and Hunter Lee are expected to step in. Holley had an impressive spring after acclimating to Tech’s offense last fall and is expected to vie for playing time. King and Lee will be looked upon to take some of the reps and pressure off the two senior tailbacks. As opposing defenses begin to focus on Tech’s talented running game, expect a crop of receivers to find holes and emerge as threats as Tech’s fastpaced offense will keep defenses pres-

www.LATechSports.com

suring the line honest. Taulib Ikharo led Tech’s receiving corps in 2010 with 50 catches for 530 yards but moves to an inside receiver position (Y) this fall and will be pressured by former walk-on David Gru, who recently earned a scholarship. Ikharo and Gru are joined on the inside by Richie Casey, who is expected to start at the other inside receiver position (H). Casey was second on the team with 42 catches for 432 yards and will split time with “scat back” receiver/running back Lyle Fitte, a speedy shorter player with the ability to make plays happen. Also expected to see some playing time in the same manner as Fitte is newcomer Brock Waters. A quarterback in junior college, the speedy athlete has the chance to be a factor at receiver and running back in 2011. Former walk-on Andrew Guillot holds the starting position at X-Receiver entering fall camp but will be challenged by newcomer Myles White, a former Michigan State receiver. At the Z-receiver a pair of newcomers look to battle for playing time with Quinton Patton leading the way. He will be challenged by Scott Cathcart, among others, for a starting spot and substantial playing time. Getting the ball to the talented crop of receivers that Louisiana Tech has recruited and developed is probably the team’s biggest question mark entering the year. Colby Cameron stood out during spring practice well enough to earn the title of “Starter” but last season proved that title can evaporate quickly with a poor performance.

Tech started three different quarterbacks last season in a search for consistent success after pulling Ross Jenkins midway through the season opener only to return to Jenkins at Hawaii to guide the team the rest of the season. However, a year later Cameron has grown and matured with a better grasp at holding on to the job. Waiting in the wings are a crop of talented signal callers that could challenge for the position. Tarik Hakmi was one of the three starters last season while Taylor Burch is much improved after redshirting the 2010 campaign. Two newcomers will also vie for the quarterback position led by true freshman Nick Isham. Considered by some to be similar to Drew Brees, Isham brings a high talent level to Ruston but needs to prove he can quickly adjust to the collegiate game and Tech’s frantic pace of play. Also battling for playing time as a first year player at Tech is Zach Griffith, a JuCo transfer that landed in Ruston prior to spring practice.

Statistically speaking, Tech’s defense has plenty of room for improvement in 2011 and progress is expected to be made especially with the team’s top four tacklers returning. But numbers can be deceiving and Tech’s defense did have several strong aspects to it last year, especially against the run. For the second straight season, Tech held Navy’s potent triple option rushing offense to under 300 yards and kept Southern Miss’ offense in check in a 1312 nail biter of a game. Louisiana Tech’s defense against the run should be just as potent this year and the defensive line’s strengths will be on the outside with a talented pass rush pair of senior Matt Broha and redshirt sophomore IK Enemkpali on the ends. Broha enters his final year of eligibility already ranked third all-time at Louisiana Tech in career sacks (14.5) and was ranked 43rd in the nation in tackles for a loss during the 2010 season. After recording a sack in almost every game last fall, he will be one to watch for on the field – by fans and opposing offensive linemen. The challenge for Tech’s opponents this fall is if they focus their efforts on stopping Broha from the left, they leave a weak side vulnerable to the pres-

www.LATechSports.com

sure from Enemkpali. A talented end that had a breakout year last fall, the Pflugerville, Texas native has the skill set to become one of the better ends in the Western Athletic Conference. Backing up Broha and Enemkpali on the ends are Kendrick James and Christian Lacey, respectively. James is a redshirt sophomore that will benefit from Broha’s guidance while Lacey is a senior ready to help teach Enemkpali. In the middle, Tech will be looking for younger players to make an immediate impact. JuCo transfer and Ruston native Jon’al White is expected to start at nose tackle with Justin Ellis battling for playing time. At tackle, Shakeil Lucas is expected to step up and claim the starting position while former walk-on Adam Hymel will vie for playing time. Similar to 2010, Tech’s defensive packages this season will consist of a variance of 4-3 and nickel packages based upon what kind of offensive formation the Bulldogs are facing. In the 4-3 formation, the coaching staff hopes the third linebacker will be Rufus Porter. Porter stood out on special teams last season, blocking the Southern Miss punt in the fourth quarter that kept Tech in the game. He will be challenged by redshirt freshman Kevin Kisseberth for a starting spot in that formation. Tech’s middle linebacker position continues to be a toss-up between Solomon Randle and Adrien Cole. Both are talented athletes and the Bulldog defense is in the fortunate position with both being good enough to start. Tech will not see any drop off at MLB this fall when one or the other needs a quick breather. The other outside linebacker position is a mecca of experience. Jay Dudley enters his senior season as one of the most underrated linebackers in the league. Dudley led Tech in tackles last season and improved tremendously from his sophomore season to his junior year under the guidance of linebackers coach Jeff Koonz. Dudley has the

ability to be an all-conference linebacker but has been overshadowed by Cole the last two years. Following Dudley is senior Dusty Rust, a talented linebacker that has seen consistent action over the last few years. Tech’s secondary will see some shuffling this fall as the coaching staff looks to improve on the team’s pass defense in 2011. The fifth man in the nickel package is expected to be Chad Boyd, a safety last year that led the team with four interceptions returned for 76 yards. Boyd, although a little undersized at safety, is an aggressive defender known to make game-changing plays. He will be backed up by Javontay Crowe, a Ruston native that is looking for the right fit in Tech’s secondary. Both cornerback positions are question marks in terms of no specific starter has been set yet and that position, going against the pass-heavy offenses in the WAC, will likely see several moving parts in order to keep legs fresh. Justin Goodman and Dave Clark will be competing for time at left corner with Goodman seeing considerable time in the secondary last season while Clark, recovering from a knee injury, spent most of 2010 on special teams. At right corner, Terry Carter is battling to reclaim a starting position he held in 2008 and 2009 while former walk-on DeMarcion Evans has let his consistent play quietly speak for itself. Blasher Saintvil and newcomer Levander Liggins are expected to be in the mix as well. Ryan Williams, a talented JuCo transfer that played corner and nickel last season, has been moved to strong safety to take advantage of his size. He has already proven to be a talented player on the field and is expected to be a leader in Tech’s secondary this fall. He will be there to guide redshirt freshman Mike Schrang, who will be moving into the spot as the year progresses in preparation for the 2012 season. At free safety, Jamel Johnson is expected to be a consistent starter and player for Tech while Quinn Giles will back him up. Injuries the last two years have kept Giles bouncing over to run routes as a receiver but added depth on the offense should keep that from happening this fall.

How do you replace an NCAA record holder? That will be the challenge for Dykes and special teams coordinator Mark Tommerdahl this fall after the graduation of Phillip Livas. An explosive return man, Livas registered an NCAA record-tying eight returns for a touchdown in his career. Lyle Fitte, Tech’s “scat back” receiver/tailback, is one of the few players on the roster that has much return experience and is expected to challenge for the kickoff return spot along with newcomer Myles White. White is expected to fill the shoes of Livas in the sense that he will compete for spots as a return man on both punt and kick returns while Fitte will start out as a kickoff return man. Several others will get their shot as a kickoff return man for Louisiana Tech, including Richie Casey. Casey is similar to Livas in build and stature (and even hair style with Livas’ well-known dreadlocks) and he also brings the type of speed and agility that Livas possessed. After suffering a pair of knee injuries in back-to-back years, the 2010 season was Casey’s first full season on the field. It is unclear as of press time what newcomers might contribute to the return game this year but many think Tevin King, Levander Liggins and Brock Waters all have the skill sets required to be effective return men. On the punt return side, Andrew Guillot is expected to start the year off returning punts. As mentioned before, Myles White will also be back to return punts and – similar to kickoff returns – any number of players could stand out and find themselves returning punts throughout the season. Tech’s coaching staff enjoys consistency at kicker and punter in 2011. Matt Nelson returns for his third season of kicking duties as the field goal, extra point and kickoff work horse. John Hinton waits in the wings but Nelson, who has formed ties with former Tech and NFL kickers Chris Boniol, Matt Stover and Josh Scobee, is a mature and effective kicker with a long range. Ryan Allen is back to punt the ball for his second season at Tech. The transfer from Oregon State had a strong leg

www.LATechSports.com

throughout much of last year with 21 of his 60 punts landing inside the 20 and another 21 getting enough hang time to force a fair catch. Allen averaged almost 41 yards a punt last season and is expected to improve upon that this fall. Getting the ball to Nelson and Allen will be deep snapper Josh Cuthbert, who enters his second season as the team’s specialty snapper.

SCHEdULE

From everything seen on paper and on the field, Louisiana Tech may very well be a much improved and better team in 2011 compared to its 2010 roster. However, that improvement may be marred by a challenging schedule. Tech is put to the test very early in the year as the Bulldogs open the season against a historic and regional rival at Southern Miss. The match-up (Sept. 3, 9 p.m. CT, FSN) between the two schools will be the 42nd meeting between the two programs. USM holds the fourth-longest active streak of winning seasons in the country at 17 years as Larry Fedora has the Golden Eagles flying high entering the 2011 campaign. The Bulldogs will host Central Arkansas (Sept. 10, 6 p.m.) in Tech’s homeopener at Joe Aillet Stadium. UCA enters the year expected to be a Top 25 team among the FCS ranks with Arkansas transfer Nathan Dick at quarterback. Week three doesn’t get any easier as Heisman Trophy candidate Case Keenum returns for a sixth year of eligibility and brings Houston (Sept. 17, 6 p.m., ESPN3.com) to Joe Aillet Stadium. In the first three weeks of the year, Tech will have faced two of the top offensive teams in Conference USA. Louisiana Tech will enter week four squaring off against one of the better teams in the Southeastern Conference when Louisiana’s Bulldogs will face against the Mississippi State Bulldogs (Sept. 24, TBA). Dan Mullen’s team finished the 2010 campaign ranked 15th and returns a wealth of talent. Tech will return home the following week to host 2010 WAC co-champion Hawai’i (Oct. 1, 6 p.m., ERT) in the Bulldogs’ annual Red Out game. LA Tech is looking for a repeat of the 2009 Red Out game against Hawai’i where Tech kept the Warriors out of the end zone in

a 24-6 win. Following that game against Hawai’i, Tech will embark on a sevenweek stretch where the Bulldogs will only have one home game. Starting off that road stretch will be a game at Idaho (Oct. 8, 4 p.m.). The last time Tech played at the Kibbie Dome, Matt Nelson missed a 56-yard field goal attempt to allow Idaho to claim the 3534 win. Last year, Tech used 90 degree temperatures and a home field advantage in mid-October to its advantage in a 48-35 win where the Dykes-led offense really came alive for the first time. After a week off, Tech will travel back west to play at Utah State (Oct. 22, 2 p.m., ERT). Tech has won five of the last six in the series but dropped a 23-21 decision the last time they traveled to Logan. Following that, the Bulldogs return home for a (true) Homecoming affair against San Jose State (Oct. 29, 3 p.m.). After hosting the Spartans, Tech hits the road for what may be its toughest three game stretch of the year with games at Fresno State (Nov. 5, 7 p.m.), at Ole Miss (Nov. 12, TBA) and at Nevada (Nov. 19, 3:05 p.m.). Fresno State and Nevada are expected to finish atop the conference in 2011 while Ole Miss is another SEC Western Division power on Tech’s schedule this fall. In addition, Nevada is coming off winning a share of the WAC title (along with Hawaii and recently departed Boise State). Louisiana Tech then wraps up the regular season at home against New Mexico State (Nov. 26, 3 p.m., ERT). The Bulldogs have won the last four meetings against the Aggies and are looking for a fifth-straight win. With the WAC in the last year of its current alignment and a tough non-conference slate, Tech will be challenged from the first kickoff to the last down of the season in 2011 but a winning record could bring a bowl bid and national attention.

LOUISIANA TECH

SONNY dYKES

Sonny Dykes was introduced as the 32nd head coach in Louisiana Tech history on Jan. 20, 2010 in front of an overflowing Jarrell Room filled with Bulldog fans at the Charles Wyly Athletic Center. In his first season Dykes put his high octane offense into effect, resulting in him being one of only four of the nation’s 22 new head coaches to improve a team’s conference record from the year before. Dykes’ exciting brand of offense improved in several areas of the NCAA statistical ranks

ing yards per game in 2007 as he coached then-junior Tuitama to honorable mention AllPac-10 honors that year. That same season, he helped develop the offensive scheme that pushed receiver Mike Thomas to first-team all-league status as a junior and senior (‘08). Prior to his tenure at Arizona, Dykes was co-offensive coordinator working with thenhead coach Mike Leach and inside receivers coach Dana Holgorsen running Texas Tech’s wide-open passing attach in 2005-06 after having been Texas Tech’s wide receivers coach since 2000. The Red Raiders were among the national top six in total offense and passing during the span. Texas Tech was No. 3 in passing and No. 6 in total offense in 2006 under his co-direction, throwing for 370 yards and accumulating nearly 450 overall. He directed an offense that scored 32 points per game in 2006 with two receivers ranked top three in the nation and a third in the top 20 in receptions per game. While in Lubbock, Dykes helped develop Joel Filani into a two-time first team All-Big 12 honoree and a sixth-round NFL draft selection by the Tennessee Titans in 2007. Receiver Jarrett Hicks also signed a free-agent deal with the San Diego Chargers that year. Dykes also worked with quarterback Graham Harrell who completed 412 passes for 4,555 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2006, ranking Texas Tech third nationally in total offense that season. Prior to his five seasons at Texas Tech, Dykes spent two non-consecutive seasons at Kentucky, first coaching tight ends as a graduate assistant in 1997 and then coaching special teams and wide receivers in 1999 under the “Air Raid” attack of former UK coach Hal Mumme. Dykes coached Kentucky’s James Whalen to AP All-America honors after his Division I-A record for receptions by a tight end. Sandwiched in between his two stints in Lexington, Dykes was the wide receivers coach at Northeast Louisiana where he helped receiver Marty Booker set school seas and career records and earn Blue-Gray and Shrine Game spots before getting drafted in the third round by the Chicago Bears in 1999. A 1993 graduate of Texas Tech, Dykes lettered for three years as a baseball player for the Red Raiders. At age 40, Dykes is one of the nation’s youngest coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Dykes is married to the former Kate Golding and they have two daughters, Alta Carolina (Ally) who is three and Charlotte Reese (Charlie) who was born in late spring 2011.

2011 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

including passing offense (91st in 2009 to 62nd in 2010) and total offense (66th to 52nd) while the team’s average offensive national rank improved from 65th in 2009 to 54th in 2010. Dykes, son of Texas Tech coaching legend Spike Dykes, has coached in the PAC-10, Southeastern Conference and Big 12 during his 16 years in the college football profession while also serving under some very successful head coaches including Mike Leach and Mike Stoops. He won the 2006 Mike Campbell Top Assistant Award, presented by the All-American Football Foundation, and was a nominee for the 2009 Broyles Award, which goes to the nation’s top assistant coach. Dykes came to Louisiana Tech after completing his third season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Arizona, leading the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and an appearance in the Holiday Bowl. That Holiday Bowl appearance marked Dykes’ 10th bowl appearance as a coach with all 10 appearances coming within an 11 year span. A spread-offense specialist, Dykes’ offensive attack set at least five single-season records at Arizona while also racking up a pile of single-game marks in the UA record book. Former Wildcat quarterback Willie Tuitama, a disciple of Dykes, notched career numbers that are among Arizona’s best. “Coach Dykes has demonstrated throughout his coaching career all the leadership qualifications we are looking for in the next leader for our football program,” said acting athletics director Bruce Van De Velde. “His coaching success has been achieved at the highest level of competition, from the SEC to the Big 12 to the Pac-10.” Rivals.com cited Dykes as one of the countries brightest offensive minds and top ten college recruiters in the country. “I have worked my entire life to get to this point, and I have had lots of great mentors that have worked with me and taught me and brought me along,” said Dykes. “I am very fortunate to be here.” Dykes’ Arizona team went 6-3 in the Pac10 Conference during the 2009 campaign, finished tied for second in the league with Oregon State and Stanford. Fond of the passing attack, Dykes Arizona offense in 2008 ranked 16th in scoring and 33rd in total offense while developing and outstanding run-pass balance. Dykes orchestrated an Arizona offense that was ranked 10th nationally in pass-

Head Coach, University of Arizona “Coaches aspire to be head coaches, and it’s a great opportunity at Louisiana Tech for Sonny. He did some awfully good things here, helping change our offense dramatically in his first season and taking it farther each step afterward. He comes from a coaching family and worked in some outstanding offensive systems. I’m eager to see how it goes in Ruston and won’t be surprised if points and yards are one feature for his new program.”

TOM dIENHART

Yahoo! Sports/Rivals.com Writer “Sonny Dykes is one of the top offensive minds in college football and has built some dynamic attacks. He also is a tireless worker whose terrific personality makes him a magnetic recruiter. I expect Sonny to have great success.”

Head Coach, University of Texas “Sonny Dykes is a perfect fit at LA Tech. His dad, Spike, was one of the best coaches of all time, and Sonny is a chip off the old block. He has a great smile and super personality, but has also become a master of offensive football. He has been able to beat teams with better personnel because of his offensive expertise.”

TED MILLER

ESPN.com Writer “It wasn’t just that Arizona’s offense ranked 115th in the nation the year before Dykes came aboard as offensive coordinator. It was the Wildcats entrenched tradition of lousy offenses. Yet Dykes immediately transformed that beleaguered unit. First, he made it competent. Then he made it good. Then he made it pretty darn scary. It was about more than Xs and Os. It was about leadership and inspiring confidence. You know, stuff good head coaches do.”

Cornerbacks

Kevin Curtis enters his second season as the cornerbacks coach at Louisiana Tech. In his first season, the Bulldogs tallied 12 interceptions as Ryan Williams led the Tech cornerbacks with two. Curtis joined the LA Tech staff in 2010 after serving two years at Navarro Junior College where he coached the secondary. While at Navarro, Curtis’ teams went 21-2, won two conference championships and were the 2009 C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl champions. Curtis’ teams were ranked first in the country in interceptions and had five all-conference honorees while he recruited the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and West Texas areas. Curtis was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big 12 safety at Texas Tech, playing for the Red Raiders when Dykes was on the Texas Tech staff. After a successful collegiate career, Curtis was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent three seasons. After one year with the Houston Texans, Curtis played two years as the team captain for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe before returning to the United States to coach. “I am very pleased to bring Kevin Curtis on our staff,” Dykes said. “I had an opportunity to work with and get to know him at Texas Tech where he was a great player. Kevin is an outstanding person whom I had the chance to see coach when I recruited the Navarro area and I knew it wouldn’t be long before he was a highly sought-after coach on the Division I level. He is a great recruiter and will be a very strong, positive role model for our players.”

STAN EGGEN

2011 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Long-time college coach Stan Eggen begins his fourth season as part of the Louisiana Tech staff and his second as coach of the defensive line. In addition to 28 years of college coaching experience, Eggen has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the country, a reputation that has earned him the recruiting coordinator title beginning in the spring of 2010. Eggen’s first year guiding the defensive line witnessed Matt Broha record a tackle for a loss of 11 of the team’s 12 games in 2010 and vaulted the junior to third in the school’s all-time sacks record with a year still to play. During Eggen’s second season with LA Tech and as coach of the linebackers, he oversaw a unit that ranked 40th in the nation in both pass defense and pass efficiency defense. Linebacker Adrien Cole garnered first team all-WAC honors as he led LA Tech with 93 total tackles, a mark that ranked him 50th in the nation. In his first season with the Bulldogs, Eggen helped coach a defensive unit that ranked 13th nationally against the run, allowing only 103.9 yards per game, the fewest by a Tech team since the program joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1989. Tech also allowed only 23.7 points per game, the best by a Bulldog team since 1992. The Bulldogs also posted a 21-0 shutout over San Jose State during the season, the first shutout by a LA Tech team since 1996 (a span of 148 games). It was also the first road shutout since 1988 (a span of 225 games). The Bulldogs success defensively led the program to the 2008 Independence Bowl title as LA Tech defeated Northern Illinois 17-10, the first bowl victory in more than three decades. Not only did Eggen’s linebackers succeed on the field in 2008, but off the field as well as Harris was named one of 15 National Scholar-Athletes, the first in Louisiana Tech history. Harris was also named a Draddy Award finalist and one of 13 Wuerffel Award finalists. Prior to coming to Ruston, Eggen served as the defensive line coach at Texas A&M under coach Dennis Franchione from 2003-2007. During his time with the Aggies, Texas A&M participated in three bowl games, including the 2005 Cotton Bowl, the 2006 Holiday Bowl and the 2007 Alamo Bowl. Eggen has been named as one of the Top 20 recruiters in the country multiple times by Rivals.com and was named as one of the Top 10 recruiters in the country by Scout.com. Prior to his stint at Texas A&M, Eggen served as the defensive line coach at Alabama under Franchione in both 2001 and 2002. The 2001 Crimson Tide squad participated in the Independence Bowl. He also served under Franchione at TCU (1998-00) and New Mexico (1997) where he worked as the defensive line coach. He helped lead the Horned Frogs to three straight bowl appearances, including the 1998 Sun Bowl and the 1999 and 2000 Mobile Bowl. Eggen was an integral part of helping lead a TCU defense in 2000 that ranked first in scoring defense and first in total defense in the country. Eggen and the Lobos participated in the 1997 Insight.com Bowl. He had two stints at UNLV (1991-92, 1994-96) sandwiched around one year at Nevada in 1993. He was the defensive coordinator at UNLV from 1994 through 1996, gaining valuable experience and helping the Rebels to the 1994 Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to that, he coached at Utah State (1986-90), Drake (1984-85), Memphis (1982-83), Southeast Missouri State (1981) and North Dakota (1979-80). While at Utah State, three of his players that he recruited or coached earned Big West Defensive Player of the Year honors. His postseason resume speaks for itself. He has been a part of nine bowl games. Two of his defensive linemen from the 2007 A&M squad - Red Bryant and Chris Harrington - were selected in the 2008 NFL Draft. Over his last three coaching stops, Eggen has coached more than a dozen defensive lineman who were selected in the NFL Draft and more than a total of 20 who signed NFL contracts. He has mentored the likes of the Tennessee Titans’ Antwan Odom, Green Bay Packers’ Johnny Jolly and Buffalo Bills’ Aaron Schobel. Eggen, a native of Dilworth, Minn., earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Moorhead State (Minn.) in 1977 and his master’s degree in education from North Dakota in 1981. He and his wife, Christina, have three daughters, Sloane, Paige and Shelby. Sloane and Paige are Louisiana Tech students.

TONY FRANKLIN Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks

Tony Franklin joined the Louisiana Tech staff as the offensive coordinator in February 2010, bringing an exciting offensive attack back to Joe Aillet Stadium. In his first year on staff, Tech’s offense exploded into a high octane mechanism in the middle of the season resulting in Tech scoring at least 20 points in six of the last seven games with the team scoring more than 30 points in four of those contests. Franklin joined the LA Tech family after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee. At MTSU, Franklin’s offense generated 421.7 yards and 32.0 points per game, the fourth and seventh highest totals in school history. The Blue Raider offense, which produced three all-Sun Belt Conference players, had 30 or more points nine times and topped the 400-yard mark on eight occasions. Franklin’s 2009 unit set school records in total yards, passing yards, and total points, while finishing 23rd nationally in scoring and 27th in total offense. The end result was a 10-3 season that witnessed a 32-31 win over Maryland early in the season and a year capped off by a 42-32 win over Southern Miss in the New Orleans Bowl, the school’s first bowl in the FBS era. The 10-win season was the most by any Blue Raider team since 1992. Quarterback Dwight Dasher came of age in Franklin’s offensive schemes. Dasher, a second team all-conference performer and MVP of the New Orleans Bowl, ranked 7th in the nation in total offense, threw for a school record 23 TD passes, and was named the SBC Player of the Week three times. Franklin made his way to Middle Tennessee after a brief stint as the offensive coordinator at Auburn in 2008 and the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Troy. In his two seasons at Troy, the Trojans went 16-9 overall and 12-2 in the Sun Belt Conference while collecting two conference championships. During that span his offense scored 30 or more points 11 times, including games against Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma State. In his first season at Troy, in addition to helping the Trojans to their first Sun Belt Conference title and a victory in the New Orleans Bowl, Franklin also helped engineer the second-ranked offensive unit in the Sun Belt just one year after the team ranked last in the league in total offense. The Trojans ranked first in the league in passing offense, again one year after ranking last, despite having faced three of the top 20 ranked passing defense teams in the country during the season, and improved in conference scoring from 12 points to 25 points per game. Franklin joined the University of Kentucky football staff in 1997 following 16 years as a high school football coach. During his four-year tenure at UK, the Wildcats enjoyed unprecedented success on the offensive side of the ball, including setting several NCAA, SEC, and school records. After coaching running backs for three seasons, Franklin was named offensive coordinator for the 2000 season and led the Wildcats to success as the nation’s second-best passing offense as well as the nation’s 11th-best team in total offense. Franklin’s two-back combinations at Kentucky outgained any two-back combinations in the SEC in total yards from scrimmage for three straight seasons. Quarterbacks Tim Couch, Dusty Bonner, and Jared Lorenzen each led the SEC in passing during their time as UKs quarterbacks, and Couch was the first player selected in the 1999 NFL draft. Several other UK players reached their goals in making NFL teams after their experience in the high-powered offense. Franklin was also named one of the top 10 recruiters in the South during his four years at Kentucky as he helped lead the Wildcats to their first back-to-back bowl appearances in 15 years and their first New Year’s Bowl game appearance in 50 seasons. USA Today took notice of Franklin’s football coaching and teaching abilities in a feature story in 2005 which detailed his consulting successes as a nationally sought-after offensive football coach. Franklin also received rave reviews for his second book, Victor’s Victory, which chronicled the tragic death and spec spectacular life of 15-year-old Hoover High football player Victor Dionte Hill. Hill died from sudden cardiac arrest on the football practice field during one of Franklin’s consulting sessions. The book has helped to continue the mission of Cheryl Hill, Vic Victor’s mother, to make teachers, coaches, and parents aware of the need for automatic external defibrillators (AED’s) in every school and youth organization in Alabama. Franklin achieved both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Murray State University, where he was a two-year starter as a running back. He is married to Laura Franklin, and they have three girls: Chelsea, Caroline, and Caitlin.

DAMON HARRINGTON

2011 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Damon Harrington developed a reputation as a fierce competitor during his playing days as a linebacker for Louisiana Tech during the late 1990s. Harrington still has the same hard-nosed reputation among the Bulldog players, but it comes as the head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech. Harrington was hired as the head strength and conditioning coach at Tech in January, 2006, his second stint in the role after he spent the previous two years as the assistant director for player development at Georgia Tech working with all aspects of the Yellow Jackets football strength and conditioning program alongside another former Bulldog coach, Eric Ciano. Before taking the position at Georgia Tech, Harrington served as the head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech in 2002 and 2003, overseeing a program which serves all 16 of the university’s NCAA sanctioned sports. He also spent two years as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech under Ciano in 2000 and 2001. Since returning to his alma mater, Harrington has been instrumental in improving the strength and conditioning program at Louisiana Tech. One of the many improvements during Harrington’s regime has been the implementation of supplements for the Tech student-athletes, including chocolate milk and muscle milk, which helps with the recovery period after workouts. Harrington’s regiment workout program has helped the Bulldog football players break more than 25 strength records (by position) in the last five years and ultimately has helped lead to a number of fourth-quarter come-from-behind wins. Under the direction of Dooley, Harrington and his staff have implemented the Dawg Fight Program, which incorporates ATTITUDE, TEAM, DISCIPLINE, TOUGHNESS and EFFORT. This program is designed to prepare the players to be as physically and mentally tough as possible in order to play hard for four quarters and make the plays at the end of games that will ultimately lead to victory. In the past three seasons, Louisiana Tech has posted five fourth quarter come-from-behind wins. In the four seasons prior, the Bulldogs had posted a total of five fourth quarter come-from-behind wins. Harrington began his playing career at Louisiana Tech as a walk-on to the Bulldog football program in 1995 before earning a scholarship his sophomore season. He started every game at linebacker during his junior and senior seasons, leading the team in tackles both years with 121 in 1998 and 122 in 1999. The Elkton, Md., native earned All-Louisiana honors in 1998 and 1999 while also being named to the All-Independent team by Football News in 1999. Harrington earned his bachelor’s degree from Tech in fitness and wellness in 2000 and completed his master’s degree in sports science in 2002. He is certified by the College Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA). Harrington is married to the former Meg Everett of Alexandria, and the couple have a four-year-old son, Luke, and a two-year-old daughter, Addison.

2011 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Rob Likens enters his second season at Louisiana Tech as an assistant head coach and wide receivers coach. In his first year, Likens oversaw a receiving corps that improved from 91st in the country in 2009 to 62nd in 2010 despite a revolving door at quarterback through the first third of the season. Likens coached Taulib Ikharo to a ninth-place rank in receptions per game among WAC receivers. Prior to joining the Louisiana Tech family, Likens led Central Connecticut State as offensive coordinator to more wins than any other four-year period in school history. Likens coached the Northeast Conference’s top rushing offense for four straight seasons. CCSU’s ground game also ranked in the nation’s top-10 every year during under Likens. The Blue Devils averaged 239.18 yards per game on the ground in 2008. It was the seventh best team effort in the FCS. Central Connecticut also paced the NEC in scoring offense, averaging 30.0 points per game. “Rob is a great addition to our staff,” said Dykes. “I have known him for a while and have wanted to work with him for a long time. He has a great knowledge of the offense we want to install and as a Mississippi native, he brings a tremendous recruiting base, connections and experience.” Likens coached CCSU’s ground game to a ranking in the nation’s top-10 among FCS schools every year during his tenure as well as a winning record in all four seasons, capping off the 2009 season with a 9-3 mark. The CCSU rushing offense was tops among FCS schools in 2006. Under Likens’ guidance, the Blue Devils led the conference in scoring offense in two seasons, had three undefeated home records, averaged just under 30 points per game in four seasons (29.1) and won more games in a four-year span than any collection of teams in school history. Likens coached two 1,000-yard rushers, two Walter Payton finalists and two All-America running backs in Justise Hairston and James Mallory. Likens also coached the school’s all-time leader in passing efficiency (Aubrey Norris, 139.4) and two NEC Offensive Players of the Year in Hairston and Mallory. In all, Likens had 13 all-conference selections in his four seasons. James Mallory earned second team All-NEC honors in 2008. With 1,520 yards, he became the second player in school history to crack the 1,500 mark in rushing. Mallory was also the fourth player to go over 1,000 career rushing yards under Likens. Aubrey Norris, who enters this season as the top-rated passer in program history, also accomplished the feat last season. That duo joins Jo Jo Freeman and Justise Hairston on the list of four. Also under Likens’s tutelage in 2008, Nick Colagiovanni became the program’s 11th receiver to eclipse 1,000 career yards. In 2007, Likens’s offense was number one in total and rushing offense in the Northeast Conference. The Blue Devils posted 387.7 yards per game, including 257.6 yards per game on the ground, ranking 10th in the nation in rushing offense. The Blue Devil offense set numerous school records in 2006, including total yards and rushing yards in a single sea season.

PETE PEROT Offensive Line

As Pete Perot continues in his third decade on the Louisiana Tech staff, Bulldog fans will be thrilled to see the former NFL player on the sideline once again this fall as the Tech veteran enters his 22nd year in Ruston. Perot’s experience came through in the last two years as the offensive line paved the way for a Tech tailback to record 1,000 rushing yard seasons in consecutive years for the first time since Ryan Moats grabbed the nation’s attention in 2003-04. Lennon Creer’s 1,181 yards in 2010 followed Daniel Porter’s 2009 mark of 1,164 rushing yards as Creer slashed through opposing defenses over the last two-thirds of the season. Perot’s return to the Louisiana Tech sidelines resulted in an offensive line that paved the way for an offense that finished the 2009 season ranked 29th in the nation in rushing and 46th in the country in scoring. Perot’s offensive line also paved the way for Daniel Porter to become the school’s all-time rushing leader with 3,352 career rushing yards as he became only the second player in Tech history to record back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. The long-time fan favorite was able to enjoy the Bulldogs postseason success as he returned to the Tech sideline to coach in the 17-10 Independence Bowl victory over Northern Illinois in late December. Perot returns an experienced offensive line in 2010, including four starters and second team all-WAC left tackle Rob McGill. Perot came to Louisiana Tech in 1986 as a volunteer assistant following an eight-year NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1979-84) and New Orleans Saints (1985-86) which was highlighted by his start for the Eagles in Super Bowl XV. In 1988, he was promoted to offensive line coach at Tech where he stayed until he departed for the same position at Southern Miss in 1997. After three years on the Golden Eagles staff, Perot returned to Tech in 2000 where he has been a mainstay on the Bulldog staff. Perot has earned a reputation as one of the top offensive line coaches in the South, tutoring such greats as William Roaf (New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs), Grant Williams (New England Patriots) and Joey Chustz (Jacksonville Jaguars). Under Perot’s tutelage, Roaf earned All-America honors in 1992 and was one of three finalists for the coveted Outland Trophy before being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Saints. The Natchitoches, La., native also coached former Bulldog left guard Aaron Lips, who earned all-WAC honors for three straight seasons while also starting a Tech Division I record 47 straight games. Lips was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List as a senior. During his career at Tech, Perot’s offensive lines have paved the way for the top eight single season rushing performances in Bulldog history, including Ryan Moats’ record-breaking 1,774 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2004, and eight of the top 10 overall. While at Southern Miss, Perot helped the Golden Eagles to three straight bowl appearances where his offensive lines paved the way for three straight 1,000 yard rushing performances (one by Eric Shaw in 1997, and two by Derrick Nix in 1998 and 1999). His 1999 line placed three USM players on the Conference USA All-Freshman team. As a collegiate player, Perot started all four years on the offensive line at Northwestern State before being drafted in the second round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. The father of two also serves as the liaison between the Bulldog football program and NFL scouts. Perot is married to the former Kate Adams of Hodge, La., and the couple has two sons, Joey and Josh. Kate is an admissions counselor at Louisiana Tech and is also a Tech alumna.

During that time, Spangler has taken a Bulldog defense that ranked dead last in the country (among FBS programs) in scoring defense, rushing defense and total defense prior to his arrival and coached them into one of the top defensive units in the Western Athletic Conference. His energy and passion for the game and defensive philosophy are the reasons why former Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley hired the veteran coach as the Bulldogs defensive coordinator and why, upon Sonny Dykes’ arrival there was no better defensive coordinator to be found. Spangler’s safeties accounted for five of the team’s interceptions with Chad Boyd leading the way with four picks returned for 75 yards. His defensive game plan held Navy’s impressive triple option run game to under 300 yards for the second consecutive season. Prior to Spangler’s arrival on campus, Tech ranked dead last in the country in total defense (483.33 ypg) and scoring defense (41.7 ppg) and nextto-last in rushing defense (225.38 ypg) in 2006. However, under Spangler’s guidance, the Bulldog defense has made huge strides and propelled the program to the 2008 Independence Bowl title. In 2008, the Bulldogs allowed only 103.9 yards per game on the ground, the best since the program joined the FBS in 1989 and an improvement of over 120 yards per game in only two years. Tech ranked 13th nationally in rushing defense and did not allow a single 100-yard rusher the entire season. Tech also allowed only 23.7 points per game, the best by a Bulldog team since 1992. It was an improvement of 18.0 points per game in the past two years. The Bulldogs also posted a 21-0 shutout over San Jose State during the season, the first shutout by a LA Tech team since 1996 (a span of 148 games). It was also the first road shutout since 1988 (a span of 225 games). In his first two years at Tech, six Bulldog defenders earned all-WAC honors including safety Antonio Baker, a two-time first team honoree. The 48-year-old Spangler spent the past two decades as a full-time coach on the college football sideline where he served the first 10 years at Georgia Southern, helping lead the program to a pair of Division I-AA national titles. He spent 10 seasons at Divi Division II Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C., where he served as the head coach from 2001-2006. In 2006, Spangler’s defense at Presbyterian ranked first in the South Atlantic Conference in scoring defense (13.2 ppg) and total defense (233.5 ypg) en route to a 7-4 record. In 2005, he led Presbyterian to a 10-2 mark, the South Atlantic Con Conference title and the school’s first appearance ever in the NCAA Division II playoffs, earning him the league’s Coach of the Year Award. He also garnered two American Football Coaches Association Region 2 Coach of the Year Awards while at Presby Presbyterian. His Presbyterian defenses were ranked in the top half of the South Atlantic Conference in all defensive categories each of his last eight seasons there, and his 1998 Blue Hose unit forced an incredible 48 turnovers in 11 games and ranked first nationally in turnover margin (+2.27). coor After taking the job as the secondary coach at Georgia Southern in 1987, Spangler was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 1990 and then took over the sole reins of the program’s defense in 1992. The Stone Mountain, Ga., native earned the Southern Conference Defensive Coach of the Year Award in 1993 as the Eagles won the league title and advanced to the playoffs. His defense ranked sixth nationally in scoring defense. Spangler played defensive back at the University of Georgia from 1979 through 1982 and was a member of the 1980 Division I National Championship team that defeated Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. He lettered his senior season helping Georgia to the 1982 Southeastern Conference title, the program’s third straight. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Georgia in the spring of 1984. Spangler is married to the former Kim Pierce of Ft. White, Fla., and they are the parents of three children: Pierce, Peyton, and Gracie.

MARK TOMMERdAHL Special Teams Coordinator/Inside Receivers

Louisiana Tech landed one of the top assistant coaches in the South when long-time special teams coach Mark Tommerdahl joined the Bulldog staff in 2009. Coaching the inside receivers and serving as the special teams coordinator, Tommerdahl came to LA Tech with more than two decades of Division I coaching experience serving as an assistant coach on some of the top programs in the country. He has served as an assistant coach on 12 bowl teams as well as five league champions and two division champions. His experience and game-planning on special teams helped Phillip Livas tie an NCAA record in 2010 with the return specialist’s eighth career return for a touchdown. Livas ended his career with four punt returns and four kickoff returns for a score. Tommerdahl’s coaching helped Dennis Morris garner all-America honors as well as being named the Tight End of the Year by the College Football Performance Awards. Morris finished his senior year at LA Tech with 38 catches for 623 yards and he had a national-leading 12 receiving touchdowns among tight ends in 2009. Prior to spending the 2008 season at UL-Monroe, Tommerdahl served as the tight end and special teams coach at Texas A&M for five years. During his tenure with the Aggies, Tommerdahl helped lead the program to the Cotton Bowl (2004), the Holiday Bowl (2006) and the Alamo Bowl (2007). He coached present-day Dallas Cowboys tight end Marcellus Bennett, who ended his Texas A&M career as the program’s all-time positional leader in receptions and yards. Tommerdahl’s special teams units in College Station were also among the nation’s best, ranking in the Top 20 in the nation in net punting 2006 (14th) and in 2007 (5th) and in kick-off returns in 2003 (10th), 2006 (2nd), and 2007 (20th). The Alabama Crimson Tide were fortunate enough to land Tommerdahl’s services during the 2001 and 2002 seasons as he served as the program’s tight ends and special teams coach. He helped the Crimson Tide to the 2001 Independence Bowl and the 2002 SEC West Division title. Tommerdahl also served as the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator during stints at TCU (1998-2000), New Mexico (1997) and Minnesota (1995-96) where he coached a Lou Groza finalist at all three schools. TCU’s kickoff return units were ranked No. 1 in the nation in back-to-back seasons while his special teams units ranked No. 1 in the league in three of four statistical categories. In 1997 at New Mexico, four of the Lobos special teams units were ranked in the top 20 in the country as the team won the WAC Mountain Division title. The Fergus Falls, Minnesota native began his collegiate coaching career in 1984 as a graduate assistant at Wyoming where he spent the next 11 seasons serving in numerous capacities including the tight ends coach, offensive coordinator and backfield coach. He helped lead the Cowboys to four bowl appearances and three WAC titles. Tommerdahl earned his bachelor’s degree in business and physical education from Concordia College in 1983 and his master’s degree in business administration from Wyoming in 1986. He is married to the former Annette Jondahl.

YT STADIUM ISREVINU

Joe Aillet Stadium has been home to Louisiana Tech football for the past 40-plus years as Bulldog fans have watched legends such as Terry Bradshaw, Roger Carr, Fred Dean, Pat Tilley, Matt Dunigan, William Roaf, Troy Edwards and Tim Rattay all don the Tech red and blue. Opened in 1968 at a capacity of 23,000, Joe Aillet Stadium -- which wasn’t given its current name until Nov. 11, 1972, when it was dedicated in honor of the former Tech coaching legend -- has proven instrumental in some of the biggest wins in the program’s 100-plus year history. The facility was upgraded in 1985 when a luxury sky box was added to the press box and again in 1989, when an additional 7,600 seats were added, increasing the seating capacity to 30,600. In the summer of 2006 Joe Aillet Stadium received a new surface as FieldTurf Mono -- which is considered the top of the line artificial turf -- was installed by FieldTurf Tarkett. In the summer of 2008, that turf was replaced with a new version to include the athletic department’s new logo. A brand new, state-of-the-art videoboard was installed in the north end zone in time for the 2009 season, a $2 million addition to the facility. Built by Daktronics, the national leader in scoreboard and videoboard manufacturers, it is 25 feet x 45 feet and can show one display or be split into multiple replays. In addition, the south end zone received a brand new LED scoreboard that all fans can easily see during the day or at night. The stadium’s namesake -- Joe Aillet is a member of the Louisiana Tech Athletics Hall of Fame and the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame -- guided his Tech teams to a 151-86-8 record and nine conference championships from 1940-1966. The winning tradition Aillet established during his days of coaching at Louisiana Tech has continued as the Bulldogs have posted 10 perfect seasons in the facility’s history. From the first game ever played in the stadium, a 35-7 win over East Carolina on Sept. 28, 1968, to a 22-14 victory over SEC foe Mississippi State in 2008, Joe Aillet Stadium been the site of some of the most magical moments in Louisiana Tech football history. Joe Aillet Stadium has proven to be a tough place for opposing teams to play for more than four decades. Over the course of the stadium’s history, Tech has dominated opponents as the 129-54-2 record indicates, a winning percentage of 70.5 percent. Since

Tech moved up to Division I-A in 1989, the Bulldogs have registered a mark of 67-28 at Joe Aillet Stadium, a winning percentage of about 70.5 percent. In that inaugural game against East Carolina at Joe Aillet Stadium, a young quarterback named Terry Bradshaw guided the Bulldogs to the victory as Tech fullback Buster Herren scored the first touchdown ever at the stadium on a two-yard run with 6:20 remaining in the second quarter. It was just the first of many memorable moments for Tech fans in Ruston. On two different occasions over the past 40-plus years, Tech has registered streaks of 18 straight wins at Joe Aillet Stadium. The first such streak started with a 23-0 win over UL-Monroe in the final game of the 1971 season and ended Coaching Records with a 49-20 win over at Joe Aillet Stadium Tennessee-Chattanooga g w L T Pct. in the fifth game of the Maxie lambright (1968-78) 49 37 11 1 .755 1975 season.

Included in that string of wins was a 31-30 victory over Colorado State on Nov. 17, 1990, that catapulted the Bulldogs into the 1990 Independence Bowl. Tech trailed 30-14 late in the third quarter before scoring 17 unanswered points, capped by Gene Johnson’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Slaughter with 2:14 to play. The Bulldog defense held the Rams to four and out on their final possession as a wild celebration ensued, which ultimately ended in the goal posts in the south end zone being torn down by Tech fans. One of the biggest individual matchups in the stadium’s history came on Sept. 5, 1998, when two future NFL quarterbacks squared off as Central Florida’s Daunte Culpepper led his team to a 64-30 win over Tech’s Tim Rattay and the Bulldogs. Culpepper passed for 370 yards and four scores while rushing for 69 yards and two more touchdowns while Rattay passed for 524 yards and three touchdowns.

The 2000 season saw a milestone reached at Joe Aillet Stadium as the Bulldogs under head coach Jack Bicknell recorded the 100th win in the facility’s history. True freshman quarterback Luke McCown tied an NCAA Division I freshman record by tossing six touchdowns in the milestone 48-14 victory over UL-Lafayette on Oct. 14, 2000. Joe Aillet Stadium hosted its first nationally televised game on Dec. 5, 2002, when ESPN came to town to produce Louisiana Tech’s game against Fresno State. Although Tech fell in the contest, it was another milestone for the program and the facility it has called home. The 2004 season opened with another nationally televised home game, as the Bulldogs defeated Nevada 38-21 Sept. 6 on ESPN2. This was just a preview of things to come during the season at Joe Aillet Stadium. Less than one month later, Tech fans were able to witness one of the greatest games in Joe Aillet Stadium history, as Louisiana Tech downed No. 17 Fresno State 28-21 on Oct. 2. Tech trailed 13-0 early in the second quarter before running back Ryan Moats and the Bulldog defense turned up their level of play. Moats rushed for 236 yards and four scores, including the gamewinner with just under four minutes to play, which was set up by an interception deep in Fresno State territory. The win was sealed when current Green Bay Packers star Tramon Williams intercepted Paul Pinegar with less than :30 remaining, starting a wild celebration that saw the goal posts in both end zones torn down. These games and many more are what have made Tech fans the real winners over the years. As the warm fall evenings approach and another year of Bulldog football begins, Joe Aillet Stadium will once again host some of the best college football the nation has to offer.

At the south end of Joe Aillet Stadium stands a bronze Bulldog statue named the Spirit of ‘88. The statue commemorates the 1988 Bulldog football team which blazed the path into Division I-A football for Louisiana Tech. That 1988 team had to endure one of the most difficult schedules in school history. In what was the nation’s 11th toughest schedule that year, the Bulldogs faced five I-A bowl teams including Houston, Florida State and Texas A&M. The results were as expected: losses like 60-0, 56-17 and 66-3 ... but as a team, the Bulldogs grew. Those experiences likely played a key role in Tech finishing 5-4-1 the following year, its first in I-A, and 8-3-1 in 1990’s Independence Bowl season. The statue, which every Tech player touches as he walks down the ramp before every home game, also brought good fortune to the Bulldogs at home. On Oct. 14, 1989, when it was unveiled, Tech proceeded to pummel a very good Northern Illinois team, 42-21. That was just the start of one of the best runs in Tech football history. Over the next four-plus seasons, home games were few and far between, but each one resulted in a win. The Bulldogs eventually reeled off 18 consecutive home victories, tying the alltime stadium record set by head coach Maxie Lambright’s great teams of the early

1970s. Some wins have been more magical than others. The endings to three of the biggest wins in school history have taken place in the south end zone ... almost as if the Spirit of ‘88 has played an integral role. In only Louisiana Tech’s second season in the Division I-A ranks, the Bulldogs trailed Colorado State 30-14 late in the third quarter and their bowl hopes looked bleak. However, 17 unanswered points later, Tech had rallied for a 31-30 win over the bowl-bound Rams to earn their own Independence Bowl berth. The winning touchdown pass from Gene Johnson to Bobby Slaughter in the final minutes came fittingly in the south end zone, just in front of the Spirit of ‘88. Eleven years later, Tech clinched a share of its first Western Athletic Conference title with a 48-42 win over Boise State at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the Broncos driving towards what looked like a game-winning score late in the contest, the Spirit of ‘88 magic struck once again. Ryan Dinwiddie’s potential game-winning touchdown pass bounced off the helmet of a Tech defender and high into the air before Bulldog defensive lineman Brandon Avance plucked it out of the air, giving Tech the victory. Some might say it’s a coincidence that the two biggest wins in the program’s Division I-A history had been decided in the south end zone

under the watchful eyes of the Spirit of ‘88. However, the third time proved it was more than just chance. On a warm Oct. 2 evening in 2004, Louisiana Tech found itself trailing No. 17 ranked Fresno State 21-20 late in the fourth quarter. Fresno State had the football and the momentum, trying to move out of its own end zone -- the south end zone -- against a Tech defense and its 12th man, or should we say Dawg. On third down Fresno State quarterback Paul Pinegar was intercepted by Byron Santiago who returned the football down to the 16-yard line. Two plays later, Ryan Moats gave Tech a 28-21 lead and the eventual win as he rushed eight yards to the right corner of the south end zone. The Bulldogs had defeated the 17thranked team in the nation. A Joe Aillet Stadium crowd of almost 20,000 celebrated wildly with the Tech players, coaches and the Spirit of ‘88. Some may say the powers of that bronze Bulldog are a fluke. Tech fans won’t agree. The numbers say 67 wins and just 28 losses since the Spirit of ‘88 was unveiled. So fluke or not, the Bulldogs will continue to touch it each home game and hope the wins continue.

2011 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Independence Stadium and Louisiana Tech have a long, successful history together as the Bulldogs have played 71 games in Shreveport, including four trips to the Independence Bowl. All-time the Bulldogs are 46-22-3 (.643) in games played in Independence Stadium. Northwestern State is the most common opponent for Tech in Shreveport as the two programs met 48 times with the Bulldogs claiming a 34-12-2 mark in those games. The Bulldogs defeated the Demons 24-0 in their first game ever played in Shreveport in 1916. Although the majority of the games that Tech has played in Shreveport came during the old State Fair Games against Northwestern State, starting in the late ’30s and ending in the late ’80s, Tech has played some other big-time college football games at the site. In the last two decades, Louisiana Tech has faced Northern Illinois (2008), Houston (1988), Maryland (1990), Baylor (1996), California (1997), Texas A&M (1999), Oklahoma State (2002) and Miami (2003) at Independence Stadium. Thrilling lastminute victories against California (41-34) and Oklahoma State (39-36) highlight the Bulldogs’ successful history in Shreveport. In all, Tech has played 19 different teams at Independence Stadium, and the Bulldogs have appeared in four Independence Bowls, beating Louisville 24-14 in 1977, losing 35-13 to East Carolina in 1978, tying Maryland 34-34 in 1990 and defeating Northern Illinois 17-10 in 2008. Louisiana Tech opened the 2003 season at Independence Stadium as the Bulldogs played host to five-time national champion Miami on Aug. 28, 2003, in a nationally televised game on ESPN, which saw a Louisiana Tech regular season home attendance record of 43,279.

Now in its 50th year of existence, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best intercollegiate competition. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success over the past decade. The WAC has sent a total of 35 teams to bowl games since 2001, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five teams. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games in three of the last five seasons including Hawai‘i’s appearance in the 2008 Sugar Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 28 seasons. Every current school in the WAC has competed in the NCAA Tournament since 1990. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003 including Fresno State’s College World Series victory in 2008. In women’s sports, Fresno State softball has competed in every NCAA Tournament ever held while Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three. In 2009, Hawai‘i made its fourth trip since 2000 to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four, and in 2010, the Rainbow Wahine earned a trip to the Softball College World Series. Current WAC alums have made their presence felt as well. David Carr (Fresno State) was the first player selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. Cheryl Ford (Louisiana Tech) was named the WNBA Rookie of the Year and helped the Detroit Shock win the league’s championship in 2003. In 2004, the United States’ softball team won the Olympic gold medal with former Fresno State players Laura Berg and Lovie Jung. Jeff Weaver (Fresno State) earned the win in the St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series clinching victory in 2006. Quarterback Colt Brennan (Hawai‘i) finished third in the 2007 Heisman Trophy voting, and in 2008, Natasha Kai (Hawai‘i) helped the United States to a gold medal in soccer at the Olympics in Beijing. In 2001, the WAC partnered with ESPN for coverage of football and basketball giving the conference national exposure from one of the most respected broadcast entities in the country. The WAC also officially added WAC.tv in 2006 to give fans streaming internet access to many of its postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, gymnastics, softball and baseball. The WAC is the sixth oldest among the nation’s 11 Division I-A conferences. Its history traces back to July 27, 1962, when the original six-team league of Arizona, Arizona State, Brigham Young, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming began competition. The first championship was held in November 1962, when Arizona won the men’s cross country title and New Mexico followed with the first WAC football title. Arizona finished second in the NCAA College World Series and, less than three years later, Arizona State claimed the league’s first NCAA title when the Sun Devils won the College World Series trophy. Fresno State was the last WAC school to earn an NCAA team title when it won the College World Series in 2008. Since 1962, several changes have occurred. UTEP and Colorado State became members in September 1967, while Arizona and Arizona State withdrew on June 30, 1978. The WAC then added San Diego State (1978), Hawai‘i (1979) and Air Force (1980). Before 1990, the WAC sponsored championships only in men’s sports. However, a merger with the High Country Athletic Conference formed a single conference under one administrative structure, and the 1990-91 athletic year was the first in which both men and women competed under the WAC name. Fresno State was added in 1992, and then in 1996, the women’s programs from Air Force and Hawai‘i along with six new schools (UNLV, Rice, San Jose State, SMU, TCU and Tulsa) came into the WAC. Air Force, Brigham Young, Colorado State, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming withdrew on June 30, 1999. Nevada (2000), Boise State (2001) and Louisiana Tech (2001) were added while TCU withdrew following the 2000-01 season. The current membership was established on July 1, 2005, when Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. For the

When Karl Benson was named the fifth commissioner in the history of the Western Athletic Conference on April 20, 1994, he brought with him a wealth of experience and a personal history of success to the position. Since that time, Benson not only has laid a strong foundation for the WAC’s future, he has also steered the conference through unsettled times as the league’s longest tenured commissioner. Through his leadership and vision, it didn’t take long for the WAC to regain its place among the nation’s top Division I conferences. Benson has spearheaded conference expansion three times over the past decade with the most recent additions of Denver, UTSA, Texas State and Seattle. Nationally, Benson has earned the respect of his peers after serving on the NCAA Management Council from 1999-2002, and a five-year term on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee from 2002-06. Benson hit the ground running when he was hired in 1994 and initiated several programs that improved the conference’s national position in virtually every category. He was instrumental in developing multi-year agreements with the Holiday Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Copper Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Silicon Valley Football Classic, GMAC Bowl, New Mexico Bowl and currently, the Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, Poinsettia Bowl and Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. In the summer of 2005, he implemented “Play Up” a new marketing campaign to improve the public and private perceptions of the WAC and its members through national, local and regional touch points. The conference officially added WAC.tv prior to the 2006-07 season, giving fans streaming video access to many of the postseason championships of the sports offered by the WAC. In 1995-96, the WAC signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN for the unprecedented live coverage of its basketball and football. Included in that deal was a women’s basketball contract, the first in conference history. In 2008, Benson negotiated an extension with ESPN that gave the WAC even more telecasts of its regular season and championship events. Benson came to the WAC after four successful years as the commissioner of the Mid-American Conference. There, he implemented several innovative projects and was instrumental in the formation of the Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to taking the reins of the MAC, Benson served on the NCAA staff for more than four years where he was the director of NCAA championships when selected as MAC commissioner. Benson joined the NCAA staff in January, 1986, as a compliance representative and was appointed assistant director of championships in June, 1987. He was promoted to director of championships in 1988. In that position, Benson actively supervised eight assistant directors in their administration of 68 NCAA championships. A native of the state of Washington, Benson graduated from high school in Pullman in 1970, attended Spokane Falls Community College and then received a bachelor of science degree in physical education from Boise State University in 1975. He has also completed course work toward his master’s degree in athletics administration at the University of Utah. Benson played baseball at both Spokane Falls Community College and Boise State University before serving as the baseball coach at Fort Steilacoom Community College in Tacoma, Wash., for eight years and as the director of athletics at Fort Steilacoom from 1979-84. From 1984-86, he was an assistant baseball coach and an administrative assistant in the athletics department at Utah. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Boise State in April of 2006. Benson was born on December 1, 1951 and has one daughter, Jessie.

SHREVEPORT, La. - Myke Compton scored two first half touchdowns and the Louisiana Tech defense held Grambling State to two field goals as the Bulldogs defeated the Tigers 20-6 in the debut of first year head coach Sonny Dykes at Independence Stadium Saturday night. Compton’s 1-yard plunge in the first quarter gave Tech a 7-0 lead and his 2-yard scamper early in the second quarter increased the Bulldog’s advantage to 14-3. Tech led 17-3 at the half before both teams traded field goals in an uneventful final 30 minutes of action. In the much-anticipated debut of Dykes and the advertised high-octane style offense, LA Tech (1-0) showed growing pains during its 2010 opener as the Bulldogs totaled only 336 yards of offense while converting only 4-of-13 third downs in the game. Early it appeared as Tech would easily pull away as the Bulldogs drove 69 yards on seven plays on its opening possession as Compton’s 1-yard plunge on third down and goal with 12:49 to play gave it the lead. Tennessee transfer Lennon Creer set up the score with a 37-yard burst up the middle before being hauled down on the Tigers 2-yard line by J. Powell. Three plays later Compton used a second and third effort to finally cross the goal line for the first score of the season for the Bulldogs. Matt Nelson’s extra point gave Tech the 7-0 lead. Grambling answered immediately, driving 58 yards on eight plays before Bulldog linebacker Jonathan Zeno sacked Tigers quarterback Anthony Carrothers on a third down play inside the red zone to stall the drive. Zoltan Riazzo nailed a 39-yard field goal with 8:48 to play to make the score 7-3. After empty possessions by both teams, Tech marched 80 yards on 12 plays to grab a 14-3 lead on Compton’s second score of the game. The final 25 yards came on the ground as Creer and Compton pounded the Tigers defense. Nelson converted on the extra point to make it 14-3. A three-and-out by GSU on its next possession led to a punt. However, the deep snap sailed over the punter’s head before he retrieved it on his goal line, dodged a Tech tackler and got off an off-balanced punt that officially traveled six yards. Despite the great field position, Tech managed only 17 yards on six plays before Nelson drilled a 39-yard field goal, making it 17-3 Tech. On the first play from scrimmage following the field goal, Bulldog defensive back Josh Victorian intercepted Carrothers on the Tigers 27 yard line and returned it to the 18. Tech drove down to the GSU five before a sevenyard sack of Ross Jenkins stalled the drive. Nelson then misfired on a 27-yard field goal attempt with 6:08 to play in the second quarter. Neither team threatened the rest of the half as Tech took its 14-point lead into the locker room. Grambling State took the second half kickoff and methodically marched down the field, covering 57 yards on 14 plays setting up Riazzo’s 34-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 17-6. The drive took 7:29 off the clock as half of the quarter was gone before Tech got its first offensive possession. Following an empty possession by the Bulldogs, Jenkins was pulled in favor of sophomore Colby Cameron. Jenkins finished the night completing 15-of-19 passes for 101 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Cameron performed admirably during the final quarter and a half, hitting on 8-of-12 passes for 95 yards. He spearheaded a 69 yard drive midway through the fourth quarter that brought Tech inside the GSU 10-yard line before his fourth and one pass fell incomplete behind his Bulldog target and Grambling State took over the football. Danny Reyes took over at quarterback for Carrothers early in the fourth quarter after Carrothers was sacked by Matt Broha, injuring the true freshman signal caller. Reyes took the Tigers on one final drive late in the game before his first down passes was batted up into the air and intercepted by Chad Boyd, who ran it back to the GSU side of the field with less than a minute to play. Creer led the Tech ground game with 69 yards on 17 carries while Ray Holley added 30 yards on five carries. In addition to his two touchdowns, Compton had 10 yards and four carries. Ten different Tech players caught a pass in the game led by red-shirt freshman Jacarri Jackson’s four catches for 27 yards. Adrien Cole led Tech with eight tackles while Jay Dudley, Broha, Mason Hitt and CJ Broades each totaled five. Broha recorded two sacks and a forced fumble in the game.

GAME 2

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Louisiana Tech battled toe-to-toe against Big 12 foe Texas A&M through two quarters Saturday night, but in what felt like a blink of an eye, a sequence of four plays including one untimed down - proved to be the separator. With Tech trailing 14-10 and driving inside the Aggies red zone with less than 30 seconds to play in the second quarter, the proverbial tide turned - into a mini-tidal wave as Texas A&M road the momentum into a 48-16 win at Kyle Field before 77,579 fans. A 44-yard touchdown pass on an untimed, final play of the half and a 67-yard Barry Sanders-like scamper on the second play of the third quarter allowed Texas A&M to push a four-point lead out to 28-10 in a matter of less than 90 seconds off the game clock. Although the Bulldogs kept fighting over the final 28 minutes, they never recovered as Tech fell to 1-1 on the season while the Aggies improved to 2-0. The Aggies win didn’t come easily early. With less than a minute to play in the opening half, the Bulldogs were driving for a potential halftime lead. With Tech facing a first down and 10 on the Texas A&M 16-yard line late in the half, Cameron fumbled when sacked from behind and the Aggies recovered on their own 24-yard line with only 18 seconds to play. Instead of being satisfied with a four-point halftime lead, Johnson scrambled 17 yards to the 41yard line with nine seconds to play. On the next play, Johnson threw what appeared to be a half-ending interception to Tech linebacker Adrien Cole who returned it to the Aggies 34 as time ran out. However, a personal foul penalty on Tech safety CJ Broades on a hit to the head of the intended receiver on the interception gave A&M the ball back on the Bulldogs 44-yard line. It also gave the Aggies an untimed down. On the next play, Johnson rolled left and heaved a pass high into the air which was caught by Aggies Uzoma Nwachukwu amidst four Tech defenders for a 44-yard score and a 21-10 Texas A&M lead. On just the second play following intermission, Aggies running back Christine Michael appeared to be corralled five yards behind the line of scrimmage but somehow kept his balance, spun out of the crowd and dashed 67 yards down the A&M sideline before being hauled down by Josh Victorian inside the Bulldogs 10-yard line. Three plays later, Johnson found Jeff Fuller for a 3-yard toss in the back left corner of the endzone for a 28-10 lead. After the next Aggies possession led to a 40-yard field goal by Randy Bullock to push the advantage to 31-10, Tech answered with an impressive five-play, 74-yard drive that ended with a 35-yard scoring strike from junior college transfer Tarik Hakmi to tight end Eric Harper with 6:12 to play in the third quarter. It was Harper’s first career touchdown reception and Hakmi’s first career scoring pass. Matt Nelson’s extra point was wide and the lead was 31-16 but that was as close as the Bulldogs would get. A&M then opened up the fourth quarter with another scoring drive, this one capped by a Johnson 1-yard pass to Nwachukwu and a 45-16 lead. Johnson ended the night completing 25-of-38 passes for 349 yards and three scores. A 22-yard field goal by Bullock at the 5:44 mark of the fourth quarter ended the night’s scoring for both teams as Tech fell to 0-10 all-time against the Aggies. In a first half that was dominated by giveaways - the two teams combined for eight turnovers - Tech had opportunity after opportunity to take the lead after 30 minutes. However, two fumbles in the final three minutes of the half inside the red zone and an untimely penalty on what appeared to be the final play of the half cost the Bulldogs. Tech took an early lead on a 37-yard field goal by Nelson at the 2:58 mark of the first quarter, capping a seven play drive that covered 38 yards. After A&M answered with two touchdowns - the first on a 3-yard run by Cyrus Gray and the second on a 10-yard pass from Johnson to Ryan Tannehill - Tech recovered a muffed punt on the Aggies one-yard line. Following three straight runs by Hakmi netted zero yards, Tech called back-to-back timeouts before sending the offensive unit back out on the field. On fourth and goal, Hakmi faked a handoff to Lennon Creer and followed the bruising running back off of right tackle for the score. Hakmi, who platooned with Cameron all night, completed 6-of-8 passes for 93 yards and one passing touchdown while rushing 10 times for 10 yards and one score. Cameron was 15-of-31 for 115 yards and two interceptions while rushing for 21 yards.

RUSTON, La. - Ricky Dobbs passed for a career-high 219 yards and one touchdown and led Navy to a 37-23 come-from-behind victory over Louisiana Tech before 23,122 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium on Saturday night. Despite suffering an ankle injury mid-way through the third quarter, Dobbs directed three touchdown scoring drives over the final two periods of the contest as the Midshipmen (2-1) offense controlled the game grinding out more than 22 minutes in the second half. This after Louisiana Tech appeared to have found its groove in the opening 30 minutes by recording more than 300 yards of total offense and leading 23-16 at the break. After Dobbs directed an impressive nine-play, 97-yard drive on Navy’s opening possession which was capped by a four-yard run by Mike Stukel, Tech got a pair of field goals from sophomore Matt Nelson to cut the deficit 7-6. The Bulldogs then took its first lead of the game as Lyle Fitte recorded his first career rushing touchdown on a two-yard plunge with 9:08 to play in the second quarter. Nelson’s extra point gave Tech a 13-7 advantage. After Navy tied the game at 13-13 on a 25-yard pass from Dobbs to John Howell (extra point was missed), Tech responded with a third Nelson field goal - this time for 42 yards away to grab a 16-13 advantage with 5:09 to play before the half. A Joe Buckley 37-yard kick tied the score with 3:18 to go in the half, before Colby Cameron led Tech on a nine-play, 71-yard drive and a 23-16 lead as he hit Ikharo Taulib on an eight-yard scoring toss with only 29 seconds to play. Originally the play was ruled as an incomplete pass but instant replay showed Taulib’s foot had landed in-bounds on the near side of the south endzone and Tech took the momentum and the seven-point lead into the half. Cameron led Tech to 328 yards and 18 first downs in the opening half as he finished the game with career-highs in completions (31), attempts (43), and yards (251). Tech’s offense and defense both looked a step slow in the third and fourth quarters as turnovers spelled doom. After Navy took the opening kickoff and drove 72 yards on 12 plays to tie the game at 23-23 on a Dobbs 1-yard run, Tech took over on its own 47-yard line after a 41-yard kickoff return by Ryan Williams. However, on a third down and four play, freshman Jacarri Jackson recorded a four-yard catch for the first down but fumbled as Navy recovered. Navy then returned the favor as Tech defensive back Chad Boyd made a one-handed, acrobatic interception on the Bulldogs one-yard line to stall the Midshipmen’s attempt to take the lead. After a first down run of 36 yards by Lennon Creer got Tech out of the shadows of its own goal line, Cameron underthrew an open Richie Casey as Navy’s Kevin Edwards intercepted him and took over on the 46. Dobbs then began driving the Midshipmen again before leaving the game with an ankle injury. Kriss Proctor then took over and finished the final 37 yards of the drive, including covering the final seven yards on a keeper as Navy led 30-23 with 31 seconds to play in the third quarter. The only score of the fourth quarter was a 17-yard burst up the middle by Navy fullback Vince Murray with 11:09 to play to up the advantage to 37-23. After its impressive opening half, Tech’s offense managed only three first downs and 77 yards after the break while Navy recorded 17 first downs and 270 yards. Creer led Tech’s ground attack with 90 yards on 13 carries while Ikharo recorded career-highs with 10 receptions for 88 yards and one score. Solomon Randle registered 11 tackles while Adrien Cole added nine and Boyd eight.

GAME 4

RUSTON, La. - Three fourth-quarter turnovers doused Louisiana Tech’s hopes of a comefrom-behind victory as Southern Mississippi held on to defeat the Bulldogs 13-12 before 22,344 rain-soaked fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday night. Tech (1-3) used a 19-yard touchdown pass from Tarik Hakmi to Richie Casey with 11:07 to play in the final quarter and a safety after a blocked punt by Rufus Porter with 10:01 to play to close a 10-point deficit down to 13-12. However, a fumble by Ahmad Paige inside the Golden Eagles 40-yard line with less than nine minutes to play and a Hakmi interception on a throw into double coverage with less than three minutes to play sealed Tech’s fate as the Bulldogs fell for the third straight time. After the two teams played to a 3-3 tie in a first half that saw nine punts, Southern Miss took the opening kickoff and drove 60 yards on six plays and took the lead on a 23-yard strike from Austin Davis to Kelvin Bolden. Danny Hrapmann’s extra point with 12:59 to play in the third quarter gave the Golden Eagles a 10-3 lead. Offensively, Tech ran eight plays in the third quarter for negative five yards while USM (3-1) controlled the clock running 26 plays for 131 yards and holding onto the football for almost 12 minutes. USM’s most impressive drive of the night took over eight minutes off the clock as Hrapmann’s 37-yard field goal capped an 18-play, 8:10 drive and gave the Eagles a 13-3 lead with 3:00 to play. Down 10 heading into the fourth quarter, Tech mounted a seven-play, 84-yard drive in heavy rainfall highlighted by a 36-yard pass play to Lyle Fitte who broke a couple of tackles down near the line of scrimmage and raced inside Southern Miss territory. After Hakmi recorded a first down and a fourth-down and 1-play, he found Casey for his first career touchdown reception. After a three and out by the Eagles on the ensuing possession forced a punt, Porter came free and blocked the punt into the USM endzone. The red-shirt freshman had an opportunity to fall on the ball in the back of the endzone but it squirted away as USM batted out of the back of the endzone for a safety. USM led 13-12. After receiving the free kick, Tech drove to the USM 40-yard line but on a second-and-three play, Paige caught a swing pass but fumbled as he was hit by Deddrick Jones as the Eagles recovered on their own 32-yard line. “You go down one point with excellent field position and then we turned the ball over,” said Dykes. “That is extremely discouraging. Our turnovers have come at incredibly inopportune times this season.” Tech got one final shot after the Bulldogs defense forced a punt with less than four minutes to play. After three straight plays netted 40 yards, Hakmi launched an ill-advised pass into coverage as Deron Wilson came away with the interception. Hakmi, who came into the game for starter Colby Cameron after the first two possessions of the contest, ended the night completing 22-of-35 passes for 262 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. Ten different Bulldogs recorded at least one reception led by Phillip Livas (5-47), Carey Fortson (3-66) and Paige (3-41). USM ran out the final 2:31 of the game clock for the win. USM outgained Tech 425-309 and held a significant advantage in time of possession at 38:25 to 21:35. Tech’s defense was led by Jay Dudley’s 13 tackles while CJ Broades (9 tackles), Adrien Cole (8 tackles), and Shakeil Lucas (8 tackles) also had productive nights.

HONOLULU, Hawai’i - Bryant Moniz passed for 532 yards and four scores to lead Hawaii to a 41-21 win over Louisiana Tech in the Western Athletic Conference opener for both teams at Aloha Stadium late Saturday night. With the loss, Tech fell to 1-4 on the season and has now lost nine straight road games dating back to a victory at New Mexico State in 2008. Hawaii, who entered the game ranked No. 1 in the country in passing, improved to 3-2 on the year. The Warriors used a prolific passing attack and a stellar defensive effort over the first quarter and a half to jump out to a 24-0 lead before Bulldog head coach Sonny Dykes went to the bench to senior signal caller Ross Jenkins, who sparked the LA Tech offense. Jenkins, who hadn’t taken a snap from center since the third quarter of the season opening win over Grambling State, promptly led the Bulldogs on a 10-play, 80-yard drive which was capped by a 32-yard scoring strike to Richie Casey as the deficit was cut to 24-7 with 2:49 to play in the second quarter. After the Bulldogs defense recovered a fumble with less than a minute to play, Jenkins almost led Tech to its second score of the half thanks to some creative play calling late. With only three seconds to play in the half and the football on the Tech 42-yard line, Jenkins completed a short pass to Taulib Ikharo who pitched the football to Phillip Livas, who then shoveled it to Lennon Creer who scampered down the sideline before being pushed out at the UH 20 by the final Warriors defender in the vicinity. Although Tech trailed 24-7, the Bulldogs had some momentum and confidence heading into the locker room. Jenkins and Co. then picked up where it left off in the third quarter as the Bulldogs drove 75 yards on 11 plays on its opening possession to cut the lead to 24-13 on Ray Holley’s one-yard plunge with 11:59 to play. Matt Nelson’s extra point made the score 24-14. The touchdown marked the first timeTech had scored on the opening possession of the second half this season. “I thought we did a pretty good job of coming back and giving ourselves a chance in the second half,” Dykes said. “We got down so fast and played so poorly early in the ball game. Our kids really played hard and had a chance to get back in the game. “We just couldn’t quite make a play or two--couldn’t convert a fourth down when we had a chance, got a turnover and couldn’t do much with it. That’s just a sign of our inconsistencies that’s kind of been plaguing us all year. But I thought our kids really played hard, especially in the second half. It’s been a long trip, and I thought they gave great effort across the board tonight.” However, Tech’s momentum was short-lived as Moniz orchestrated a 5-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a 19-yard touchdown pass to Greg Salas as UH upped the lead back to 31-14. Tech would get no closer than 34-21 on a Jenkins eight-yard toss to Tim Molten late in the third quarter. Moniz capped the scoring with a 29-yard scoring toss to Salas, who broke two tackles around the 20-yard line and then raced untouched into the end zone. UH receiver Kealoha Pilares set a program record with 18 catches on the night for 204 yards and two scores while Salas added 10 receptions for 197 yards and two scores. “I think (Hawai`i’s) receivers are outstanding,” Dykes said. “That’s as good a group of receivers as I’ve seen. They’re fun players to watch, their quarterback’s really good. When they’re operating at this level like they were tonight, they’re going to be a very difficult team to beat, especially over here. They play well at home. If they can continue to execute at this level, they’ll give people headaches.” Jenkins finished the night completing 19-of-26 passes for 215 yards, two scores and one interception. Casey led Tech’s receiving corps with a career-high eight receptions for 98 yards and one score. Myke Compton rushed eight times for 58 yards while Creer added 12 carries for 57 yards in the game. Chad Boyd and Jay Dudley led the Tech defense with seven tackles each followed by Tank Calais and Olajuwon Paige with six stops each. Adrien Cole and Matt Broha each registered one sack while Broha added a fumble recovery.

GAME 6

RUSTON, La. - Lennon Creer rushed for a career-high 120 yards and two touchdowns and the Louisiana Tech defense dominated for four quarters to lead the Bulldogs to a 24-6 win over Utah State Saturday afternoon before 16,073 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium. While Creer was spearheading a Bulldog rushing attack that totaled 278 yards on the ground, the LA Tech defense stifled quarterback Diondre Borel and the Aggies offense holding Utah State to only 195 total yards and a pair of Peter Caldwell field goals. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Bulldogs, who improved to 2-4 on the year (1-1 WAC) heading into next week’s homecoming match-up against Idaho. Kickoff time is slated for 3 p.m. The storyline for the win was Tech’s defense which was much maligned following last weekend’s performance that saw Hawaii quarterback Bryant Moniz throw for more than 500 yards and four scores. Saturday was different. Utah State, which was coming off an impressive 31-16 win over Brigham Young last weekend, failed to find the endzone through four quarters. Tech forced seven punts in the game and with the contest still in reach heading into the fourth stanza, the Bulldogs buckled down - holding the Aggies to only 12 net yards on nine offensive plays over their final three possessions. The Bulldogs corralled Borel all afternoon as the versatile senior signal caller managed only 113 total yards of offense, rushing 10 times for 40 yards and completing 14-of-23 passes for 73 yards. Borel’s longest completion on the afternoon was 11 yards. While the Tech defense was recording it best performance of the year, the Bulldog offense wasn’t far behind. Utilizing the “Wild Dog” formation, Tech rushed for a season-high 278 yards and averaged 5.9 yards per carry. Although Ross Jenkins got the start for Tech - the senior gave the Bulldogs an early lead with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Tim Molten 4:53 to play in the first quarter - , Dykes turned to a plethora of “quarterbacks” as Molten and Creer took snap after snap and used some solid blocking and some misdirection to baffle the Aggies defense. Creer’s two-yard run with 7:30 to play in the second quarter came out of the Wild Dog formation and gave Tech a 14-0 advantage. It capped a eight-play, 62-yard drive that was highlighted by 20-yard pass from Jenkins to Molten that took the ball deep inside Utah State territory. Utah State finally got on the scoreboard late in the second quarter on a 40-yard field goal by Caldwell which capped a 10-play, 47-yard drive. It was one of only three drives that Utah State had all afternoon that covered more than 25 yards. Tech answered with a Matt Nelson 38-yard field goal right before the half as Tech took a 17-3 lead into the locker room. The second half turned into more of the same for Utah State. After taking their first possession of the second half and driving 73 yards and kicking a 22-yard field goal - Tech stopped USU on a third down and three play from the five-yard line - , the Aggies offense was done for the day. Utah State’s final four possessions following the field goal netted a grand total of 32 yards and only one first down. Meanwhile, the Tech offense continued to grind away with the run game and a timely passing attack that saw the Bulldogs record 27 first downs and hold onto the football for more almost 21 minutes in the final two quarters. Jenkins, making his first start since the Grambling State game, completed 20-of-32 passes for 149 yards and one score. In addition to Creer’s impressive day on the ground, Molton added a career-high 93 yards on eight carries while Myke Compton chipped in with 57 yards on 12 carries. Defensively, Adrien Cole led Tech with a career-high tying 12 tackles, including seven that came on the first offensive possession of the game for the Aggies. Matt Broha recorded four tackles, including two tackles for loss, and his 11th career sack which put him in the Top 10 in the Tech record books. IK Enemkpali added his first two career sacks for the Bulldogs as well.

RUSTON, La. - Behind career performances from Ross Jenkins and Lennon Creer, Louisiana Tech found its offensive rhythm Saturday in a 48-35 homecoming victory over Idaho before 19,750 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium. Jenkins torched the Vandals (3-3, 0-1 WAC) for a career-high 422 yards through the air, completing 31-of-44 passes and three touchdowns. The senior, who also rushed eight times for 34 yards and another score, didn’t throw an interception in the game. While Jenkins and nine Tech receivers were doing their jobs through the air, Creer was chewing up the Vandals on the ground to a tune of a career-high 179 yards and two scores. As a team, the Bulldogs rushed for 261 yards and averaged almost five yards a carry. “It felt good to get the second home win,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “We knew it was going to be a hard-fought game. Idaho is a really good football team. “I’m really proud of our team. Two weeks ago, people were writing us off, but we’ve got a lot of fight in us. Our players never had a sense of panic.” As a team Tech racked up 683 yards of total offense, the fourth most in Bulldog history. It marked the first time since 2003 that a Bulldog team had eclipsed the 600-yard plateau (623 against Hawaii). Jenkins 422-yard performance was also the first time a Tech quarterback had passed for more than 400 since Luke McCown torched Hawaii for 403 yards on Oct. 18, 2003. It was also the 30th 400-yard passing performance in Bulldog history. With Tech trailing 14-10 with less than a minute to play before the half, Dykes opted to pass on an opportunity for a 49-yard Matt Nelson field goal on a fourth-down and nine play with 38 seconds to play. Instead Jenkins dropped back and under an all-out blitz, hit Ahmad Paige for a touchdown and a 17-14 Tech halftime lead. “I felt like that was critical,” Dykes said. “Ross did a great job of staying in the pocket and giving Ahmad a chance to get it.” The score seemed to ignite the Bulldogs heading into the second half as Tech came out in the third quarter and scored three touchdowns. Jenkins opened the third quarter with a four-yard run with 11:15 to play that capped a nine-play, 45-yard drive. Ten minutes later, Jenkins struck again through the air as he hit Paige for a 7-yard score on a pass into the flat as Paige broke a tackle and weaved his way into the endzone for a 31-14 lead. The score capped an impressive 10-play, 72-yard drive. Idaho answered quickly though as on the first play from scrimmage following the ensuing kickoff Vandals quarterback Nathan Enderle hit Justin Veltung on a 76-yard scoring toss down the left sideline, pulling the Vandals to within 10 points. However, once again Jenkins and the Bulldogs had the answer. After Phillip Livas mishandled the kickoff and Tech took over at its own seven-yard line, Jenkins and Creer drove Tech to the 48-yard line. On a first down and 10-play, Jenkins capitalized on a free play as hit found Livas for a 52-yard strike as the defensive offside penalty was declined. Tech led 38-21 after three quarters. Livas was just one of a number of Bulldog receivers who had a big day, including Richie Casey who totaled career highs with nine receptions for 117 yards. “Everybody is more relaxed and has a better feel for the offense,” Casey said. “We’re playing like we know how. As the season goes on, you learn as you play. It’s going to continue. As long as we keep working on details, like coach Franklin says, when it happens, it’s going to happen.” Idaho never pulled any closer than 10 points in the final quarter as Nelson 39-yard field goal and a Creer 1-yard plunge ended the Bulldogs scoring. “We didn’t play well; they did ... bottom line,” said Vandals head coach Robb Akey. “They played better than we did. We gave ourselves opportunities, but we didn’t capitalize. Louisiana Tech played a better game than we did today.”

GAME 8

BOISE, Idaho - Two turnovers and three empty trips inside the 10-yard line were too much to overcome as Louisiana Tech fell 49-20 to second-ranked Boise State (7-0, 3-0 WAC) before 32,026 fans at Bronco Stadium Tuesday night. Tech (3-5, 2-2 WAC) trailed 28-7 at the half but a touchdown early in the third quarter on a 23-yard pass from Ross Jenkins to Phillip Livas cut the deficit to 28-13. Matt Nelson’s extra point was wide right. On the ensuing kickoff the Bulldogs recovered a BSU fumble and drove down to the Broncos’ nine-yard line. However, a fourth down and two pass play fell incomplete giving the football back to Boise State. It was the first of three second half trips inside the Broncos 10-yard line where Tech would fail to score. Following the turnover on downs, Boise State promptly drove 91 yards on eight plays, the final 26 coming on a busted play where Broncos running back Jeremy Avery fumbled a fake handoff out of the wildcat formation, picked it up and then ran around the left end untouched for the score. After Tech running back Myke Compton fumbled on the first play from scrimmage after the ensuing kickoff, Boise State took only six plays to march 34 yards and increase the advantage to 42-13 on a seven-yard pass play from wide receiver Austin Pettis to quarterback Kellen Moore. The Bulldogs fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Boise State began marching again before linebacker Solomon Randle intercepted Moore’s pass - only the second interception of the season against the Broncos signal caller. It was Randle’s first career interception. Tech then drove down to the Boise State two-yard line before stalling again as two runs and two incomplete passes failed to crack the endzone as Boise State took over on its own three yard line. Five plays later, Martin scored on a 20-yard run as the score increased to 49-13. Creer capped the scoring with a 25-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds remaining in the game where he broke two tackles before rumbling into the endzone. The run capped the third straight 100-yard rushing performance by Creer, who ran for 149 yards and two scores on a career-high 35 carries. The 35 carries tied for the seventh most in a single game in Tech history and the most since Ryan Moats carried 38 times against Hawaii in 2004. Creer led a Bulldog offense that ran 89 offensive plays, registered 25 first downs and 394 total yards of offense against the nation’s top ranked defense that came into the game allowing only 210 yards and 12 points a game. Jenkins was solid behind center, completing 24-of-39 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown while completing at least one pass to 10 different receivers. For the third time in four starts this year, Jenkins didn’t throw an interception. Defensively, Tech held tough against the nation’s third ranked offense, allowing 468 yards - including 163 yards on the ground and 305 through the air. Boise State entered the game averaging more than 525 yards per game and 48 points. Moore completed 20-of-28 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns while Doug Martin rushed 21 times for 150 yards and two scores. Adrien Cole led Tech with 12 tackles while Matt Broha and Jonathan Zeno each recorded sacks. Boise State entered the game having allowed only one sack all season long.

RUSTON, La. - Robbie Rouse rushed for 286 yards and one touchdown and Ryan Colburn tossed three touchdowns to lead Fresno State to a 40-34 win over Louisiana Tech before 17,051 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday afternoon. Behind a rushing attack that totaled 300 yards, Fresno State (6-2, 3-1 WAC) dominated possession of the football all afternoon as the California-based Bulldogs held onto the ball for more than 41 minutes compared to Louisiana Tech’s 19 minutes. “It was a tough game today; a disappointing loss,” saidTech head coach Sonny Dykes. “We did not play well on either side of the football. I’m really surprised that we had a chance to win as poorly as we played.” Tech (3-6, 2-3 WAC) jumped out to an early 14-0 lead less than four minutes into the contest. The Bulldogs struck first on a 28-yard scoring toss from Ross Jenkins to Taulib Ikharo, capping a six play, 48-yard drive as Matt Nelson’s extra point made the score 7-0. After a fumble recovery by Mason Hitt on a sack by Jay Dudley of Colburn,Tech took over on the Fresno State 43-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Jenkins threw a lateral to Richie Casey in the right flat who then turned back and threw back across the field to Jenkins who ran 42 yards before fumbling on the one-yard line. However, Ikharo recovered the fumble in the endzone for Tech giving the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead. After Fresno State cut the lead to 14-7 on a Colburn six-yard pass to Jamel Hamler with 6:52 to play in the opening quarter, Tech marched again down to the FSU 24-yard line. A fourth down and two play was snuffed by the FSU defense as Pat Hill and Co. took over with 4:18 to play in the quarter. Tech’s offense would struggle after the failed conversion, not recording another first down until midway through the third quarter. Fresno State’s Kevin Goessling hit a 49-yard field goal with 9:09 to play in the second quarter as Tech led 14-10 at the break. After Fresno State took a 17-14 lead on a Colburn 10-yard pass to Hamler,Tech reclaimed the lead as Jenkins found Ikharo for a 20-yard strike with 7:11 to play in the third quarter and a 21-17 Bulldog lead. Fresno State then scored 17 unanswered points to begin the fourth quarter, the last coming on a 33-yard touchdown pass to Hamler (his third of the game) as FSU led 33-21 with only 4:10 to play. However, on the ensuing kickoff Phillip Livas fielded the ball on the Tech five-yard line, faked the reverse and then raced 95-yards almost untouched to the endzone to make the score 33-28. The return was Livas’ seventh kickoff/punt return of his career, moving him to within one of the all-time NCAA Division I record shared by five other individuals (the last being CJ Spillers of Clemson). The Bulldog defense then forced a Fresno State punt as Tech took over on its own 32-yard line with 3:06 to play. After a five-yard carry by Lennon Creer on first down, Jenkins tried to go downfield but was intercepted by Fresno State’s Desia Dunn who returned the ball to midfield. “I thought we had made more progress,” Dykes said. “For us to play the way we did this late in the season is really disappointing.” Rouse then raced 51-yards untouched for a score to up the FSU lead to 40-28 with 2:20 to play. “We gave up a lot of big plays,” Dykes said. “We knew they were going to run the football; that is what they do. But if we don’t go three and out six or seven times on offense, ...” LA Tech would not go quietly though as Jenkins then orchestrated a seven-play, 67-yard drive as he found Casey in the left corner of the endzone for a 19-yard touchdown with 1:12 to play in the game. Nelson’s extra point was blocked as LA Tech trailed 40-34. Tech’s onside kick was recovered by Fresno State, who then ran out the clock. Creer was held in check all afternoon, totaling only 56 yards on 17 carries. Jenkins completed 16-of-30 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns. Dudley led Tech defensively with a career-high 18 tackles while Adrien Cole (11 tackles), Chad Boyd (11 tackles) and Javontay Crowe (10 tackles) all eclipsed double digits. Fresno State ran 89 offensive plays to LA Tech’s 55.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Phillip Livas scored on a 62-yard reverse run with less than five minutes left in the game and then scored again on a direct snap nine-yard run with 1:31 remaining as Louisiana Tech New Mexico Louisiana Tech recorded its first road win in two years with a 41-20 victory at New Mexico State. vs. State University Bulldogs Livas recorded 84 rushing yards on five carries and 29 receiving yards on four catches while Aggies Lennon Creer ran the ball 17 times for 107 yards and another score. Louisiana Tech (4-6, 3-3 WAC) outgained the Aggies (2-8, 1-5 WAC) 426-366 en route to the win. “It was a good win and hard fought,” said Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “I thought New Mexico State played well. We had a hard time getting pressure on their quarterback but it was a good win for us. We stopped them when we needed to and we made a big third down conversion when we needed to late in the ballgame.” New Mexico State kept close to Louisiana Tech most of the game and pulled within a touchdown with 6:14 left in the game off of Tyler Stampler’s 31-yard field goal but it was Livas’ long reverse run for a touchdown that decided the game. “That was huge,” said Dykes, who recorded his first road win as a head coach. “We felt like we could get a first down at the very least but anytime Phillip [Livas] gets the ball in the open field he has the possibility to take it the distance. He does what he does and he made a big play for us at a critical point in the game.” On the ensuing kickoff New Mexico State fumbled the ball and Justin Goodman recovered to give Tech a short field at the NMSU 37-yard line. The Bulldogs advanced the ball to the Aggie nine-yard line before Livas ran the ball in on a direct snap play in Tech’s “WildDawg” offensive formation.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Phillip Livas tied an NCAA record and Lennon Creer ran for a careerhigh 252 yards as Louisiana Tech held on for a 45-38 shootout win at San Jose State Saturday evening. Livas, who had two returns for a touchdown called back at the same stadium two years ago, ran back a punt 88-yards for a touchdown for his eighth career return for a score, tying a mark set by five other players most recently Clemson’s C.J. Spiller (2006-09). Meanwhile Creer was the workhorse of the Louisiana Tech (5-6, 4-3 WAC) offense, becoming the first LA Tech player since Ryan Moats in 2004 to rush for over 200 yards in a game. With the win, Tech guaranteed a .500 finish or better in conference play for the third time in four years. Despite Louisiana Tech’s pass defense struggling throughout most of the game, it was the secondary that sealed the win. Chad Boyd’s interception with Tech up by one score and 12 seconds remaining in the game sealed a shootout win for the Bulldogs. Boyd, who led the Tech defense with seven total tackles over San Jose (1-11, 0-7 WAC), recorded his fourth interception of the season. “I thought it was a good win and we played hard,” said Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “We told our guys all week that we were going to have to play for 60 minutes and that’s what we had to do. We knew it was going to be tough coming out west and playing them. San Jose State is a team that has been playing better as they season has progressed. I’m proud of our team for making plays down the stretch. We really answered the bell when needed.” Most of Creer’s 252 yards came in the first half as a he churned out 203 yards over the first 30 minutes of the game. The Tatum, Texas native ran for three scores in the game “Lennon ran really hard in the first half,” said Dykes. “Tony Franklin did a good job of making adjustments after San Jose State showed us a different look at the start of the game. We did some things that we hadn’t done this year and our offensive line gave Creer some good running lanes. He ran hard and broke tackles tonight.” Livas’ 88-yard punt return for a touchdown marked Tech’s only score in the third quarter as San Jose’s offense keyed in on Tech’s running game and allowed the Spartans to keep in the game. The return of 88 yards marks the third-longest punt return in school history and a career-best mark for Livas. Ross Jenkins was 13-for-29 with 105 passing yards and two interceptions as Tech’s passing game struggled against a tough Spartan secondary. Opposite of that, San Jose’s passing game was on fire as quarterback Jordan La Secla was 35-for-65 for 496 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. Louisiana Tech returns to action on Dec. 4 as the Bulldogs host No. 19 Nevada at Joe Aillet Stadium for a chance to become bowl eligible.

Livas finished the game with 162 kickoff return yards. He ends his career with 2,758 kickoff return yards, which ranks first in Tech history and fell just 24 yards short of the Western Athletic Conference record of 2,782 by Cedric Johnson of UTEP.

GAME 12

RUSTON - Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick rushed for 155 yards and three touchdowns while Vai Taua added 162 yards and two scores to lead the 14th ranked Wolf Pack to a 35-17 win over Louisiana Tech before 18,562 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the victory, the Wolf Pack (12-1, 7-1 WAC) wrapped up a share of the 2010 Western Athletic Conference championship title with Hawaii and Boise State while Louisiana Tech (5-7, 4-4) came up one game short in pursuit of its second bowl appearance in the last three years. Nevada led 21-17 early in the fourth quarter when Kaepernick made the play of the game with a Houdini-like escape of a would-be sack on a fourth-down-and-nine-play from the Tech 28-yard line. With the Bulldogs blitz surrounding Kaepernick about 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage, the elusive signal caller escaped the grasp of a Tech defender, took off down the left sideline and then cut back to the middle of the field and raced virtually untouched into the end zone. The score was the 59th career rushing touchdown of Kaepernick’s career, tying him with former Nebraska quarterback Eric Crouch for the all-time NCAA Division I lead. “I thought we did some good things in the first half, but in the second half they just lined up and whipped us,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes.”That’s what great players do; they make great players. He’s hard to tackle. He made good plays. He’s a good football player.” The touchdown capped an 11-play, 73-yard yard drive and not only gave the Wolf Pack an 11-point lead at 28-17, but seemed to take the entire life out of the Louisiana Tech sideline and the Joe Aillet Stadium crowd. Any realistic chance of a Tech comeback was severely crippled with the Bulldog offense went three-and-out on its next possession, forcing a punt. Nevada then took little time scoring again, as Taua scored his second touchdown of the day on a six-yard run that finished off a six-play, 80-yard drive that took only 2:37 off the clock. Tech opened the game strong as the Bulldogs marched 79 yards on nine plays and took a 7-0 advantage on a 20-yard scoring toss from Ross Jenkins to Eric Harper with 11:16 to play in the first quarter. The score remained 7-0 until early in the second quarter when Nevada tied the game on a Taua oneyard plunge at the 13:00 minute mark. Tech answered the score with a 12-play, 74-yard drive that took 3:59 off the clock as Jenkins gave the Bulldogs a 14-7 lead on a quarterback sneak from one yard out. Kaepernick then directed another impressive drive as Nevada went 83 yards on 14 plays and tied the game with a five-yard run by the senior quarterback. The Bulldogs had an opportunity to make a big play and take a halftime lead as senior wide receiver Phillip Livas took a snap out of the Wild Dog formation, raced over the left side and down the sideline for what appeared would be a 67-yard score. However, Livas just did step out of bounds at the Tech 42-yard line and the Bulldogs were unable to score as the two teams went into the halftime locker room tied at 14-14. Nevada came out in the second half and converted a couple of third down conversions on their opening drive before taking a 21-14 lead on a Kaepernick 1-yard score. After Matt Nelson’s 25-yard field goal at the 3:51 mark of the third quarter cut the Nevada lead to 21-17, the Wolf Pack turned to its ground game to control the football and the game. Nevada registered 247 of its 360 yards rushing in the second half. “We didn’t tackle in the second half like we needed to. We didn’t play at the level in the second half like we should have,” Dykes said. “This program is the type of program that we expect to go to bowl games. I’ve been proud of some of the things our players have done, and we’ve had some seniors that have done some great things. You always want to play your best and as a coach when you team doesn’t play their best, you’re disappointed. We’ve got some good guys coming back next year so we will go back to work on Monday. We’ve got to learn and expect to win next season.”
