LouisiAnA tech’s football program has experienced numerous highs during the course of its 100-plus year history, claiming 22 conference titles, numerous bowl berths and a plethora of All-Americans and NFL players. From the very first win in the program’s history (a 6-0 victory over LSU in 1904) to winning the 2001 Western Athletic Conference title in the first year as a member of the league, Louisiana Tech football has always made its fans proud. And since making the move from I-AA to I-A in 1989, Louisiana Tech has proven time after time it belongs among the big boys of college football defeating the likes of Alabama (twice), Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State (twice) and California since the mid 90s. From big wins to great performances to spectacular plays, Louisiana Tech football has always shown the heart of a champion.

THe 2001 WesTeRN aTHLeTiC CONFeReNCe CHaMPiONs after their league-clinching 19-7 win over Tulsa earned them a berth in the Humanitarian Bowl.

DEFENSE Tommy Spangler’s GATA defense has been a thorn in the side of Bulldog opponents over the last three years and with the core of last year’s defense returning, opposing offenses have an even tougher challenge in front of them. The linebackers have four players talented enough to start while the secondary is as talented as it has been in years. The defensive line needs to replace the loss of three starters but all four starters on this year’s depth chart have significant playing experience.

SPECIAL TEAMS Over the last three years, there has been one constant in college football: It’s incredibly tough to stop Phillip Livas when returning kicks as he has a school record six kick/punt returns for touchdowns, only two away from matching the NCAA record. Don’t want to kick it to Livas? Then let us introduce you to Lyle Fitte who was nationally ranked in kickoff returns last year and recorded several 50-plus yard returns last season. The kicking game is just as good for the Bulldogs with Matt Nelson returning for his sophomore season as the team’s kicker.

SONNY

DYKES

HEAD COACH

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. 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 comes 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 the last 11 years. 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. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to name coach Sonny Dykes as the next head football coach at Louisiana Tech University,” said acting athletics director Bruce Van De Velde. “Coach Dykes has demonstrated throughout his coaching career all the leadership qualifications we are looking for in the next leader for our football program. 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 want to start out by letting everyone know how honored I am to be named the head football coach at Louisiana Tech,” said Dykes. “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. I am very fortunate to be here.” Dykes’ Arizona team went 6-3 in the Pac-10 Conference during the 2009 campaign, finishing 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 an outstanding run-pass balance. Dykes orchestrated an Arizona offense that was ranked 10th nationally in passing 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 firstteam all-league status as a junior and senior

(‘08).

Prior to his tenure at Arizona, Dykes was co-offensive coordinator working with then-head 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 codirection, 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 season and career records and earn BlueGray 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 becomes one of the nation’s youngest coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision joining Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley and Temple coach Al Golden as the fourth-youngest coach in FBS. Dykes is married to the former Kate Golding and the two have a daughter, Alta Caroline (Ally), who was born in 2008.

THEY ARE SONN Y WHAT SAYING ABOUT DYKES Mike

Stoops

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.”

Mack

Brown

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.”

Bill

Snyder

Head Coach, Kansas State University “If he is anything like his father, and I truly believe he is, he will endear the entire University and its constituency to him. Sonny is an excellent coach and a loyal and caring person.”

Kevin Curtis joined the LA Tech staff for the 2010 season, coaching the cornerbacks after serving two years at Navarro Junior College where he coached the secondary. “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.” 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.

Long-time college coach Stan Eggen begins his third season as part of the Louisiana Tech staff and his first 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. 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. A large part of the Bulldogs success was due to the performance of a linebacking corps coached by Eggen. In 2008, the unit showed perseverance throughout the season overcoming injuries to starters Quin Harris, Brian White and Nolan Darby. Due to the injuries to the unit, nine different players saw significant time at the position with six different players earning starts, including underclassmen such as Dominique Faust, Adrien Cole, Kiamni Washington and Dusty Rust. 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, including three in a row with the Aggies over the past three seasons. 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, Buffalo Bills’ Aaron Schobel and Baltimore Ravens’ Jarrett Johnson. 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 joined the Louisiana Tech staff as the offensive coordinator in February 2010, bringing an exciting offensive attack back to Joe Aillet Stadium. Franklin joins the LA Tech family after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee. At Middle Tennessee, 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 also recruited 2006 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year Omar Haugabook who swept the top conference honors at season’s end. Haugabook also led the league in passing yards per game, completions, and passing efficiency. In 2007, the Trojans ranked 16th nationally in total offense and 25th in scoring offense. 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. In 2001, Franklin authored a nationally acclaimed book, Fourth Down and Life To Go, which chronicled the good, bad, and ugly experiences of his college football journey. In 2003, Franklin was chosen to lead the expansion franchise Lexington Horsemen football team in their inaugural season in the NIFL. The Horsemen exceeded expectations for an expansion franchise and earned a birth in the playoffs with a 9-5 record, while setting records for attendance and leading the Atlantic Division in scoring at more than 50 points per game. 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 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, 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 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 21 strength records (by position) in the last three 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. Damon In the past two seasons, Louisiana Tech has posted five fourth quarter come-frombehind 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.

After having led Central Connecticut State as offensive coordinator to more wins than any other four year period in school history, Rob Likens joined the Louisiana Tech family for the 2010 season as the Bulldogs wide receivers coach and assistant head coach. Likens has coached the Northeast Conference’s top rushing offense for each of the last four seasons. CCSU’s ground game has 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 Brookhaven, Miss. 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. “I am really excited to be here at Louisiana Tech,” Likens said. “I have known Sonny for over 10 years and we have very similar offensive philosophies. I know he is going to build a program the right way and I know he is going to succeed - I have no doubt in my mind about that. Louisiana Tech has a history of having an offense that is exciting and puts fans on the edge of their seats and I am excited to be involved with this program.” 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. CCSU ranked 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 season.

He also accompanied the NEC Offensive Player of the Year to the Hula Bowl. Hairston, who finished eighth in the Walter Payton Award voting, also appeared in the Texas vs. the Nation game. In all, CCSU’s offense has rewritten eight team records and six individual and game records under Likens. He has coached four first team All-NEC selections, four second team All-NEC selections and five NEC Offensive Player of the Week honorees.

As Pete Perot enters 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. Perot returns an experienced offensive line in 2010, including four starters and allWAC left tackle Rob McGill. 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. After missing almost the entire 2008 season due to health issues, Perot returns in great shape and ready to once again prove he is one of the top offensive line coaches in the game as he enters his 21st year at LA Tech. 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 came to Louisiana Tech in 1986 as a volunteer assistant following an eightyear NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1979-84) and New Orleans Saints (198586) 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 while Josh is employed by Learfield Sports as an account executive for Louisiana Tech Sports Properties.

LA TECH


Tommy Spangler enters his fourth season as the defensive coordinator and safeties coach at Louisiana Tech and his reputation as one of the college football world’s top defensive minds has only grown over the last two years with the Bulldogs. 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’ arrive there was no better defensive coordinator to be found. 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 next-to-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 who has been 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 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 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 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). 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.

When it comes to athletic injuries at Louisiana Tech, the Bulldogs and Lady Techsters look to one of their own as well as one of the best in the United States -- Dr. Billy Bundrick. Dr. Bundrick, who runs the Bone and Joint Clinic in Shreveport, La., has been a familiar face to the Louisiana Tech athletic programs for many years. “I enjoy working with the athletes at Louisiana Tech,” Dr. Bundrick said. “It is a joy to work with athletes because they are people who want to get better and get back on the field.” It was in 1957 that Dr. Bundrick, a young standout football player, decided to transfer to Louisiana Tech from Texas A&M. He earned three letters in football at Tech, including co-captaining the 1959 team to a 9-1 record. He gave up football after that season, graduated from Tech and went to LSU Medical School in New Orleans. Ever since those playing days as a Bulldog, Dr. Bundrick has loved Louisiana Tech University and its athletic programs. In 1969, Dr. Bundrick joined the staff at the Bone and Joint Clinic in Shreveport, and he has remained one of the chief orthopedic doctors in the South ever since. He regained his connection with Louisiana Tech in 1973 when former Bulldog coach Pat Collins saw him at a Captain Shreve High School football game and asked him if he could travel to Ruston to help with the medical treatment of the players during practices. Dr. Bundrick agreed and has been going back and forth from Shreveport to Ruston for the past 30-plus years. Dr. Bundrick’s association with Tech has reached almost four decades and he says he still loves every minute of what he does. Most recently, he was honored by the American Academy of Sports Medicine with the Thomas Brady Award, which recognizes local excellence in sports medicine. Funded by the generous support of Dr. Bundrick, the Tech Sports Medicine Department now has a state-of-the-art training and rehabilitation facilitiy in the William S. Bundrick Sports Medicine Center located in the Charles Wyly Athletic Center. The 3,800 square foot facility contains a Swimex therapeutic pool, cardiovascular equipment, private staff offices and a physician’s examination room. Dr. Bundrick is married to Linda C. Covington.

Joe Aillet Stadium Joe Aillet Stadium has been home to Louisiana Tech football for the past 40 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’ x 45’ 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 now 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.

Since Tech moved up to Division I-A in 1989, the Bulldogs have registered a mark of 65-24 at Joe Aillet Stadium, a winning percentage of about 73.0 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.

Tech defeated Northern Illinois 42-21 in the first home game of the 1989 season to begin the streak with the last of the 18 wins being a 17-16 victory over Northern Illinois in 1993. 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 goalposts 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 game-winner with just under four minutes to play, which was set up by an interception deep in Fresno State territory. The win was sealed when Tramon Williams intercepted Paul Pinegar with less than :30 remaining, starting a wild celebration that saw the goalposts 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.

SPIRIT of ‘88 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

FOOTBALL

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 17th-ranked 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 65 wins and just 24 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.

2009 All-WAC First Team

In its nearly 50 years 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 nine 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. The WAC has sent a total of 31 teams to bowl games since 2001, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five teams. Boise State has won 102 football games since joining the conference, the most in the nation during that time span (2001-09). The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games in three of the last four seasons as Boise State made a repeat appearance with a victory in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl this past year following Hawai‘i’s 2008 Sugar Bowl and Boise State’s unforgettable victory in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 27 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 to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four since 2000. 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. An extension was signed in 2008 that guarantees over 300 regular season WAC contests and 45 championship events will be aired on the ESPN networks through the spring of 2017. 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

Karl BENSON, WAC COMMISSIONER 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 also steered the conference through unsettled times during the late 1990s and again a few years later when the defection of member institutions threatened the WAC. 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 with the additions of Nevada, Boise State and Louisiana Tech earlier this decade and an additional round of expansion with the invitations of New Mexico State, Utah State and Idaho a few years ago. 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 ever 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 and currently, the Humanitarian Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, New Mexico 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 telecast 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 gives the WAC over 300 regular season contests and 45 championship events that will be aired through the 2016-17 season. 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, 18.

Auburn, Ala. - Auburn quarterback Chris Todd connected with Terrell Zachary for a 93-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter to ignite a strong second half by the Tigers who defeated Louisiana Tech 37-13 before over 81,143 fans Saturday night at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The Bulldogs stood toe-to-toe with the Tigers (1-0) in the opening two quarters as only a 49-yard Wes Byrum field goal as time expired in the half separated the two teams as Auburn led 13-10 entering the locker room. However, early in the second half with LA Tech driving, the Tigers defense intercepted Ross Jenkins on their own three-yard line. On a third down and five play following the turnover, Todd hit Zachary on an out-and-up and Zachary raced untouched to the end zone giving Auburn a 20-10 lead. The Bulldogs would get no closer than 10 points the rest of the game as the Tigers outscored them 24-3 over the final two quarters. Auburn racked up over 500 yards of total offense in the game, including more than 200 on both the ground and through the air. After not surrendering a 100-yard rusher in 2008, the LA Tech defense saw both Ben Tate (20-117) and Onterio McCalebb (22-148) eclipse the plateau. McCalebb became the first Auburn freshman to rush for more than 100 yards in their first career game since Bo Jackson accomplished the feat in 1982. The Bulldogs totaled 245 yards of total offense and 19 first downs. Daniel Porter led Tech with 56 yards on 17 carries while Jenkins completed 18-of-33 passes for 149 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Jenkins started the game hitting on his first 10 attempts, a career best, as his first incompletion didn’t occur until less than four minutes remaining in the second quarter. Auburn took an early 3-0 lead as the Tigers marched 69 yards on 13 plays before Wes Byrum connected from 26-yards out. The drive was aided by a roughing the passer call against the Bulldogs around midfield after it appeared Tech had stopped the drive on an incomplete third down pass by UA quarterback Chris Todd. However, the Auburn lead was short-lived as the Bulldogs took their opening possession and drove 72 yards on eight plays as Ross Jenkins hit Dennis Morris on a 19-yard touchdown pass in the back of the endzone, giving LA Tech a 7-3 advantage. Morris leaped high between two Auburn defenders to pull down the scoring toss with 5:00 to play in the opening quarter. The Tech scoring drive was also aided by the yellow flag as Auburn was penalized 45 yards on one pass interference penalty and two face mask penalties. Auburn responded on its next offensive series as Kodi Burns scored from one-yard out with 1:33 to play in the first quarter, making the score 10-7 Auburn. The touchdown run capped a 10-play, 66-yard drive that was highlighted by a 26-yard toss from Todd to Mario Fannin. Following the third score in the first three possessions of the game, the two defenses settled down. Auburn appeared to be driving midway through the second quarter when Bulldog defensive lineman Matt Broha recovered a Tigers fumble on the LA Tech six-yard line with 7:07 to play in the second quarter. Tech’s offense then put its best drive of the night together, converting four third downs on an 18-play, 90-yard march that led to a Matt Nelson 20-yard field goal, tying the game at 10-10 with only 0:23 remaining in the half. Nelson’s field goal, the first of his career, came one play after Adrian Linwood pulled down a Jenkins pass in the corner of the endzone but came down just out of bounds. On the drive Jenkins threw his first incompletion of the night after starting the game with 10 straight completions. The game would not remain tied for long as Auburn started on its own 40-yard line and used three plays to set up a 49-yard Byrum field goal as time expired as the Tigers entered the locker room leading 13-10. After Auburn scored the first 10 points of the second half, Nelson booted a 46-yard field goal attempt to close the margin to 23-13 with 00:52 to play in the third quarter. However, the Tigers scored two touchdowns in the final 15 minutes - a 17-yard pass from Todd to Darvin Adams and a three-yard run by Onterio McCalebb. Adrien Cole led Tech defensively with 10 tackles.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Louisiana Tech built a 14-point lead and then watched it disappear in a 32-14 loss to Navy Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 14-0 advantage less than six minutes into the game compliments of a Daniel Porter three-yard touchdown run and a Phillip Livas 85-yard punt return before Navy scored 32 unanswered points as LA Tech fell to 0-2 on the season. Tech marched 74 yards on 10 plays on its opening possession as Porter gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead on the three-yard run with 11:15 to play in the first quarter. Quarterback Ross Jenkins orchestrated the drive, completing 6-of-7 passes for 74 yards, including a key 27-yard completion to RP Stuart down to the Navy three-yard line on a third-and-16 play. After a three-and-out by the Midshipmen, Livas provided the Bulldog faithful an electrifying 85-yard punt return for a touchdown. Livas fielded the punt on the Bulldogs 15-yard line, burst up the middle and then took it outside racing untouched down the Bulldog sideline for an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead. “Well, he does what he’s been doing for three years now, and it does not surprise us when he takes one to the house,” Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley said. “We just hope he gets a chance and they gave us a chance so we took advantage of it.” The punt return for a score was the third of Livas’ career, tying him with Larry Anderson for the most in Bulldog history. It was also his fifth kick return (punt + kickoff) for a score, also tying Anderson for the most in the record book. It was the fifth longest punt return in Bulldog history and Livas’ career long. It was also the first punt return for a touchdown allowed by Navy since Aug. 30, 2001. However, it would be the final offensive fireworks of the day for Tech which recorded only 167 total yards on the day, only 51 coming in the second half. Navy made the score 14-3 with 4:31 to play in the opening quarter on a 43-yard field goal by Joe Buckley, the first of his college career. The Midshipmen cut the deficit to 14-10 late in the first quarter on a 16-yard scamper down the right side by Cory Finnerty. The score was set up after Navy intercepted a Jenkins pass on a play where freshman Lyle Fitte had the pass bounce off his hands and into the air where Jabaree Tuani picked it off. Navy took its first lead of the game on a three-yard touchdown run by Ricky Dobbs with 11:10 to play in the second quarter. Dobbs run capped a 48-yard scoring drive after Navy took over possession inside the Bulldogs side of the field following a 17-yard punt by LA Tech. Neither team scored the rest of the half although Navy missed on a golden opportunity when wide receiver Doug Furman got behind the Bulldog secondary but dropped a sure touchdown pass from Dobbs around the LA Tech five-yard line. Navy would miss a short field goal attempt right before the half as the Midshipmen led 18-14. After both team’s offenses were unable to score in the third quarter, Navy put the game away in the final 15 minutes as Marcus Curry scored on a three-yard run and Dobbs added a two-yard run to give the Midshipmen the victory. Jenkins finished the game 18-of-29 for 156 yards and one interception while Houston Tuminello (4-29), Porter (4-24), Stuart (3-43) and Dennis Morris (3-26) were the leading receivers for the Bulldogs. For the second consecutive game, Tech struggled on the ground as the Midshipmen - who have led the country in rushing for four straight years - outrushed the Bulldogs 290-11. Porter led Tech with 44 yards on 10 carries. Curry led Navy with 124 yards on 15 attempts while Dobbs was held in check by the Bulldogs with 47 yards on 25 carries. Defensively, Antonio Baker recorded a game-high 12 tackles while Jay Dudley added nine, and Adrien Cole and D’Anthony Smith totaled eight tackles each.

RUSTON, La. - Ross Jenkins passed for a career-high 357 yards and two scores to lead Louisiana Tech to a 48-13 win over Nicholls State before 19,400 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday night. The Bulldogs (1-2) blew open a close game by scoring three touchdowns in the third quarter as Tech improved to 4-0 all-time against the Colonels (1-2). “It was obviously a good win, as they all are,” said Tech head coach Derek Dooley. “I was very proud of how we came out in the second half. I knew it was going to be tough. They’re never easy. I told the team the third quarter was going to define the character of our football team, and the competitive nature of our team.” After struggling offensively in the second half of the first two games of the year, Louisiana Tech erupted by scoring five touchdowns over the final 30 minutes of action. Leading 13-3 at the break, Tech struck quickly in the third quarter as freshman tailback DJ Morrow started the frame with a nine-yard touchdown run that capped a three-play, 60-yard drive coming out of the halftime locker room. The scoring drive was highlighted by a 50-yard connection between Jenkins and Phillip Livas on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter. “The first three minutes of the second half was pretty much the deciding factor,” said Nicholls State head coach Jay Thomas. “Livas hit use with only one big play. It was a good call and we lined up on him wrong, didn’t get the right leverage and had a new guy out there trying to cover him.” Just over one minute later, Tech’s defense struck as Deon Young intercepted Jacob Witt -- his second pass of the night - and returned it 32-yards down the left sideline for a score as the Bulldogs led 27-3. Young had intercepted a Witt pass on the second play of the game which set up a Matt Nelson 24-yard field goal and gave Tech an early 3-0 advantage. The score remained 27-3 until Jenkins found Dennis Morris on a swing pass on a third down play as the tight end raced down the left sideline stiff-arming one Colonel defender for a 37-yard score and a 34-3 LA Tech lead with 4:47 to play in the third quarter. The play capped an impressive 10-play, 97-yard drive that took 4:43 off the game clock. Jenkins opened the fourth quarter with his second scoring toss of the night, a six-yard strike to sophomore Houston Tuminello in the left corner of the endzone and the route was on. It was Tuminello’s first career touchdown reception and the first scoring grab by a Tech wide receiver this season. Jenkins ended the night completing 21-of-30 passes for 357 yards and two scores without throwing an interception. It marked the first 300-plus yard passing game by a Bulldog quarterback since Zac Champion threw for 305 yards in a win over North Texas in 2007. “Ross had a great game, and it’s about as good of a game throwing the football as we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Dooley said. Nicholls State scored their lone touchdown of the night on a 24-yard run by Witt with 10:47 to play in the game as the lead was cut to 41-10. Red-shirt freshman quarterback Colby Cameron then saw his first career action for LA Tech and promptly drove the team 62-yards on seven plays, scoring from one-yard out on a quarterback sneak to cap the Bulldogs scoring on the night. Nicholls State added a 42-yard Ross Schexnayder field goal to end the scoring. After the two teams traded field goals to open the game, Tech took a 10-3 lead on a Daniel Porter two-yard run with 14:55 to play in the second quarter. Nelson added a 44-yard field goal with 1:19 to play in the second quarter to give the Bulldogs a 13-3 halftime lead. Tech’s defense forced four turnovers on the night, including an interception by Antonio Baker in the third quarter. It was Baker’s ninth interception of his career, moving him into a tie for ninth place in the Bulldog record books. Morrow led all Tech running backs with a career-high 89 yards on eight carries and the one score while freshman Tyrone Duplessis added 71 yards on eight carries. Livas and Morris led Tech with 85 yards receiving on four catches each while tight end Dustin Mitchell added four receptions for 53 yards. Tech totaled 558 yards of total offense compared to 271 yards by Nicholls State.

RUSTON, La. - The game was promoted as a Red Out. Most of the experts expected an offensive shoot out. But in the end, Louisiana Tech turned the lights out as it pulled away in the second half for a 27-6 win over Hawaii before 21,260 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Wednesday night. Tech (2-2, 1-0 WAC) used a tenacious defensive effort in the victory as the Bulldogs recorded seven sacks, held the nation’s top rated passing attack to only 308 yards and held Hawaii without a touchdown for the first time in 63 games. “The sacks were just devastating,” said Tech head coach Derek Dooley. “We had seven on the night. Coach (Tommy) Spangler had a great game plan. He was changing coverages and personnel. Everybody played with heart. I saw our entire team enjoy competing.” Bulldog running back Daniel Porter broke out of an early season slump and rushed for 160 yards and two scores as he led a Tech ground game that amassed 352 yards and averaged more than 6.0 yards per carry. Freshman tailback Tyrone Duplessis added a career-high 75 yards in the win. “To be able to rush for 366 yards against anybody is one great feat,” Dooley said. “Porter looked like himself tonight. We’ve got two good freshman runners (in Duplessis and DJ Morrow). You know I like to run the football. We had good command of the game, and I didn’t want to lose that rhythm.” However, the story of the night was the Bulldog defense. Hawaii (2-2, 0-1 WAC) entered the contest averaging 32.0 points and 515.3 yards per game, but the Warriors never got a rhythm offensively thanks to the effort of the Tech defensive unit. Hawaii managed only two Scott Enos first half field goals as the Bulldog defense came up with a couple of big plays inside their own five-yard line. With Tech leading 10-3 late in the second quarter on the strength of a Porter 3-yard touchdown run and a Matt Nelson 28-yard field goal, Hawaii drove down to the field and had a first and goal on the Tech one-yard line. However, Tech stuffed two straight run attempts and Deon Young batted away a third down fade route to the corner of the end zone as the Warriors were forced to kick an 18-yard field goal as the Bulldogs led 10-6 at the half. Tech’s defense struck again early in the third quarter as Kwame Jordan intercepted a batted pass attempt by Hawaii quarterback Greg Alexander on the Warrior 26-yard line. Six plays later, Porter scored on a one-yard burst to give Tech a 17-6 advantage. “It was a great win,” Porter said. “The entire offensive line did a great job. The entire team deserves credit tonight. I got my mojo back tonight. I’m not going to say I was in a slump, but I wasn’t getting my yards. I got it back.” After the Bulldogs forced punts on Hawaii’s next two offensive possessions, Ross Jenkins and the Tech offense drove 56 yards on eight plays and grabbed a 24-6 lead on a six-yard touchdown run by Myke Compton with 2:22 to play in the third quarter. Any chance of a Hawaii comeback was doused with Alexander was injured on a collision with Bulldog linebacker Adrien Cole with less than a minute to play in the third quarter. Alexander, who completed 20 of 34 passes for 199 yards and two interceptions, would not return to the game as backup Bryant Moniz finished the game. With Tech leading 27-6, Moniz drove the Warriors into Tech territory. Moniz found Greg Salas on a 40-yard completion but Salas fumbled on the Tech one-yard line and Chad Boyd recovered for the Bulldogs in the end zone for a touchback. “Give credit to Louisiana Tech,” said Hawaii coach Greg McMackin. “The problem against the run was the worst exhibition of tackling in football. We were diving and not tackling the way we teach. We’re not that kind of football team.” Defensively, Tech was led by Tank Calais (8 tackles), Antonio Baker (7 tackles, 1 FF) and D’Anthony Smith (3 tackles, 2 sacks). The Bulldogs outgained Hawaii 449 to 301 and held Hawaii to negative seven yards rushing.

RENO, Nev. - Colin Kaepernick threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more scores to lead Nevada to a 37-14 win over Louisiana Tech Friday night at Mackay Stadium. For the third time in their three losses this year, the Bulldogs (2-3, 1-1 WAC) scored a touchdown on their opening possession of the game as senior running back Daniel Porter scored on a 15-yard run with 14:16 to play in the first quarter. Porter’s touchdown was set up after Phillip Livas returned the opening kickoff 84 yards to the Nevada 15-yard line. The score was Porter’s 22nd of his career and one of the few bright spots for the Bulldogs. Following an empty offensive possession by each team, Nevada marched 76 yards in 14 plays and tied the game on a three-yard touchdown pass from Kaepernick to Talaiasi Puloka on a third down and goal play with 4:34 to play in the opening quarter. After a second straight three-and-out by the Tech offense, Kaepernick struck again as he scampered around the left end for a five-yard touchdown run giving Nevada a 14-7 lead with 0:29 to play in the first quarter. The run capped a 6-play, 79-yard drive by the Wolf Pack that was highlighted by Chris Wellington’s 47-yard run on a reverse, setting up the score. Nevada upped the advantage to 17-7 on a 40-yard field goal by Ricky Drake at the 10:22 mark of the second stanza, the first of his career. The score came after an eight-play, 35-yard drive that was set up by a fourth down stop by the Nevada defense on its own 43-yard field goal. The Wolf Pack opened the second half with a methodical drive capped by Kaepernick’s 24-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Wimberly. The score came on a nine-play, 80-yard drive that chewed up 4:45 off the game clock and it gave Nevada a 23-7 advantage. Porter struck again for the Bulldogs on the next possession as he took a handoff from Jenkins, broke two tackles and outraced a third Nevada defender 64 yards for his second rushing score of the game. The extra point by Matt Nelson made the score 23-14 Wolf Pack with 9:56 to play in the third quarter. On the run, Porter moved into seventh place in the Tech record books in rushing yards, passing Garlon Powell. However, it would also prove to be the final carry of the night for Porter, who ended the game with 99 yards and two scores on 11 carries. Trailing 23-14, Tech’s defense had an opportunity to close the gap as sophomore cornerback Terry Carter stepped in front of a Kaepernick pass on Nevada’s next possession. However, Carter couldn’t hold onto the pass as it fell innocently to the turf. The Bulldogs defense did hold as Nevada was forced to punt. However, Jenkins forced a throw downfield on the first play from scrimmage that was intercepted by the Wolf Pack. After each team traded punts, Kaepernick scored his second rushing touchdown of the game, this time racing 67 yards down the left sideline with 1:57 to play in the third quarter, upping the Nevada advantage to 30-14. After another three-and-out for the Bulldogs offense, the Wolf Pack special teams unit struck as Nevada blocked a Cade Glasgow punt, taking over possession on the Tech three-yard line. Kaepernick tossed his third touchdown of the game, this one covering three yards to tight end Virgil Green with 14:49 to play in the game as the Wolf Pack lead increased to 37-14. The win marked the fifth straight victory by Nevada over Louisiana Tech as the Wolf Pack increased their series lead to 6-4. It was also the 200th career win for Wolf Pack Hall of Fame coach Chris Ault. Nevada racked up 511 yards of offense, including 345 yards on the ground led by Vai Taua’s 107 yards, Kaepernick’s 89 yards and Luke Lippincott’s 57 yards. Kaepernick also completed 15-of-21 passes for 166 yards and three scores. LA Tech managed 256 yards of total offense. In addition to Porter’s night, Myke Compton rushed for 48 yards on 11 carries. Jenkins struggled, completing only 8-of-17 passes for 129 yards and one interception. Freshman punter Cade Glasgow averaged 45.4 yards per punt, including a career-long 67 yard punt late in the second quarter - the fifth longest punt in Bulldog history. True freshman Chad Boyd and sophomore Adrien Cole led the Tech defense with 10 tackles each while Cole also recorded his first career sack.

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech quarterback Ross Jenkins tossed three touchdowns and Daniel Porter recorded a 100-yard rushing day as the Bulldogs defeated New Mexico State 45-7 before a homecoming crowd of 20,773 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday afternoon. While the LA Tech offense was clicking on all cylinders, the Bulldogs defense was stifling holding New Mexico State (3-4, 1-2 WAC) to 142 total yards of offense and zero offensive touchdowns - the Aggies lone score came on a 38-yard fumble return late in the game. One week after struggling in a lopsided loss at Nevada, head coach Derek Dooley’s team got off to a fast start and never looked back in winning for the third time in three tries at home this season. “It was obviously a dominant performance by the team,” said Dooley. “I’m proud of how well we hit the field, especially in the third quarter. We played hard for four quarters. The only disappointment was giving up the touchdown at the end.” Jenkins, who was under heavy criticism during the week for the Bulldogs offensive struggles in the loss to Nevada, completed 11-of-19 passes for 204 yards and three scores before departing the game with just over three minutes to play in the third quarter. “He played a good game,” Dooley said. “Ross is good when we play good around Ross. When we can manage our offense and run the ball, we can put 45 points. I don’t know how much better you can get.” His main target throughout the contest was senior tight end Dennis Morris, who finished with career-highs in receptions (6), yards (126) and touchdowns (2). After jumping out to a 3-0 lead on a Matt Nelson 26-yard field goal on its opening possession of the game, the Bulldogs marched 62-yards on four plays to grab a 10-0 lead on a Myke Compton 10-yard run with 4:07 to play in the first stanza. The big play of the drive was a 38-yard run by Porter, moving the Bulldogs inside the red zone. Jenkins then gave Tech a 17-0 lead with 9:00 to play in the second quarter on a one-yard run, the second rushing touchdown of his career. The play capped an eight-play, 64-yard drive that took 2:41 off the clock. With the first half winding down, Jenkins put another nail in the coffin as he found Morris over the middle for a 29-yard touchdown pass on a fourth-down-and-three play with only 57 seconds to play in the half, giving the Bulldogs a commanding 24-0 halftime advantage. The Bulldog defense continued its dominance in the second half as it held NMSU to nine possessions of three plays or less with the longest drive by the Aggies totaling five plays for 46 yards - a drive that ended with an Olajawon Paige interception on the Tech goal line. While the Tech defense was hounding the Aggies, the Bulldog offensive continue to shine as Jenkins found Adrian Linwood for a 32-yard touchdown pass and Morris with a 16-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. It was Linwood’s first career score and the first by a Bulldog wide receiver this season. Freshman Lyle Fitte capped the Bulldogs scoring with an impressive 26-yard run with 9:15 to play in the fourth quarter, upping the advantage to 45-0. Fitte ended the game with 51-yards rushing on only three carries. The lone score of the night for New Mexico State came with only 4:56 to play as Davon House scooped up a fumble by DJ Morrow and scampered 38-yards for a touchdown. For the day, Tech totaled 540 yards of total offense - 315 yards on the ground and 225 through the air - and 30 first downs while holding the Aggies to only 142 yards and six first downs. “From start to finish, it was just one of those days,” said NMSU head coach DeWayne Walker. “I’ve been in games like this and it just wasn’t our day. We have got to go back, evaluate the tape, get back to the drawing board and try to get our act together for next week.” Dominique Faust led Tech with six tackles, including a career-high 1.5 sacks, while Adrien Cole, Antonio Baker, Kwame Jordan and Tank Calais each added five tackles. Calais and Paige added interceptions while Deon Young recorded his first career fumble recovery.

LOGAN, Utah - Louisiana Tech’s road struggles continued Saturday afternoon as Utah State downed the Bulldogs 23-21 at Romney Stadium. Tech (3-4, 2-2 WAC) fell for the fourth time in four road games this season although unlike the first three road losses, this game came down to the final possession. Trailing 23-7 after three quarter, the Bulldogs scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to make it a one possession game. Trailing 23-21 with 4:01 to play, the Bulldogs took over possession on its own 16-yard line following a Utah State punt. After two first downs moved the football to the Tech 45-yard line, Tech found itself looking at a third down and nine when Jenkins hit a wide open Dustin Mitchell on an out route. However, after making the catch, Mitchell tripped and fell to the turf at midfield, setting up a fourth down and five play. Jenkins dropped back and under the Aggies all out blitz, fired a pass downfield that was off the fingertips of intended receiver Adrian Linwood as Utah State took over and ran out the clock. After a scoreless first quarter, Utah State struck first with 13:31 to play in the second quarter when Diondre Borel found a wide open Stanley Morrison for a 41-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline, giving the Aggies a 7-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, freshman Lyle Fitte fumbled and Utah State recovered on the Bulldog 30-yard line. Seven plays later, Chris Ulinski nailed a 28-yard field goal to up the Utah State advantage to 10-0 with 11:00 to play in the quarter. However, on the next kickoff, Phillip Livas fielded the ball five yards deep in the endzone, headed straight up field, broke the initial line of Utah State defenders cut back towards the middle of the field and outraced four Aggie defenders for a 100-yard touchdown return. Matt Nelson’s extra point made the score 10-7 Utah State. The 100-yard return tied the school record with five other Bulldog players, the last being Patrick Jackson against Fresno State in 2006. It was also Livas’ sixth return (3 kickoffs, 3 punts) for a touchdown in his career, breaking the old record of five set by Larry Anderson in the 1970s. It didn’t take Utah State long to answer as the Aggies drove 80 yards on six plays and scored on a 44-yard run by Dervin Speight with 8:16 to play in the second quarter, giving the Aggies a 17-7 lead. Utah State dominance in the opening 30 minutes was evidenced on the stat sheet as the Aggies totaled 10 first downs to Tech’s 2 and outgained the Bulldogs 245-66. After a third field goal by Ulinski - the lone scoring by either team in the third quarter - the Bulldogs offense finally found the end zone on some trickery as Jenkins hit RP Stuart on a 26-yard scoring toss off a flea-flicker with 10:39 to play in the final quarter. The touchdown capped an eight-play, 66-yard drive that took 3:37 off the clock. It was Stuart’s first touchdown reception on the season. The Bulldog defense stiffened forcing a three and out on the next Utah State possession as Tech’s offense took over on its own 30-yard line. After an 11-yard run by Porter, Jenkins hit Roosevelt Falls on a swing pass in the flat and Falls rumbled 29-yards thanks to a mammoth block by Dennis Morris as Tech had first and 10 on the Aggies 30-yard line. After two more first downs, Tech had a first and goal on the USU nine-yard line. On first down Jenkins was sacked and after an incomplete pass on second down, the Bulldogs faced a third and goal from the Aggies 20-yard line. Jenkins then hit a wide open Dennis Morris down the right hash mark for the score, closing the gap to 23-21 with 6:15 to play. On the tying two-point conversion attempt, Jenkins overthrew Stuart in the back of the endzone as the Aggies held onto a two-point lead, setting up the final few minutes of the game. Jenkins ended the game completing 17-of-26 passes for 155 yards with two scores and one interception, although 121 of the yards came in the final quarter when the Bulldogs scored two touchdowns to make a game of it. After being outgained 329 to 108 through the first three quarters, Tech outgained Utah State 164-16 in the fourth and final quarter. Stuart (3-45-1 TD) and Cruz Williams (3-31) led all Tech receivers while Daniel Porter led the Bulldog rushing attack with 68 yards on 18 carries. Jay Dudley posted a career day for Tech, recording 15 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and one sack while Adrien Cole added 12 tackles and one TFL.

GAME 8

MOSCOW, Idaho - Louisiana Tech true freshman Matt Nelson’s 56-yard field goal attempt on the last play of the game was wide right as Idaho defeated the Bulldogs 35-34 Saturday afternoon in Western Athletic Conference action at the Kibbie Dome. After Idaho took the one-point lead on a two-yard run by Vandal running back De’Maundray Woolridge with 52 seconds to play, redshirt freshman quarterback Colby Cameron led the Bulldogs 36-yards to set up the game-winning attempt. Tech (3-5, 2-3 WAC) lost for the fifth time in five road games while Idaho (7-2, 4-1) kept its impressive season intact. The Vandals led for only 2 minutes and 51 seconds of the 60-minute game but ended the game with the one-point victory. The Bulldogs almost came away with the victory despite the fact that at least eight players listed on the two-deep either missed the entire game or a large portion of it due to injury. After Idaho opened the game with a 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the Bulldogs answered the Idaho touchdown as freshman Lyle Fitte took the ensuing kickoff and returned it 53 yards to the Vandals 47-yard line. Five plays later, Ross Jenkins hit Cruz Williams for a 17-yard touchdown with 13:01 to play as Williams leaped high over the Idaho defender to pull down the catch in the left corner of the end zone. It was Williams’ first career touchdown reception. Jenkins set up the score with a 36-yard completion to Williams down the left sideline, giving the Bulldogs first and goal on the Idaho nine-yard line. Following a five yard penalty and a three-yard loss on a rushing attempt, Jenkins hit Williams for the score. After a three-and-out by Idaho, Tech marched 80 yards on eight plays and took a 14-7 lead on a Daniel Porter three-yard touchdown run with 9:27 to play in the opening quarter. The touchdown was the 24th of Porter’s career, moving him into seventh place all-time in the Bulldog record books. The Bulldogs added a third touchdown in the opening quarter as Jenkins found Morris on a 10-yard touchdown pass with 2:48 to play, capping an impressive 90-yard drive covering 11 plays. Idaho took advantage of a questionable defensive pass interference penalty on a third down play on their next possession as the flag kept the drive alive. Vandals quarterback Nathan Enderle then found Max Komar on a 36-yard scoring toss with 14:49 to play in the second quarter, making the score 21-14 Tech. After an empty possession by both teams, the Bulldogs took over at the midfield stripe and promptly drove 50 yards on 10 plays and scored on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Jenkins to Williams, their second of the day. It was the third scoring pass by Jenkins on the day with all three of them coming on third down and long plays. The Bulldogs racked up 360 yards of total offense and 18 first downs heading into the halftime locker room leading 28-14. On Tech’s first possession of the second half, the Bulldogs lost another key player as Porter was injured on a six-yard run on the opening play of the half and lost for the remainder of the game. After the Bulldogs were unable to record a first down, Tech punted as Idaho took over on its own 30-yard line. The Vandals then struck first as Enderle hit Komar on a 32-yard touchdown pass with 10:38 to play, capping a 70-yard drive in eight plays and making the score 28-21. Red-shirt freshman quarterback Colby Cameron took over for Jenkins and promptly drove the Bulldogs 84 yards on 15 plays for a score as Myke Compton took it the final yard for his third touchdown of the season with 14:57 to play. Matt Nelson’s extra point was wide right as Tech led 34-21. On the drive, Cameron completed 3 of 4 passes for 39 yards while also rushing twice for 16 yards. After a three-and-out by Tech, Idaho took over at midfield with just over 10 minutes to play. On the first play from scrimmage, Enderle threw his second interception of the game as Antonio Baker played centerfield on a long pass play, picking off the pass on the Tech three-yard line. It was Baker’s 10th career interception, moving him into a tie for eighth place in the Bulldog record books and 11th on the NCAA active leader list. Midway through the final stanza, Enderle drove Idaho for a score as De’Maundray Woolridge scored on a one-yard dive with 5:51 to play making the score 34-28. Three plays before the touchdown, Tech defensive back Terry Carter stepped in front of an out route and appeared to have an interception and a touchdown but dropped the pass - giving Idaho new life and setting up the eventual game-winning drive with less than a minute to play. Jenkins ended the game completing 17-of-30 passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns while Cameron was 10-for-16 for 110 yards and no scores. Tech outgained Idaho 547 to 462 in total offense, including 329 yards through the air and 218 yards on the ground. Livas led Tech on the ground with 69 yards while Porter added 52, and DJ Morrow 49. Williams led all Tech receivers with four receptions for 82 yards and two scores. RP Stuart added a career-high six receptions for 73 yards.

RUSTON, La. - Kellen Moore passed for 354 yards and three touchdowns to give fifthranked Boise State a 45-35 win over Louisiana Tech before 23,240 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Friday night. Moore’s 12-yard touchdown to Austin Pettis with 7:41 to play in the game gave the TENNIS PREVIEW Broncos some breathing room as LA Tech had cut a 20-point halftime deficit down to 30-28 PAGE - 6 after a pair of third quarter scores and a five-yard touchdown from Ross Jenkins to Dennis Morris with 14:07 to play in the game. Boise State (9-0, 4-0 WAC) sealed the win on a Jeremy Avery 44-yard touchdown run MEN’S BASKETBALL that gave the Broncos a 45-28 lead with 4:52 to play after LA Tech failed to convert a fourth PREVIEW and six play with just over five minutes to play in the game. PAGE - 35 The first half was anything but a fight as Boise State held the Bulldogs to a mere 64 yards of total offense, with 68 of that coming on a seven-play scoring drive on the second WOMEN’S BASKETBALL possession of the game. Daniel Porter capped the drive with a one-yard run at the 8:14 mark, PREVIEW giving LA Tech an early 7-3 lead. PAGE - 60 However, the Bulldogs managed zero first downs and had seven three-and-outs on their other first half possessions while Boise State racked up 27 points and 219 yards. The Broncos recorded touchdowns on a two-yard pass to Richie Brockel, a 2-yard run by Doug Martin and a 40-yard pass to Titus Young as well as a 34-yard Kyle Brotzman field goal - his second of the opening half as Boise State led 27-7 at intermission. s! Boise State appeared ready to put the game away on their opening drive of the third co n ro quarter when Moore made an ill-advised pass under heavy pressure from D’Anthony Smith eB th that was plucked out of the air by Tech cornerback Josh Victorian and returned 75-yards down the Bulldog sideline for a score, cutting the deficit to 27-14. “Throwing that interception gave them quick points,” Moore said. “That certainly kept them in the game. That was just my fault. I was trying to get the ball out of bounds. Obviously, I didn’t get it there and their guy made the play. “It was a stupid thing that shouldn’t have happened. I was trying to throw it away off my back foot and nothing good ever happens from that for a quarterback.” After a third Brotzman field goal upped the Broncos lead to 30-14, Tech drove 73-yards on 11 plays and scored on a nine-yard Jenkins run with 1:30 to play in the third quarter. Matt Nelson’s extra point made the score 30-21 Boise State. Dooley and Co. then pulled out some trickery as Nelson successfully converted an on-side kick that he recovered on the Tech 41-yard line. Seven plays later, Jenkins found Dennis Morris for a five-yard score on an acrobatic catch of the Boise State defender as the lead was cut to two with 14:07 to play in the game. “You aren’t judged by how you play the first 30 minutes,” Jenkins said. “We knew we played as bad as we could have in the first half. As players we were upset with how we were playing. We knew we had to take a deep breath, relax and play like we know how. That’s what we did.” After a Brotzman missed 31-yard field goal on the Broncos next possession, Tech took over with an opportunity to take the lead but the Broncos defense stood tall, forcing a fourth down and one from the Bulldog 29 with just over 10 minutes to play. The Bulldogs punted the ball back over to Boise State and the Broncos drove 56-yards on five plays as Moore hit Pettis high over the middle from 12-yards out on a third down and seven play. “It was a two-point game, and we still had (10) minutes left,” Dooley said. “I just felt if we went for it and didn’t’ get it, they were in scoring position. I didn’t think it was the smart thing to do at the time.” After an empty Tech possession, Avery put the game away with the 44-yard scamper. Avery finished the night with 146 yards rushing on 25 carries. For Tech, Jenkins completed 10-of-19 passes for 114 yards, one score and one interception while rushing for 19 yards and one score. Porter led Tech on the ground with 92 yards on 24 carries while Morris led the Bulldog receivers with 78 yards and one score on five carries. Defensively, freshman CJ Broades recorded a career-high 10 tackles while Victorian added nine and Deon Young and Tank Calais each tallied eight. The Bulldogs played the majority of the game without senior safety Antonio Baker, who suffered an injury on the first possession of the game. PAGE - 4

GAME 10

BATON ROUGE, La. - An injury-riddled Louisiana Tech team silenced the more than 90,000 fans at Tiger Stadium for the majority of the game, but in the end the 9th ranked LSU Tigers simply had a little more in the tank as they defeated the Bulldogs 24-16 Saturday night. LA Tech (3-7, 2-4 WAC), which entered the game with 18 freshmen and sophomores on their two-deep due to a plague of injuries to key starters, played toe-to-toe with LSU until a Keiland Williams nine-yard touchdown run with 7:01 to play gave the Tigers some breathing room. However, it wasn’t easy for Les Miles and Co. against a Tech team which entered the game having lost three straight games by a total of 13 points, including a 10-point loss to 5th ranked Boise State last week. In fact, the Bulldogs used some last second heroics in the opening half to send LSU into the halftime locker room trailing 13-10 under a chorus of boos from the homecoming faithful. After driving more than 80 yards in over four minutes, Tech found itself faced with a fourth down and goal from the LSU one-yard line with only :02 to play in the second quarter. However, Dooley opted to roll the dice sending his offensive unit back onto the field. With a three tight end set, quarterback Ross Jenkins started walking down the offensive line appearing to change the play. However, center Lon Roberts snapped the ball directly to running back Daniel Porter who ran up the middle before pulling up at the two-yard line and completing a Tim Tebow-esque jump pass over the mass of humanity at the goal line to tight end Dennis Morris who pulled down his eighth touchdown of the year. The play capped a 13-play, 83-yard drive and gave Tech a 13-10 lead, the first lead by a Bulldog team over LSU since 1904. Offensively, Tech dominated the opening 30 minutes racking up 14 first downs to LSU’s six and outgaining the Tigers 229 yards to 138. The Bulldogs also ran 45 offensive plays to LSU’s 20 while holding onto the football for almost 21 minutes. However, the Tigers defense stiffened in the second half, holding Tech without any points until a Matt Nelson 36-yard field goal with :25 to play in the game cut the LSU lead to 24-16. The ensuing onside kick was unsuccessful as LSU escaped with the win. LSU jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on a 35-yard field goal by Josh Jasper with 9:08 to play in the opening quarter, capping a nine play, 47-yard drive that was aided by a defensive pass interference penalty called on Josh Victorian on a third down and 20-play. The Bulldogs wasted little time in responding as Tech kept to the ground, grinding out a 10-play, 45-yard drive that resulted in a 30-yard field goal by Nelson. LSU answered, driving 79 yards on six plays and taking a 10-3 lead on a 38-yard pass play from Jarrett Lee to Brandon LeFell with 1:55 to play in the opening quarter. LeFell caught a short slant and raced untouched to the endzone. LA Tech marched 43-yards on 10 plays as Nelson added a 33-yard field goal with 5:39 to play in the second quarter, cutting the Tiger lead to 10-6. After another three and out by the Bulldog defense, Porter and Co. took over on their own 17-yard line and promptly drove down to the LSU one-yard line with :02 to play in the half. Instead of kicking a chip-shot field goal to cut the lead to one at the half, Dooley dug deep into the playbook and put his offense back out on the field as Porter tossed his first career touchdown pass. After neither team was able to move the ball on their first possession of the second half, LSU drove 59 yards on nine plays and took a 17-13 lead on a three-yard run by Keiland Williams with6:59 to play in the third quarter. LSU took its biggest lead of the game with 7:01 to play as Williams recorded his second touchdown of the game, this one coming from nine yards out and giving the Tigers a 24-13 lead. The run capped an eight-play, 56-yard drive that was once again aided by a defensive pass interference penalty on the Bulldogs on a third down and long play. “This was best in state team we’ve played,” said LSU head coach Les Miles. “In fact LA Tech may be better than a year ago (when they won a bowl); they just don’t have record to prove it. If they showed up in a bowl game, they would win it. It doesn’t matter if you tell the guys that, they don’t listen until you get into the game. We looked more like ourselves in the second half. Tyrone Duplessis led Tech with 65 yards on 17 carries while Porter added 64 yards on 13 carries. Jenkins completed 16-of-31 passes for 143 yards and no interceptions while Myke Compton recorded five catches for 38 yards and Dustin Mitchell added five grabs for 37 yards. Tech outgained LSU 322 to 246 while recording 23 first downs to the Tigers 15. However, 10 penalties for 100 yards were too much for the Bulldogs to overcome. The 16 points scored by the Bulldogs were the most ever in the 19-game history of the series. It was also the most points LSU has given up at home this year, including games against top-ranked Florida and Auburn.

FRESNO, Calif. - Kevin Goessling’s 35-yard field goal on the final play of the game lifted Fresno State to a 30-28 win over Louisiana Tech Saturday evening at Bulldog Stadium. LA Tech dropped its fifth game in a row, with all five losses coming by a total combined total of 23 points. Four of the five losses were by one possession and three of them were by two points or less. Goessling’s third field goal of the game capped a game-winning drive that saw Fresno State dodge a couple of bullets while driving 68 yards on 16 plays over the final 2:21 of the contest. After LA Tech punter Cade Glasgow pinned Fresno State on its 14-yard line with 2:21 to play, Colburn and Co. began the drive. Following a Colburn two-yard run that gave the Bulldogs a first down on their own 25-yard line, the signal caller made a poor decision and threw into coverage where Tech cornerback Terry Carter stepped in front of the pass. However, Carter was unable to pull down the interception, keeping Fresno State’s drive and hopes alive. The Bulldogs eventually moved the ball to the Tech 46-yard line where three straight Colburn incompletions set up a fourth-down and 10 play with less than a minute to play in the game. Tech brought a blitz but under pressure Colburn found an open Chastin West for 19-yards and a Fresno State first down. West had beaten Tech defensive back Olajawon Paige, giving Fresno State the ball on the LA Tech 27 yard line. A two-yard Robbie Rouse run and a nine-yard completion to Jamel Hamler set up the 35-yard Goessling game-winner. The loss overshadowed an impressive offensive day by a trio of Bulldogs as quarterback Ross Jenkins passed for 206 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, including a trio of scoring strikes to tight end Dennis Morris who finished the day with a career-high seven catches for a career-high 131 yards and the three scores. The Jenkins to Morris combination struck early as they teamed up for a 50-yard touchdown pass on just the second play of the game as Morris ran wide open down the middle of the field for the score. After Fresno State took a 14-7 lead, Jenkins found Morris again for a 12-yard score to tie the game at 14-14 late in the first quarter. The duo hooked up for the third and final time with 10:44 to play in the second quarter as Jenkins found Morris running wide open down the middle of the field for a 39-yard score and a 21-21 tie. Senior running back Daniel Porter also made his mark during the game, rushing 22 times for 137 yards to come the second leading rusher in Tech history moving past former Bulldog Ryan Moats. He needs 190 yards in the season finale against San Jose State to pass Jason Cooper for first place in the record books. After Tech took a 7-0 lead on Morris’ first touchdown grab, Fresno State came back and tied the game on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Colburn to Seyi Ajirotutu with 7:04 to play in the first quarter. Less than 20 seconds later, Fresno State capitalized on the first of three LA Tech turnovers as Ben Jacobs picked up a Porter fumble and raced 21-yards untouched to the endzone as the California-based Bulldogs led 14-7. Tech responded on its next possession, driving 72 yards on seven plays and tying the game at 14-14 on the 12-yard toss from Jenkins to Morris with 3:07 to play in the opening quarter. A Lonyae Miller five-yard touchdown run gave Fresno State a 21-14 lead early in the second quarter before Morris struck again with a 39-yard reception with 10:44 to play as the two teams were tied at 21-21. Tech appeared ready to possibly position itself for a field goal before the half but Jenkins fumbled the ball away on the Fresno State 45-yard line with 17 seconds to play as the two teams entered the halftime locker room tied. Goessling gave Fresno State a 24-21 lead early in the third quarter on a 24-yard field goal before LA Tech struck back, driving 72 yards on nine plays and taking a 28-24 advantage on a 36-yard pass play from Jenkins to freshman Cruz Williams with 4:44 to play in the third stanza. For the game Jenkins completed 14-of-22 passes for 206 yards and four scores with no interceptions. Goessling added a 23-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to cut the LA Tech advantage to 28-27. Tech’s offense had three possessions to extend the advantage out but two punts and the third lost fumble of the game prevented the Bulldogs from pulling away, setting up the late Fresno State heroics.

COACHES

RUSTON, La. - Daniel Porter ran for 199 yards and set the school’s career rushing record as Louisiana Tech ran over San Jose State en route to a 55-20 victory in front of 15,324 at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday afternoon. Louisiana Tech (4-8, 3-5 WAC) snapped a five-game losing streak to end the season and won its third consecutive game over San Jose State as the Spartans (2-10, 1-7 WAC) struggled to stop a powerful Tech ground game. Porter, who entered the game needing 190 yards to set the record, also ran for three touchdowns in the dominating win for Louisiana Tech. Porter was one of 12 seniors that were honored during the pregame ceremonies on “Senior Day.” Jay Dudley led the Tech defense with 10 tackles while Tank Calais’ school-record 96-yard interception return for a touchdown almost prevented Porter for reaching the record. Porter was eight yards shy of setting a new school record for most of the fourth quarter and almost lost his chance when Calais ran the ball back for the touchdown. But a successful challenge by Tech verified Josh Victorian’s interception with 3:38 remaining in the game gave Porter one final chance to set the record. Porter ran past the record mark on a 16-yard run with under two minutes left in the game and was greeted by cheers from teammates and coaches on the sideline. Tech was able to put Porter in position to set the record as the Bulldogs got out to an early lead after scoring touchdowns on five consecutive possessions in the first half. After the Spartans opened with a touchdown on a 16-yard reception by Marquis Avery, Tech quickly drove down the field and Porter ran the ball into the end zone from eight yards out on a sixplay, 66-yard drive that lasted only 2:26. San Jose State took their final lead of the game on the ensuing possession as Jala Beauchman caught a two-yard pass from Kyle Reed. Tech responded by driving 81 yards on four plays in less than a minute and a half as Porter scored again, this time from 39 yards out. “They were one of the best football teams we have seen all year, despite of their record,” said San Jose State head coach Dick Tomey. “They’ve just lost a lot of close games and that just illustrates how tough it is to win in college football because they have a really good team. I think Derek (Dooley) and Louisiana Tech are on the right track.” Tech would force a turnover on downs and pulled a rabbit out of a hat for its third score and first lead of the game. Early in the second quarter, the offense went into motion giving D.J. Morrow the ball on a direct snap. Morrow then threw the ball to a wide open Dennis Morris 19 yards for a touchdown, the second touchdown reception Morris has caught from a tailback this year. Two plays later, Deon Young ran back an interception 55 yards for a touchdown to give the Bulldogs the 28-14 lead. That marked Young’s 10th career interception, ranking him eighth in school history for INTs. After a stingy Bulldog defense forced the Spartans to go three-and-out, the quick strike Bulldogs struck again as Lyle Fitte caught a 38-yard touchdown reception from Ross Jenkins to cap a three-play, 49-yard drive that lasted just over a minute. Porter would reach the end zone one more time on a three-yard run and Matt Nelson would kick a 39-yard field goal as time was expiring as Tech entered halftime with a 45-14 lead and the most points a Tech team has scored in one half since at least 2000 when LA Tech scored 42 in the first half of a 63-10 win over Mississippi Valley State. The second half would not be as offensively dominated with the Spartans striking first to cut the Tech lead to 45-20 on an Avery 80-yard reception from Jorda La Secla. That would mark San Jose State’s final score of the game. With 2:40 remaining in the third quarter, D’Anthony Smith recovered a fumble on the San Jose State 11-yard line that eventually set up a 32-yard field goal as a five-yard penalty and two incomplete passes forced Tech to kick the field goal for the 48-20 lead. Two possessions later for San Jose State, the Spartans’ 12-play, 69-yard drive ended quickly when Calais returned the interception for a touchdown.

JOE

One of the main building blocks of success for a football program is stability in the coaching staff, and for 40 years, Louisiana Tech had not only stability but incredible talent. Joe Aillet remains the winningest football coach in Louisiana Tech history and was one of the most respected in the country during his 26-year coaching career with the Bulldogs. Aillet produced a record of 152-86-8 and won or shared 12 conference championships between 1940 and 1966. He served as Tech’s athletic director for an additional four years. A member of several national coaching halls of fame, Aillet was instrumental in forming the Louisiana High School Coaches Association in the 1930s and the Gulf States Conference in 1948. Maxie Lambright replaced Aillet in 1967 and remained at Tech through 1978, producing a “Golden Era” of Bulldog football which included seven conference titles, three national championship seasons and two Division I bowl games. He produced 11 All-Americans and sent a dozen Bulldogs into the pros. He also built the nation’s longest college football winning streak at 23 games during 1973 and 1974.

MAXIE

Another building block at Louisiana Tech was Maxie Lambright. Lambright coached the 1972 Bulldogs to a 12-0 record as Louisiana Tech won the National Football Foundation national title with a 35-0 win over Tennessee Tech in the Grantland Rice Bowl. The following season, Lambright’s Bulldogs claimed the Division II national title defeating Western Kentucky 34-0 in the championship game. During his 12 years on the Tech sideline, Lambright amassed a mark of 95-36-2 while winning seven conference titles.

BULLDOG HISTORY

1910-1919

The names ring like a Who’s Who in the National Football League: Terry Bradshaw, Pat Tilley, Roger Carr, Mike Barber, Fred Dean, Matt Stover, Willie Roaf, Doug Evans, Tim Rattay and Troy Edwards. They are just a few of the many great players who have donned a Louisiana Tech Bulldog uniform over the past century, and their accomplishments at Tech are even more impressive. Starting with its very first game in 1901, Louisiana Tech has become a household name in collegiate football circles. And over the years Louisiana Tech has produced numerous conference titles, numerous all-American honors, numerous professional players and two national championship titles. This year’s players and coaches should only add to an already impressive resume. Although so much emphasis is placed on the present, with 107 seasons of Tech football in the record books, it’s important to remember so many great moments, so many great players and so many great coaches that have already made Tech’s history on the gridiron successful. From the very first team to last season’s squad, Tech football can be described with three words: TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE.

Record: 24-22-5 (.471) Coaches: Percy Prince (1910-1915); A. Flack (1916); V.S. Pugh (1917); Percy Prince (1918-1919) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: N/A 1910: First perfect season (7-0) During this decade of Bulldog football, Prince coached Tech for seven seasons, including the school’s first perfect year in 1910 with a record of 7-0. Prince was the first coach at Tech to coach for multiple seasons, finishing his career with a record of 24-16-5. His 1911 and 1915 teams also posted winning records, recording marks of 4-2-1 and 3-1-2, respectively. 1916: First Recorded Game at Independence Stadium In 1916, Coach A. Flack took over for Prince, but the Bulldogs struggled, going 2-4 with wins over Ouachita and Northwestern State. V.S. Pugh took over the coaching duties in 1917 and led Tech to a 2-3 season. However, Prince came back and coached Tech for one last season in 1919 as Tech lost to Henderson State and Northwestern State in the only two recorded games.

1901-1909 Record: 20-13-4 (.541) Coaches: Edwin Barber (1901); Frank Singleton (1902); Unknown (1903); E.G. Pierce (1904); J.Y. Bragg (1905); Z.T. Young (1906); George Watkins (1907); A.L. Cornell (1908); Percy Prince (1909) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: N/A 1901: First Recorded Intercollegiate Football Game Louisiana Tech intercollegiate football history began with that 1901 season, as Edwin Barber — the first athletic coach employed by the young university — led the Bulldogs on the playing field. And although records of some of the first years in Tech history are incomplete, Barber’s team lost the only two games for which results do exist, falling to Louisiana State 57-0 and Arkansas 16-0. However, the Tech tradition had begun. The November 1902 Industrialist, the first student publication at Tech, reported that Coach Frank Singleton led the second team to “a fairly successful season,” although the record of that Bulldog squad is not known. 1904: First Recorded Intercollegiate Football Win Coach E.G. Pierce led the 1904 Bulldogs to the first recorded win in school history with a 6-0 victory against Louisiana State during a 1-3 season. The game not only marked the inaugural win in Tech history, but also the first shutout. Tech’s first winning season was posted in 1906 as Z.T. Young led the Bulldogs to a 2-1-3 record with wins over Ouachita Baptist and the Ruston Athletic Club. The following season, Coach George Watkins and the Bulldogs registered a 9-1 mark, which is still the most wins by a first-year head coach in Tech history. During that season, Tech outscored its opponents 248-37, with the lone setback coming against Louisiana State. It is not known where those first Bulldogs played their games, but beginning with the 1904 season, all Tech athletic events were held in an athletic park, with a grandstand, located next to Harper Hall and present-day Howard Auditorium.

1920-1929 Record: 38-34-8 (.475) Coaches: R.F. Clark (1920-1921); William Dietz (1922-1923); Phillip Arbuckle (1924); R.C. Kenney (1925); Hugh Wilson (19261927); F.A. Rockwell (1928-1929) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (1925-1929)/None

Bulldog guard Johnny Wyss was named Tech’s first All-American. The 1939 season brought with it a new coach and a new conference as Ray Davis took over the Bulldog coaching duties, guiding Tech to a 5-6 mark in the school’s first year as a member of the Louisiana Intercollegiate Conference.

Six different coaches led the Bulldogs of the 1920s as Tech posted a winning mark of 38-34-8 during the decade. Coach R.F. Clark helped start the 1920s right for Tech fans as his two Bulldog teams registered winning records of 5-1 and 6-0 in 1920 and 1921. After Clark’s 1920 team lost the first game of the season 12-0 to Northwestern State, he proceeded to win 11 consecutive contests over the span of the next two years. William Dietz picked up where Clark left off in 1922 and 1923 as the Dietz-led Bulldogs posted records of 5-1-1 and 6-2, including a 100-0 win over Clark College in 1922 and a 66-7 victory over Northwestern State in 1923. After struggling through a 1-6-1 season in 1924 under Coach Phillip Arbuckle, Tech began its first athletic affiliation, becoming a member of the multi-state Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1925 under Coach R.C. Kenney. Hugh Wilson coached the Bulldogs to a 5-2-2 record in 1926 and a 3-5 mark in 1927, a year that was highlighted by a game played against Mississippi College at Forsythe Park, the first intercollegiate football game played in Monroe.

HISTORY UNIVERSITY MEDIA

1928: New Football Field Built Then, in the fall of 1928, a new Tech athletic field was built immediately adjoining the men’s gymnasium on the current site of A.E. Phillips Laboratory School. The field was dedicated on Homecoming day Nov. 5, before the game with UL-Lafayette (UL-Lafayette won 45-6).

1930-1939 Record: 47-42-4 (.505) Coaches: George Bohler (1930-1933); L.P McLane (1934-1938); Ray Davis (1939) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (1930-1938)/None; Louisiana Intercollegiate Conference (1939)/None The nickname Bulldogs and school colors of red and blue were decided upon sometime during the early years of the university. However, T.J. “Cotton” and Henry Matthews, two Tech freshman brothers from Bossier City, donated Tech’s first live bulldog in 1930. On the playing field, Coach George Bohler led Tech into the 1930s as the Bulldogs posted a 3-6 season in 1930 before rebounding to record the school’s third perfect season at 7-0 in 1931. 1935: 5,000 Seat Football Stadium Built In 1934, according to The Tech Talk, the Louisiana Legislature appropriated $25,000 for a concrete stadium to be built beginning in January 1935. The stadium seated 3,000, and wooden bleachers holding an additional 2,000 were built on the east side of the field. Again, Tech — under the guidance of Coach L.P. McLane — and UL-Lafayette dedicated the facility as Tech won the game 25-0 on its way to an 8-1 season. It also marked the first night game played at Louisiana Tech. 1937: Johnny Wyss Named Tech’s First All-American The 1937 season brought two more firsts for Louisiana Tech football as the school’s first sellout came Sept. 17, 1937, in the season opener against Oklahoma City. Following a 6-3-2 season,

1940-1949 Record: 50-31-1 (.610) Coach: Joe Aillet (1940-1949) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Louisiana Collegiate Conference (1940-1947)/1941, 1945, 1947; Gulf States Conference (1948-1949)/1949 1940: Joe Aillet Era Begins It is no coincidence that the first 10 years of Joe Aillet’s tenure as football coach at Tech was one of the winningest decades percentage-wise in Bulldog history. 1948: Tech joins Gulf States Conference; Gulf State Championship Aillet, who is still the school’s winningest coach with 152 wins, took over in 1940 and promptly led the Bulldogs to four conference titles during the decade, three as a member of the Louisiana Collegiate Conference and one as a member of the Gulf States Conference which Tech joined in 1948. Aillet, who was instrumental in forming the GSC, was the first president of the league. Tech also posted eight winning seasons during the nine years of football in the ‘40s (football was discontinued during 1943). Aillet, who is a member of the National Football Foundation’s

College Football Hall of Fame as well as being a charter member of the Tech Athletic Hall of Fame, led Tech to a 6-4 record in 1940 before guiding the Bulldogs to the school’s first conference title in 1941 with a mark of 5-4-1. Tech also won the LCC title in 1945 (6-4) and 1947 (5-4), while capturing the GSC title in 1948 (7-2-1) and 1949 (7-2). A number of All-Americans led the Bulldogs during the 1940s, including the likes of Jimmy Harrison (1949), Garland Gregory (1941), Mike Reed (1946, 1947) and Ed Stassi (1948).

1950-1959 Record: 63-27-5 (.663) Coach: Joe Aillet (1950-1959) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Gulf States Conference (1950-1959)/ 1952, 1953, 1955, 1957, 1958, 1959 Amazingly, Joe Aillet’s second decade as the Bulldogs’ head coach was more successful as his teams won an incredible 70 percent of their games during the 1950s while claiming six Gulf States Conference titles. Tech registered 10 winning seasons during the 1950s, never losing more than four games in a year. Tech captured its first GSC title of the decade during 1952, when the Bulldogs went 6-1-2, including wins over Florida State and Memphis State. Aillet also led Tech to Gulf States titles in 1953 (6-3), 1955 (9-1), 1957 (6-4), 1958 (7-3) and 1959 (9-1). During the era, Tech had 33 players earn All-Gulf States Conference honors including the family foursome of Tommy (three times), Pat (twice), Bobby and Joe Hinton (twice). Nine of Aillet’s players were named All-American during the 1950s, including Charles Anderson, Gordon Brown, Joe Hinton, Pat Hinton, Tommy Hinton, Jerry Hudson, Russell Rainbolt, Leo Sanford and Jess Storts.

1960-1969 Record: 57-38 (.600) Coaches: Joe Aillet (1960-1966)’ Maxie Lambright (1967-1969) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Gulf States Conference (1960-1969)/ 1960, 1964, 1969 The 1960s saw plenty of change for Louisiana Tech late in the decade. However, early on it was the same old winning ways for Joe Aillet and his Bulldogs as Tech opened the era with yet another Gulf States Conference title and an 8-2 record. After recording marks of 5-4, 4-4 and 6-3 over the next three seasons, the Bulldogs captured another GSC title in 1964 with a 9-1 record. A 14-7 loss at the hands of Southern Mississippi kept the Bulldogs from obtaining the perfect record. Following another 4-4 season in 1965, the change began. Aillet’s 1966 squad, his last at Tech, fell to 1-9, breaking a streak of 21 consecutive years of non-losing seasons under the Tech legend. Aillet’s 26-year tenure as the Bulldogs head coach was over after 152 wins and 12 conference titles.

claiming the 1969 Gulf States Conference title with an 8-2 mark, the school’s last GSC championship. Forty-eight Bulldogs earned All-Gulf States Conference honors during the 1960s, while Bradshaw, Tom Causey, Jerry Griffin, Joe Hinton, John Williamson, and Mickey Slaughter all earned AllAmerican honors. 1969: Grantland Rice Bowl Appearance Bradshaw was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft following his 1969 senior year.

1970-1979 Record: 78-33-2 (.690) Coaches: Maxie Lambright (1970-1978); Larry Beightol (1979) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Gulf States Conference (1970)/ None; Southland Conference (1971-1979)/1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1977, 1978 It could easily be said that the 1970s was the premier decade in the long history of Louisiana Tech football. 1971: Pioneer Bowl Appearance After opening the era with a 2-8 mark in 1970, Lambright guided the Bulldogs to a 9-2 record and a conference title in 1971, Tech’s first season as a member of the newly formed Southland Conference. However, that was just the beginning. 1972: Grantland Rice Bowl Appearance The next three seasons are considered the greatest three-year stretch in Tech football history. Lambright led the 1972 team to a perfect 12-0 record, and the Bulldogs defeated Tennessee Tech 35-0 in the Grantland Rice Bowl to claim Co-National Champion honors along with Delaware as chosen by the National Football Foundation. 1973: Camellia Bowl Appearance The 1973 team would not be outdone, as Lambright and the Bulldogs finished the season 12-1 and defeated Western Kentucky 34-0 in the Division II National Championship game in Sacramento, Calif. 1974: Pioneer Bowl Appearance Finally, the 1974 team made it three in a row by winning the United Press International College Division National Championship despite losing to Central Michigan, 35-14, in a Division II national

1966: Maxie Lambright Era Begins The following season, Tech hired Maxie Lambright to take over the duties and after posting a 3-7 record in his first season, the Bulldogs resumed their winning ways in 1968 with a 9-2 record, thanks in large part to a young quarterback named Terry Bradshaw. 1968: First Game played in Joe Aillet Stadium During the 1968 season, the Bulldogs also moved into a new home, the 23,000-seat present-day facility named Tech Stadium, which was renamed Joe Aillet Stadium on Nov. 11, 1972, in memory of the Tech coach who had passed away the previous year. Lambright, Bradshaw and the Bulldogs ended the decade

semifinal game. 1977: Independence Bowl Appearance The following season, Tech joined the Division I ranks for the first time, and two years later, the Bulldogs played in their first bowl game, defeating highly favored Louisville, 24-14, in the Independence Bowl in Shreveport. 1978: Independence Bowl Appearance Tech made a return trip to the Independence Bowl in 1978 but was defeated by East Carolina, 35-13. The loss marked the end of another era at Tech, as Maxie Lambright retired from his 12-year coaching career with a 95-36-2 record, trailing only Aillet in number of victories as Tech football coach. Larry Beightol was hired in 1979 and led Tech to a 3-8 record in his only season as the Bulldogs’ head coach. With the success Tech had during the 1970s, it is no wonder the Bulldogs had 66 players earn all-conference accolades, while the likes of Ron Alexander, Larry Anderson, Mike Barber, Roger Carr, Fred Dean, Ken Lantrip, Ardis McCann, Charles McDaniel, Joe McNeely, Chris Richardson and Billy Ryckman earned All-American honors.

1980-1989 Record: 59-53-3 (.513) Coaches: Billy Brewer (1980-1982): A.L. Williams (1983-1986): Carl Torbush (1987); Joe Raymond Peace (1988-1989) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Southland (19801986)/1982, 1984 The 1980s proved to be a turning point for Louisiana Tech football as the university made the decision to move up to Division I-A status starting in 1989. However, the ‘80s started slowly with two straight losing seasons under new head coach Billy Brewer (5-6 in 1980 and 4-6-1 in 1981). However, Brewer’s third and last season was much

more successful as the Bulldogs posted a 10-3 record and won the Southland Conference title in 1982, after being reclassified into Division I-AA. The Bulldogs, led by quarterback Matt Dunigan, won their first-round playoff game before falling to Delaware 17-0 on a rainsoaked afternoon at Joe Aillet Stadium. A.L. Williams took over the coaching reins in 1983 and after a sub-par first year (4-7), Williams guided Tech to the Division I-AA National Championship game in 1984. After winning the Southland Conference title, Tech defeated Mississippi Valley State and Jerry Rice, No. 1 Alcorn State and Middle Tennessee before losing to Montana State 19-6 in Charleston, S.C., in the national championship game.

1987: Tech begins its move to I-A Tech played in the Southland Conference for the final time during the 1986 season as university President F. Jay Taylor’s goal was to leave what he called “mandated mediocrity” — Division I-AA. The Bulldogs competed as a Division I-AA independent in 1987 and 1988 during the “Movin’ Up” campaign. During those two seasons, the Bulldogs fought an uphill battle, playing road games against the likes of Baylor, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Houston, Wyoming, Kansas State, Southern Mississippi and Florida State in an effort to meet Division I-A scheduling requirements. Another 6,000 seats were added to Joe Aillet Stadium as part of meeting those same requirements to move up to the next level.

commemorate head coach Joe Raymond Peace’s Tech team of 1988, which endured the brutal schedule in order to meet Division I-A scheduling requirements. Thirty-one Bulldogs earned All-Southland Conference honors during the 1980s, while three Bulldogs earned All-Independent honors in 1989. Matt Dunigan, Walter Johnson, Doug “Tank” Landry and Glenell Sanders were named All-Americans during the decade.

1990-1999 Record: 60-49-3 (.536) Coaches: Joe Raymond Peace (1990-1995): Gary Crowton (19961998); Jack Bicknell (1999) Conference Affiliation (Years)/Titles: Division I-A Independent (1990-1992, 1996-1999)/none; Big West Conference (1993-1995)/ none 1990: Independence Bowl Appearance Louisiana Tech football opened and closed the 1990s with a bang as the 1990 Bulldog team earned an Independence Bowl berth while the 1999 team earned the school’s first ever Associated Press Top 25 ranking. The 1990s also proved to be the decade for quarterbacks at Tech as the program produced two of the top signal callers in Bulldog history in Jason Martin and Tim Rattay. Coach Joe Raymond Peace led the 1990 Bulldogs, in only the school’s second year as Division I-A Independent, to an 8-3 record during the regular season and an invitation to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. The Bulldogs tied Maryland 34-34 in front of over 48,000 fans in one of the most exciting bowl games of the year. 1993: Tech joins Big West Conference The following season, the Peace-led Bulldogs dropped the opening game and then proceeded to win eight and tie two the rest of the year. After a 5-6 season in 1992, Tech joined the Big West Conference in an effort to help scheduling and secure a bowl tie. However, the Bulldogs’ three seasons in the conference never yielded much success as Peace’s squads compiled a 10-23 mark from 1993-1995. The 1996 season saw a number of changes and much more success as Tech once again joined the ranks of Division I-A Independents and offensive coordinator Gary Crowton was hired as head coach. Crowton, who was known for his great offensive mind and wide-open passing attack, molded quarterbacks Jason Martin and Tim Rattay into two of the nation’s total offense leaders. In 1996, Crowton guided Tech to a 6-5 season, including a 38-23 win at Southeastern Conference foe Mississippi State, while Martin had 3,360 yards and 32 touchdowns. It was just a sign of things to come. The following season, Tech posted a 9-2 mark with wins at Alabama and against California, while sophomore quarterback Tim Rattay led the nation in total offense, passing for 3,881 yards and 34 touchdowns. Rattay shattered his Tech records the following season, passing for 4,943 yards and 46 scores while leading the Bulldogs to a 6-6 record. Rattay’s main target was wide receiver Troy Edwards, who caught 140 passes for 1,996 yards and 27 touchdowns, the latter two marks setting new NCAA records. In a nationally televised game against defending National Champion Nebraska to open the season, Rattay and Edwards showed a preview of what Tech fans had to look forward to as Rattay passed for a school record 590 yards, while Edwards snared 21 passes for 405 yards, a new NCAA single game record. After Crowton departed to the NFL’s Chicago Bears in 1999, Tech Athletics Director Jim Oakes hired Jack Bicknell III as the 30th head coach in school history. Bicknell led Tech to an 8-3 season, a 29-28 upset victory over

eventual Southeastern Conference champion Alabama and the school’s first Associated Press Top 25 ranking. Rattay finished his career ranked No. 2 in NCAA history in career passing yards, total offense and touchdown passes. The 1999 season was made even more successful with an October announcement that the university would be making an allsports move to the Western Athletic Conference in the fall of 2001. During the decade of the ’90s, 54 Bulldog players earned all-conference honors, while Josh Bradley, Edwards, Marty Kent, Rattay, William Roaf, Bobby Slaughter and Willie Smith were named All-Americans.

During the season, the Bulldogs played perennial powers such as Kansas State, Penn State, Auburn and Miami. Despite playing a difficult schedule, the Bulldogs were still one of the top offensive teams in the country, finishing 7th in the nation for passing offense. 2001: Tech joins Western Athletic Conference; Humanitarian Bowl Appearance The Bulldogs made a splash in their new conference by going 7-1 in league play and claiming the 2001 WAC Championship. Louisiana Tech overcame an early conference loss to win its last six conference games to take the WAC title. The championship earned the Bulldogs a berth in the 2001 Humanitarian Bowl, the school’s first bowl appearance since the 1990 Independence Bowl. Despite a 49-24 loss to Clemson in the Humanitarian Bowl, the season was still a success and proved that Louisiana Tech would be a foe to be reckoned with in the Western Athletic Conference. Tech began the 2002 season by defeating eventual Houston Bowl participant and Big 12 foe Oklahoma State to open the season in a thrilling last minute 39-36 contest. However, Tech’s early non-conference schedule proved brutal with road losses to Clemson, No. 15 Penn State and No. 24 Texas A&M. For the seventh straight season the Bulldogs ranked in the nation’s top 10 in passing offense while senior running back Joe Smith earned first team All-WAC honors, becoming the first Tech player since 1994 to rush for over 1,000 yards. The 2003 season started with a nationally televised home contest against defending national champion Miami at Independence Stadium in Shreveport as a Bulldog home record crowd of 43,279 witnessed the historic event. And although the 2003 season didn’t go as planned with Tech finishing 5-7, the Bulldogs did have plenty of bright moments topped by Tech’s 20-19 come-from-behind road win over Michigan State, a team that went on to earn a Top 25 ranking and eventually earned a spot in the Alamo Bowl against Nebraska. Individual highlights included senior kicker Josh Scobee becoming Louisiana Tech’s second all-time scoring leader with 339 points. Senior quarterback Luke McCown finished his career ranked in the top 5 in NCAA Division I history in passing yards and total offense. 2004: Tech faces Top 25 schedule; Pulls upset over Fresno State Tough wouldn’t describe Louisiana Tech’s schedule in 2004 as the Bulldogs played seven games against eventual bowl-bound teams and six games against teams ranked in the Top 25 at one point of the season. And although Tech’s 6-6 record fell one game short of being bowl eligible, it was still an accomplishment.

LA TECH


The biggest moment of 2004 came in Tech’s 28-21 win over No. 17 ranked Fresno State Oct. 2 at Joe Aillet Stadium. Running back Ryan Moats rushed for 236 yards and four scores and the Tech defense intercepted two passes late in the game to seal the victory. Moats shattered the school record with 1,774 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns before declaring himself eligible for the 2005 NFL Draft (third round, Philadelphia Eagles). 2008: Bulldogs Claim Independence Bowl Championship Title Louisiana Tech opened its season with a visit from Southeastern Conference foe Mississippi State, the first SEC team to ever come to Joe Aillet Stadium. And after the Mississippi-based Bulldogs left after a 22-14 LA Tech win, they might be the last for a while. The win marked the first win over an SEC team since 1999 when Tech topped eventual SEC champion Alabama 29-28 in Birmingham, Alabama. The Bulldogs continued their winning ways throughout the season, going 7-5 in the regular season and 5-3 in the WAC which was good enough for a second place finish. Included in the seven regular season wins was a 21-0 shutout victory at San Jose State, the first shutout by a Tech team since 1996 and the first road shutout since 1988. Tech earned its first invite to a bowl game since 2001 as the Bulldogs received an invitation to play in the Independence Bowl against Northern Illinois. Tech would capture the 2008 Independence Bowl title by virtue of a 17-10 victory over the Huskies, highlighted by a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Phillip Livas. The Bowl victory was the first bowl win for the Bulldogs since they won the 1977 Independence Bowl. Running back Daniel Porter became the eighth Louisiana Tech running back to ever rush for over 1,000 yards in a season as he rushed for 1,164 yards and nine touchdowns in 2008. Tech also placed a program record seven players on the AllWAC team, led by first team members in Porter, Livas, defensive tackle D’Anthony Smith and safety Antonio Baker. In 2009 Porter continued to showcase his rushing talents, becoming the school’s all-time leading rusher with 3,352 rushing yards to his credit while Dennis Morris earned all-America honors and was named the College Football Performance Awards’ National Tight End of the Year after leading the country in touchdown receptions among tight ends.

2008 Independence Bowl Louisiana Tech 17, Northern Illinois10 December 28, Shreveport, La. Phillip Livas’ 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a stellar defensive performance led Louisiana Tech to a 17-10 win over Northern Illinois at the 33rd Independence Bowl at Independence Stadium in Shreveport. The win was Tech’s first in a bowl since a 1977 and only the third bowl appearance since the program joined the FBS in 1989. “Let me start by giving Northern Illinois a tremendous amount of credit,” said Tech head coach Derek Dooley. “Coach (Jerry) Kill and his staff do a great job. They are an outstanding football team; every bit as good as advertised.” After Northern Illinois took an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter, Livas, who was named offensive MVP of the game, took the ensuing kickoff and galloped 97 yards for a score. “The return was a sideline return,” Livas said. “Once I got past the defender, I just knew I had to make a play. We needed to get the momentum back.” Livas’ play ignited not only the partisan Bulldog crowd at Independence Stadium, but also the LA Tech defense. After allowing a NIU touchdown on only its second possession, the Bulldog defensive unit limited the Huskies to three points over the final three quarters of play.

“It was a phenomenal defensive effort by both teams,” Dooley said. “We got better as the game went on, and we knew it was going to down to the last drive. We talked to our players all week about playing to the last play of the game.” Senior defensive back Weldon Brown, playing before a home crowd -- Brown prepped at Bossier High School -- , earned defensive MVP honors after recording a career-high 14 tackles, one fumble recovery, one interception and a key pass breakup on a NIU fourth down play early in the game. “This was great,” Brown said. “It’s a privilege to earn the defensive MVP honors, and I’m grateful to end my career (in Shreveport).” Northern Illinois jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on an 8-yard pass from Chandler Harnish to fullback Kyle Skarb with 1:56 to play in the first quarter. The play culminated an 11-play drive covering 69 yards in 1:56. The lead was short-lived as “Saturday Night” Livas took the ensuing kickoff, ran straight up the middle before veering left towards the Bulldog sideline and raced 97 yards for a touchdown. It was Livas’ second career kickoff return for a touchdown

and the sixth longest in Bulldog history. Livas, who also has two punt returns for scores this season, now has four returns for scores in his career, the second most trailing only Larry Anderson with five. The kickoff return was the second longest in Indy Bowl history and the first since Deuce McAllister returned one for Ole Miss against Texas Tech in 1998. After a three-and-out by NIU on its next possession, the Bulldogs took a 14-7 lead on an 11-yard Daniel Porter touchdown run with 13:41 to play in the second quarter. The touchdown came on a draw play on second and goal and capped a 5-play, 42-yard drive over 2:04.

NIU came out of the lockerroom and marched 66 yards on its first possession of the third quarter before Tech’s defense stiffened, forcing a 20-yard field goal by Mike Salerno. The big play for NIU during the drive was a third down completion from Harnish to Marcus Perez that covered 47 yards and gave the Huskies the ball on the Tech 8-yard line. With the Bulldogs clinging to a sevenpoint lead, the Tech defense came through down the stretch. Over the last five offensive possessions of the game for NIU, the Tech defense held the Huskies to only 103 yards and NIU ventured past midfield only once -- the Bulldogs defense held on a fourthdown-and-five play on its own 46 yard line with less than two minutes to play. The eight wins is the most by a Bulldog team since the 1999 Tech squad posted an 8-3 mark and the bowl win was the first since the 1977 Independence Bowl.

2001 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl Clemson 49, Louisiana Tech 24 December 31, Boise, Idaho Four third-quarter touchdowns, including two Woody Dantzler scoring passes, were too much for Louisiana Tech to overcome, as the Clemson Tigers downed the Bulldogs 49-24 in the 2001 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl before 23,472 fans at Bronco Stadium Dec. 31, 2001. Trailing only 14-10 at the half, Tech failed to find an answer for Dantzler and company in the third quarter. Dantzler, who finished the afternoon completing 15 of 23 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns, found running back Bernard Rambert for perhaps the game’s biggest play early in the second half. Leading 21-10, Rambert caught a short pass out of the backfield on third down, and after appearing to be stopped short, spun out of the arms of four Bulldog tacklers and raced 62 yards down the sideline to give Clemson a 28-10 advantage. The play seemed to take all of the life out of the Bulldogs. A Rambert 21-yard touchdown scamper, followed by an Airese Currie 19-yard jaunt, increased the Tiger lead to 42-10 heading into the final stanza. The loss of All-WAC selections Bobby Gray and Jamie Nichols to first half injuries added to the Bulldogs’ defensive difficulties. After holding Clemson to only 14 points and 207 yards in the first half, the injury-riddled Bulldogs’ defense allowed 35 points and 341 yards in the second stanza.

The Tigers drove down the field in the final three minutes and instead of running out the clock, attempted a pass into the end zone with under 30 seconds left before also attempting to run the ball in from the oneyard line on the game’s final play. Tech took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a Josh Scobee 29-yard field goal on the Bulldogs’ first possession. Clemson scored the game’s first touchdown when Dantzler found tight end Mike Bailey from 10 yards out for a 7-3 lead with 5:48 remaining in the first quarter. The Bulldogs retook the lead at 10-7 when McCown raced in from 11 yards away midway through the second quarter. However, a 15-yard penalty against Tech on the extra point allowed Clemson great field position on its next drive. Two plays later, Dantzler threw his second touchdown pass of the game and Clemson took a 14-10 advantage into the locker room. One of the bright spots for Tech was the play of Daigre, who earned the most valuable player of the game award for the Bulldogs. Daigre caught 10 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown in his final game. Despite the disappointing loss, the Bulldogs finished their season 7-5, including the program’s first Western Athletic Conference title.

1990 Independence Bowl Louisiana Tech 34, Maryland 34 December 15, Shreveport, La. An Independence Bowl record crowd of 48,325 showed up to see Louisiana Tech and Maryland battle to a 34-34 tie in one of the most exciting games of the bowl season. Chris Boniol’s 29-yard field goal as time expired gave the Bulldogs the tie. Louisiana Tech, participating in its first bowl game since joining the Division I-A ranks prior to the 1989 season, fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter as Maryland running back Troy Jackson scored on a one-yard run and a two-yard run. However, the Bulldogs would not let the predominantly Louisiana Tech crowd down as they fought back to tie the game at 14-14 at the half. Tech’s first touchdown came with 8:30 remaining in the second quarter on a five-yard Michael Richardson run, and Boniol’s extra point made the score 14-7 Terps. Head coach Joe Raymond Peace’s team tied the game with only 0:17 remaining in the first half on a three-yard Jason Davis touchdown run as the two teams entered their respective locker rooms tied at 14. Louisiana Tech came out in the second half and quickly took a 21-14 lead on a Richardson one-yard run.

Jackson scored his third touchdown of the game for Maryland, but the extra point failed as Tech led 21-20.

Maryland scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to pull ahead 34-31, the last coming with only 0:52 remaining on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Scott Zolak to Barry Johnson on a fourth down play.

1984 NCAA Division I-AA Championship Montana State 19, Louisiana Tech 6 December 15, Charleston, S.C. After an impressive run in the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs, Louisiana Tech struggled in the 1984 National Championship game as Montana State defeated the Bulldogs 19-6. After scoring 131 points in its three previous playoff wins to advance to the title game, the Bulldog offense sputtered all afternoon long in large part because of the stellar play of the Bobcats defense, which sacked Tech quarterback Kyle Gandy 11 times. Montana State opened the game with a 33-yard Mark Carter field goal on its second possession after Gandy threw an interception deep in Bulldog territory. Two possessions later, following a blocked punt by Montana State, the Bobcats scored the game’s first touchdown as Kelly Bradley hit Joe Bignell for a 17-yard scoring strike. Carter’s extra point was wide left, but Montana State still led 9-0. Montana State’s defense held Louisiana Tech without a first down in the opening 15 minutes of play while forcing two Bulldog turnovers. The second quarter started better for the Bulldogs as Tech marched down to the Montana State 27-yard line before Gandy fumbled and the Bobcats recovered, ending the Tech scoring threat. Montana State upped its advantage to 16-0 as it drove 80 yards, capped by a Bradley to Bignell 33-yard scoring strike. Carter added a 48-yard field goal right before the half as the Bobcats took a commanding 19-0 lead into the locker room. After gaining only 62 total yards of offense in the first half, Tech had little more success in the final two quarters of play. However, Gandy’s 10-yard touchdown pass to Mike Sherman with only 0:48 remaining in the game was too little too late as Montana State won the 1984 Division I-AA

Middle Tennessee got on the scoreboard in the second quarter with a field goal and trailed 7-3 going into the half. The Blue Raiders took a 10-7 lead in the third quarter on a seven-play, 46-yard drive that ended with a two-yard touchdown by running back Gerald Anderson.

Gandy hit 16-of-28 passes for 134 yards and one touchdown while Breske led all receivers with 44 yards on four receptions.

Tech used a high-powered passing attack and a stingy defense to defeat the favored University of Louisville, 24-14, in the school’s first division I bowl game appearance. Bulldog sophomore quarterback Keith Thibodeaux was named the game’s most valuable player, completing 19 of 39 passes for 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Cardinals looked to take control of the game early when safety Kevin Miller returned a Bulldog punt 60 yards for the game’s first touchdown less than two minutes into the contest. However, that was the end of the road for Louisville as Thibodeaux proceeded to pick apart the Cardinal secondary. The Opelousas native drove the Bulldogs 68 yards to paydirt, tying the score.

In Terry Bradshaw’s final appearance as a Bulldog, he completed 20 passes for 299 yards, but he was sacked 12 times for 143 yards in losses as the Bulldogs fell 34-14 to East Tennessee in the 1969 Grantland Rice Bowl.

That was as close as Louisiana Tech got in the game though, as East Tennessee iced the game with two last stanza scores.

The Legend of the Bulldog The story takes place in the autumn of 1899 when five Tech students were returning home from school. They came upon an old, hungry bulldog sitting under a tree. The boys fed the dog with what food they had and continued their journey. When they finally reached their destination, however, they found that the dog had followed them. Being sensitive young men, they sought permission for the dog to stay the night, and the landlord agreed – if the animal remained in the kitchen. That night the house caught fire. Their overnight guest was the first to awaken. The dog ran from room to room, rousing everyone in the building. Then, after all the other occupants had made their way to safety, one boy remained inside. The bulldog re-entered the smoke-filled house in an apparent attempt to rescue him, not realizing the boy had escaped in a different direction. After the fire was extinguished and smoke had finally cleared, the boys went inside to see if the dog had indeed made it out to safety. But when they entered they found the lifeless bulldog lying in an unburned corner of one room. He had died from the smoke and the heat. Naturally, the young men were shaken due to the death of their new friend. So they picked him up and carried him to the place they had found him the previous day. They then dug a grave and wrapped him in two jackets – one red and the other blue. When the boys returned to school and related their story, the entire campus mourned the death of the homeless dog. The dog with no name had found a place in the hearts of Tech students. Two years later, Tech organized a football team and decided the team needed not only school colors, but a mascot. A unanimous decision was reached as the bulldog, the first hero of Tech, was given the honor and the red and blue blankets he was buried in were made the school colors.

There’s a lot to look forward to at Louisiana Tech, as university President Dan Reneau knows well. The university is growing with the increased enrollment of students and the construction of new facilities. Under Reneau’s leadership, the university is on track in its long-term Tech 2020 goal, a strategy to ensure the university stays in tune with academic, economic, and research trends in the state, region, and nation. “The transformation of higher education in Louisiana is taking place before our eyes,” Reneau said. “The faculty and staff of Louisiana Tech have chosen to use this transformation as an opportunity to strengthen their institution through a collective and progressive recruitment and retention effort.” The university has continually thrived with Reneau at the helm in a variety of areas, including: * New construction and renovation of buildings. Currently, the first buildings of Tech’s Enterprise Campus are being constructed, and renovations include the expansion of the Maxie Lambright Intramural Center, the Technology Transfer Center and the Visual Arts Center. The $20 million Quest for Excellence initiative was also announced in Summer 2010, and plans are in the works for the construction of a 90,000-plus square-foot multipurpose facility in the south end zone of Joe Aillet Stadium. The new facility will benefit all student athletes and will include a state-of-the-art sports medicine facility, a new strength and conditioning complex and a new academic center. * All-time high average ACT score of entering freshmen. The average ACT score of beginning freshmen increased from 22.5 in the fall of 2004 to 23.5 in the fall of 2009. * Received national accolades. The university was ranked among the nation’s best colleges and universities and moved up to a Tier 3 ranking by U.S. News and World Report’s 2010 Best Colleges publication. In addition, Louisiana Tech achieved the state’s highest ranking among public colleges and universities, according to Washington Monthly’s 2009 College Rankings. * Performance-based Funding. Tech fared better than all Louisiana public universities for performance-based funding. * National bookstore chain comes to campus. Barnes & Noble bought out the bookstore and will offer more book selections with plans to expand in three to five years. * Increased enrollment recognized. In Fall 2009, Louisiana Tech’s total enrollment stood at 11,289 students, which represents an addition of 339 students, an increase of 3.1 percent. Reneau is leaving a lasting legacy with Louisiana Tech, especially with the engineering program. Reneau graduated with his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Tech in 1963 and received his master’s in the same subject in 1964. He received his Ph.D. in 1966 from Clemson University. Reneau became a faculty member at Tech in 1967 as an assistant professor of chemical engineering and made his way up the ladder to associate professor in 1969 and a full professor in 1973. Reneau’s professional experience includes serving as a research engineer for both Esso and Humble oil companies and as a consultant for five other corporations and universities. Reneau also has studied abroad at Johannes Gutenburg University in Mainz, West Germany, as an Alexander-von-Humbolt Stiftung visiting professor and also to England at Cambridge and Bristol universities as a visiting professor. At Tech, Reneau established the biomedical engineering department and was named its head in 1972. The department became the fifth accredited department for its undergraduate curriculum in the United States, and the doctoral program was awarded a commendation of excellence by the Board of Regents. In 1980, Reneau was promoted to vice president for academic affairs, serving as the chief academic officer to some 400 faculty in six colleges and three professional schools with more than 160 different degree programs. During his tenure as vice president, every major program became accredited, and he was also instrumental in

establishing the Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science. Reneau was selected as the university’s 13th president Feb. 20, 1987, and the public endorsed their new president before the decision was even made. The university paper, The Tech Talk, issued a rare endorsement for the Tech alumnus; the Student Government Association supported his selection through a resolution sent to Baton Rouge; many faculty members circulated a petition for his appointment; and even the Faculty Senate gave Reneau a stamp of approval. When hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the Louisiana coast in 2005, under Reneau’s leadership, Tech welcomed hundreds of evacuees and offered them shelter in Caruthers Residence Hall. Tech also opened its doors to students from various universities in New Orleans as well as the Tulane University football team. Tech continues to flourish under Reneau’s leadership. In 2007, the university and its president received a glowing review from a team led by national educational consultant James Fisher. Tech’s graduate programs continue to prosper, as well. A total of ten doctoral degrees are now available at Tech, including a new doctoral program in industrial and organizational psychology that began in 2009. In 2007, Tech produced the first graduate in the world who holds a bachelor’s degree in nanosystems engineering. Last year, Tech reported a record graduate student enrollment with graduate enrollment totaling 2,530, an increase of 9.3 percent. As Tech holds strong to its 2020 goal, progress is echoed by research, such as a study conducted by the Applied Research Technology Corporation of Baton Rouge. The study shows that Louisiana Tech students have an annual statewide spending impact of $145 million and contribute over 56 hours of volunteerism per student, per year. Over the past 10 years, 65 percent of Tech’s graduates have stayed in Louisiana with total earnings of nearly $1 billion. “One of Louisiana Tech’s greatest strengths has always been the quality of its students,” Reneau said. “Their success, both during and after college, will impact not only the future of our university, but also the future of our region and our state. As a campus community, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to continue recruiting, educating and graduating the next generation of Louisiana’s leaders.” Reneau, a native of Woodville, Miss., was born June 11, 1940.

Our vision is to build a program to a level where we can be associated with universities that aspire to academic and athletic excellence at the highest level. “This goal is consistent with the vision President Reneau has established for the University which is to become north Louisiana’s premier national research university. In order to accomplish this vision we must engage all of our 80,000 alumni, fans and supporters and ask them for their participation. It takes resources to achieve our goal, and we need every one to support the program.” During his tenure Van De Velde has been instrumental in a number of accomplishments that have helped further the advancement of the University’s athletic department, including: • Developed, negotiated and implemented $6.75 million multi-media and marketing rights agreement with Learfield Communications.

and the women’s indoor and outdoor track and field teams won both the 2009 and 2010 league titles. The University’s student-athletes have also seen success in the classroom since his arrival on campus as this past year saw eight of the 16 program’s record their highest multi-year APR ever and seven record their highest single-year APR ever. During the 2009-10 season, Tech saw 94 student-athletes earn Academic all-WAC honors for their work in the classrooms while senior sprinter Antoinette Cobb earned the Honda Inspiration Award for her work both on the track and in the classroom while overcoming a battle with cancer. Van De Velde came to Tech with impressive credentials, having served as an administrator in intercollegiate athletics for over 20 years. Van De Velde served as athletics director at Iowa State University and Utah State University and as a senior administrator at the University of Oklahoma, University of Missouri and Kansas State University. Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State University included an unprecedented five bowl appearances in six years and the highest national AP football poll ranking (9th) in school history. Iowa State’s 2001 average football attendance of 45,172 reached its highest watermark in 18 years. In 2002 and 2003, total football attendance exceeded 300,000; the most at ISU in two decades. The emergence of the Cyclone football program on a national stage with Van De Velde at the department helm was affirmed in 2002 when Iowa State was chosen to play No. 1 Florida State University in the Eddie Robinson Classic. During Van De Velde’s tenure at Iowa State, the men’s and women’s basketball teams won Big XII conference championships and participated in the 2001, 2002 and 2005 NCAA basketball tournaments. Van De Velde, with a track record for generating revenue, increased the total annual operating revenues for the Cyclone athletic department from $19.6 million to $30 million dollars over a five year period. Revenue generated from fundraising, ticket sales, marketing and corporate sponsorships, licensing, radio and television reached all-time highs during his tenure. In 2005, total fundraising increased from $4.85 million to $8.6 million and the annual giving achieved the highest membership total in its history with more than 5,500 donors participating and a record $4 million dollars in annual contributions. Under Van De Velde’s leadership, over 2,000 new donors joined the National Cyclone Club. Including capital project gifts, scholarship endowments and annual contributions, over $40 million dollars was raised from 2001 through 2005. Iowa State’s graduation rate of 89 percent for student-athletes who complete their eligibility was second in the Big XII Conference,

and graduation rates for minority student-athletes more than tripled during Van De Velde’s tenure. In 2004-05, Iowa State was one of eight universities nationally to have its football team win a bowl game and have its men and women’s basketball teams participate in the NCAA tournament. The Sporting News in 2001 rated Iowa State as the seventh best athletic program among more than 115 NCAA Division I-A programs nationally. The ranking considered competitive success, graduation rates, fan support and NCAA compliance to determine national rank. During his time as athletic director at Utah State University, Van De Velde made his mark by hiring Stew Morrill as the head men’s basketball coach. Morrill has guided Utah State to nine straight postseason tournaments and is the winningest coach in the history of the Utah State program. While serving as the associate athletic director for football operations under head coach Bill Snyder at Kansas State University, Van De Velde was part of the resurrection of Wildcat football in Manhattan as the program became a national power participating in five bowl games. Van De Velde was recipient of the Admiral U.S. Grant Sharp Award at the 1997 Holiday Bowl for his contributions to the Kansas State football team when the nationally ranked Wildcats finished with a 10-2 record. As the senior associate athletic for external affairs at the University of Oklahoma, Van De Velde served as the senior administrative officer for the athletic department and oversaw the areas of fundraising, marketing, corporate sponsorships, ticket sales, media relations and licensing. Van De Velde managed units that generated in excess of $35 million in annual revenues.

As associate athletic director for development at the University of Missouri, Van De Velde planned and initiated a $50 million dollar capital campaign for facility improvements for the Sports Park at MU. Van De Velde received the General Robert Neiland Award from the National Football Foundation in 2005 for his service and contributions as an athletic director. Throughout his career in college athletics, Van De Velde has served on numerous NCAA committees including the Championships and Competition Cabinet, the Football Issues Committee, the Financial Aid Committee and the Peer Review Committee for NCAA certification. He and his wife Debbie, who is a Kansas State alum and who works in the LA Tech College of Business, are the proud parents of 10-year-old daughter, Ashley who is entering the fourth grade.

MARY KAY

HUNGATE

Deputy Athletics Director/ Senior Woman Administrator Deputy Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator Mary Kay Hungate returns for her 26th year as a member of the Louisiana Tech athletics department and has proven to be an integral part in the recent emergence of the Tech teams on the playing fields and in the classroom. Not only does Hungate serve as the sports administrator for men’s and women’s basketball, women’s soccer, softball, women’s tennis, women’s bowling and women’s volleyball, but she is also in charge of NCAA compliance for all of the university’s 16 NCAA sanctioned programs.

196

As one of the top two ranking administrators in the Tech athletics department, Hungate is part of a senior staff that has been instrumental in garnering a number of national awards, including the 2010 Turnkey PRISM Award - which recognizes colleges for managerial excellence across four areas: marketing/branding; fan development; community relations; and customer/client service. The Tech athletics department has also finished in the Top 10 the past two years in the Excellence in Management Cup, which recognizes the most efficient athletic departments in the nation. Hungate serves a vital role in the hiring of coaches. Hungate proved instrumental in the decision by former Tech Kodak All-American and WNBA All-Star Teresa Weatherspoon - who played for Hungate in the late-80s - to return to Louisiana Tech in June of 2008. Weatherspoon was promoted to head coach in February of 2009 where she led the Lady Techsters to the WAC regular season title and a berth in the WNIT. This past season, she led Tech to the 2010 WAC Tournament title and a return to the NCAA Tournament. She also served as the point person in the hiring process of head women’s soccer coach Kevin Sherry and head women’s volleyball coach Matt Sonnichsen. Sherry led the Lady Techster soccer team to two straight winning seasons the past two years - the first in program history - and the program’s first ever WAC victory. In only his second season at the helm, Sonnichsen, who was a three-time All-American and two-time National Champion during his playing days at UCLA, led the Lady Techsters to 15 wins - the most since 2005 - as well as a program record in WAC victories. Another of Hungate’s responsibilities includes overseeing the academic side of the Tech athletics department, another area which has improved drastically as proven by the fact LA Tech’s graduation rate continues to be one of the highest in the state (Federal Graduation Report), including ranking No. 1 in the state of Louisiana and the Western Athletic Conference in recent years. This past year eight of the 16 NCAA sanctioned programs at LA Tech earn their highest multi-year APR score ever while 94 studentathletes earned Academic all-WAC honors. Hungate also plays an important role in LA Tech’s NCAA Certification process. As a member of the Steering Committee and the liaison between the athletic department and the University’s Self Study Committees, she provides the information needed for the committees to write their reports. In 2006, LA Tech completed its second NCAA Certification cycle and once again was certified without conditions. Hungate joined the Louisiana Tech staff in 1985 as an assistant women’s basketball coach and remained in that role for five years. During that time, the Lady Techsters participated in four Final Fours and won the NCAA National Championship in 1988. In 1990, Hungate made a move out of coaching and became assistant athletics director for academics and compliance as well as senior woman administrator. One of Hungate’s early accomplishments as assistant director of athletics was the creation of the Louisiana Tech Athletic Academic Center program. Hungate has served terms on the NCAA Division I Academics/ Eligibility/Compliance Cabinet, the NCAA Division I Interpretations/ Legislative Review Subcommittee, the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators Wade Trophy Selection Committee and as an NCAA Peer Reviewer. She has also served on the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Issues Committee since 2004. She currently serves on the Western Athletic Conference Council, the Conferences’ Legislative Review Committee, the Finance Committee and the Code Book Committee. In addition, along with Athletics Director Bruce Van De Velde, she represents the athletics department as an ex-officio member of the LA Tech Athletics Council. Hungate’s professional career began as Women’s Sports Coordinator and head volleyball, head basketball and head softball coach at Illinois’ Carl Sandburg Junior College. She spent four seasons at the college where she guided the basketball team to a mark of 80-22 which included an 11th place finish in the 1976 NJCAA national tournament. In 1978 Hungate took over the head coaching position at Richwoods High School in Peoria, Ill., and quickly compiled one of the top prep coaching records in the nation. During her seven seasons at Richwoods High School, Hungate’s team ran up an impressive record of 195-13, including a state-record 63 consecutive victories. Hungate was named the National Coach of the Year by USA Today in 1985. Before coming to Louisiana Tech, Hungate amassed a career coaching record of 275-35.
