OLIVIA LUKASEWICH

“Don’t pass over Tech because it is a small school or in a small town. The atmosphere is great and very supportive of the school. I love the small class sizes; the teachers know you by name and you get much more personal attention than you might be able to get somewhere else. It really is a family atmosphere.”

LISA MERRITT and BRAD HERMAN team up in the Louisiana Tech athletics academic center to help the University’s studentathletes excel in the classroom and ultimately earn their degrees, something that is the No. 1 goal for the administration and coaches at Tech.

“Tech has helped me mature into the student I am today. I started slowly, but Tech was very inspirational with helping me work toward my overall goal because my professors and coaches taught me that through hard work and faith, all things are possible. I’ve met people here who will be my friends for the rest of my life. Just as Tech will be.” – Philip Longino, Jr. (Houston, Texas)

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), California, Michigan State, Mississippi State (twice), Ole Miss and Oklahoma State since the mid 90s.

LOUISIANA TECH TO FACE BATTLE OF EXPECTATIONS, LOOKING FOR REPEAT CONFERENCE TITLE IN 2012 Entering its third year under head coach Sonny Dykes and coming off a Western Athletic Conference title, the 2012 installment of Bulldog Football is expected to be improved over last year’s championship team but will have to battle those expectations as well. The Bulldogs return 16 starters (and 50 letterwinners) off a team that rebounded from a 1-4 start to win seven straight games and claim the school’s first WAC title in a decade.

OFFENSE

With eight starters returning, the Sonny Dykes- and Tony Franklin-led offense is expected to continue the marked improvements it made last fall, when it averaged 30.1 points and almost 400 yards of offense per game. While the last two years have seen a lack of stability at quarterback, Tech enters the 2012 campaign with the job on Colby Cameron’s shoulders to win or lose. Last year Cameron replaced the departed Nick Isham midway through the year as he led Tech to a win at Utah State and never looked back. The redshirt senior played in seven games – started in six – and threw for over 1,600 yards and 13 touchdowns in that span. Backing Cameron up will be Zach Griffith, a redshirt sophomore who sat out last season after joining the program from Fullerton Community College. In the T-Day Spring Game, Griffith showed he was more than capable as he was 38-for-44 for 419 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions while directing the second team offense. Following Cameron and Griffith, Tarik Hakmi and Andy McAlindon stand ready to serve while Texas Tech transfer Scotty Young will direct the scout team offense in 2012 as he is forced to sit out due to the NCAA transfer rule. The offensive back field looks to be as talented and deep as ever despite Lennon Creer exhausting his eligibility and the tragic loss of 21-year old running back Tyrone Duplessis to a heart

attack on Feb. 2, 2012. Former walk-on tailback Hunter Lee emerged as the team’s go-to (and only) running back late last year as injuries and other circumstances decimated Tech’s backfield. Lee stepped up admirably with 650 yards rushing on 135 carries and five touchdowns, averaging 4.8 yards per rush. Ray Holley ran for 144 yards on 36 carries before a back injury at Mississippi State ended his season early, but he has been granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA. A pair of talented freshman will follow that experienced pair as Tevin King and Kenneth Dixon round out the tailbacks. The two are both highly regarded athletes but with very different styles as King brings a speedy, quick move presence on the field while Dixon, at 6-0, 211 pounds prior to camp, has a tough downfield-running presence. While Cameron may be the socalled “Field Marshall” there is no mistaking the leadership of “General” Quinton Patton whether he is on or off the field. Patton registered over 1,200 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns last season, averaging 15.2 yards per catch and an explosive manner that can leave defenders trailing in the dust. His off-the-field leadership is highly regarded as well, providing a source of comedy or motivation when needed. Patton will be backed up by the speedy and experienced Richie Casey and D.J. St. Julien. Casey is dangerous at any position as he even connected with David Gru on a 45-yard pass at Utah State that set up the team’s first touchdown. After spending most of 2011 battling injuries, Myles White emerged late in the year as a dan-

gerous inside receiver capping the season off with 110 yards receiving including a 61-yard touchdown catch against No. 15 TCU in the Poinsettia Bowl. He finished the year with a respectable 414 yards receiving, averaging 13.8 yards per catch. White is expected to be spelled by newcomer Travis Reyes, a junior college product of Foothill JC. Also on the inside will be the steady hands of David Gru, a quiet but constant receiver that is as reliable as anyone else on the field. Gru averaged 13.0 yards in his 26 catches (339 yards total) with one touchdown. He will be aided by Jon Greenwalt at the inside receiver “Y” position. Greenwalt joined the program in time for spring practice and exploded in the T-Day Spring Game with six catches for 161 yards. Rounding out the receiving positions will be Jacarri Jackson leading the way at the other outside position. The coaching staff spent most of 2011 working with Jackson on becoming a more consistent player, utilizing his talents more often. Jackson’s biggest play

of the year came at Nevada with his over-the-shoulder, 25-yard catch from Cameron that set up the game-winning touchdown two plays later. Also at the “X” receiver position will be D.J. Banks, a Tulane transfer that sat out the 2011 season but brings explosive athleticism to the field. Banks caught four passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in the T-Day Spring Game showing he is dangerous on the field, particularly in gaining yards after the catch. Paving the way up front will be a talented offensive line that returns four starters that have a combined 91 starts between them. The line is led by center Stephen Warner, a preseason watch listee for both the Outland and Rimington Trophies and a first team All-WAC selection last year. A former walk-on from nearby Ruston High School, Warner has the unique job of not only being the center but also calling the cadence prior to snaps. Aiding Warner and his 28 career starts on the front lines are veterans Oscar Johnson (13 career starts), Jordan Mills (22 career starts) and Kevin Saia (28 career starts). Johnson, a right guard last year, has moved to left tackle to replace the graduated Kris Cavitt and Matthew Shepperd has moved from back-up center to projected right guard. Shepperd will spend fall camp battling

www.LATechSports.com

Joshua Robinson for that position. Larry Banks is expected to battle Oscar Johnson for the left tackle spot while Josh Parrish and Jeremy Graffree will be available to spell Saia at left guard. Alec Davis and Jens Danielson, both of whom joined the program in time for spring practice, will be the back-ups at center and right tackle, respectively. Overall, this year’s offensive line has the most depth it has had in years.

DEFENSE

Tommy Spangler’s “GATA” defense was opportunistic and swarming last season, taking advantage of opponent’s miscues last year and creating those miscues when they weren’t presented. The highlight of the defense was ranking third in the country in interceptions, third in pick-sixes and 12th in turnover margin while posting the best scoring defense in two decades. The challenge for the group this fall will be to replicate that success despite losing five starters. The defensive line may be the most experienced group as a whole to return despite the loss of Matt Broha and Christian Lacey. Returning with plenty of game experience this fall is second team All-WAC tackle Justin Ellis and Shakeil Lucas, both projected to be starters. Jon’al White also returns to mak the line while Vince Cano is making the move from offensive line to defensive line. On the ends, IK Enemkpali is a strong, athletic end with the ability to pressure the quarterback. Enemkpali registered 3.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for a loss last year and those numbers are expected to rise in 2012 as he gets stronger and gains more experience. He will be backed up by Andre Taylor, who continues to improve at the end. On the left side of the line, Kendrick James will replace Broha as the starter and registered 19 tackles including 1.5

sacks last season. He is expected to share time on the left end with Vontarrius Dora, an athletic defensive lineman that redshirted his true freshman year in 2011. Overall, on the defensive line the term “starter” is just a phrase used but with no meaning. Guided by Stan Eggen, Tech’s defensive line rotates 8-10 players through any given series to keep the players fresh and explosive. The losses at linebacker is where Tech’s defense will be affected the most. Replacing a pair of All-WAC linebackers in Adrien Cole and Jay Dudley is no small task, especially when you consider Cole was the 2011 WAC Defensive Player of the Year. Cole and Dudley combined for 230 tackles, 31 tackles for a loss and five interceptions last season. At MIKE linebacker, Solomon Randle is expected to start and is the most experienced linebacker on the roster with eight career starts. Randle actually has considerable experience, sharing playing time with Cole in 2010 and gaining more experience in 2011. He will be followed by Ches Morrison on the depth chart, a blue collar player that has spent the last few years working hard on the scout team and on special teams. At SAM linebacker, Rufus Porter showed during spring practice he is ready for the task. Porter was one of the more vocal players on the team during spring practice although he did not play in the T-Day Spring Game. Also vying for time will be Antonio Mitchum, a player who saw time on special teams last year and finished the T-Day Spring Game with 13 total tackles including 2.5 tackles for a loss. Leading the secondary will be safety Chad Boyd, a big playmaker for the Bulldogs entering his senior year. Boyd was fourth on the team in tackles last year with 76, picked three passes and the national media has already taken note of him as he was named to the Jim Thorpe Award preseason watch list. Behind Boyd is Quinn Giles, also a senior, who registered four interceptions and 34 tackles last season. The only defensive back from last year’s team that had more tackles than Boyd was Jamel Johnson, Tech’s free safety who also returns. Jamel Johnson quietly racked up 88 tackles and two

interceptions last year while starting in all 13 games. Kendall Hayes backs up Johnson a year after seeing some time in the secondary and gaining lots of game experience on special teams. At Nickle, Craig Johnson looks to continue making the steady gains he made last season when he was thrust into game action during week two after Ryan Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury. Johnson learned on the job as he tallied 27 tackles, two tackles for a loss and an interception. Johnson will share playing time with the hard-hitting Javontay Crowe who registered 36 tackles and an interception last season. Dave Clark at right corner is the most experienced of a very young group of cornerbacks on this year’s roster and the only one to have started a collegiate game. Clark recorded 33 tackles and three interceptions last season, coming on strong midway through the year. He has the chance to lead a young but very talented group this fall. At left corner, Bryson Abraham and Levander Liggins will vie for playing time. Abraham spent most of the spring going against Patton, learning very quickly to adjust to incredibly talented receivers. Liggins has game experience, but mainly only on special teams as a return man. They will be challenged by a group of freshmen coming in that are as athletic as any secondary signing class in the region.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Since special teams coordinator Mark Tommerdahl joined the program in 2009, Louisiana Tech has consistently fielded one of the best special teams units in the country. That unit received national attention in 2011 and has a chance to repeat its success in 2012. Tech punter Ryan Allen put up incredible numbers kicking the ball last season as he averaged over 46 yards per punt while leading the nation with 39 punts inside the 20 and 22 punts inside the 10. Not unnoticed by the rest of the country, Ryan Allen won the Ray Guy Award (nation’s top punter) and became the first punter from a non-BCS school to do so. He was also the only player from a non-BCS school to win a national award in 2011. Allen’s leg continually flipped the

44

field for the Bulldogs in 2011 and during the Poinsettia Bowl ESPN announcer Joe Tessitore emphatically stated, “Good things happen when Ryan Allen is on the field.” Matt Nelson returns for his senior year as a seasoned veteran kicker that went 15-for-21 in field goals last season and converting 46 of 48 extra points. A second team All-WAC selection last fall, Nelson averaged 60.7 yards per kickoff. The return game is dynamic and dangerous with every member of last year’s punt and kickoff return teams back for another season. Andrew Guillot averaged 12.0 yards per punt return while Craig Johnson returned a punt for a touchdown against New Mexico State. Levander Liggins proved to be a capable and speedy kickoff return man after Lyle Fitte suffered a season-ending knee injury while Chandler Spence and Richie Casey also return. Expect to see D.J. Banks back on kicks as well, providing several weapons for Tommerdahl’s return units.

SCHEDULE

With the loss of Fresno State, Hawai’i and Nevada and the addition of Texas State and UTSA, the league’s schedule does not look as formidable on paper but Utah State and San Jose State round out the league slate and by that point in the season could be playing for bowl eligibility, a conference championship or both. The (Utah State) Aggies and the Spartans have the potential to make a run this season. However, like last season, Louisiana Tech’s early non-conference schedule should prepare the Bulldogs for the rigors of a conference slate. Tech hosts new Southeastern Conference member Texas A&M on Thursday, Aug. 30 at Shreveport’s Independence Stadium. New (Texas A&M) Aggie coach

Kevin Sumlin knows all about Tech after coaching Houston to a 35-34 win over the Bulldogs last season in Ruston and will utilize all of his SEC and Big 12-level talent to get a win. Tech then has to face a Case Keenum-less Houston squad on the road on Sept. 8 in trying to avenge that 35-34 loss where the Bulldogs led 34-7 late in the third quarter. Keenum and Sumlin are gone but the Cougars return a wealth of talent in 2012. The Bulldogs come back home on Sept. 15 to host Rice in a preview of what will be a Conference USA game beginning in 2013. Following that, Tech hits the road for two more BCS games: at Illinois on Sept. 22 and at Virginia on Sept. 29. The final non-conference game will be on Oct. 6 in Ruston as the Bulldogs host UNLV.

SONNY DYKES Head Coach

interceptions and pick-sixes along with a fundamentally sound offense and the 2011 Ray Guy Award-winning punter helped LA Tech notch its first seven-game win streak since 1974. In his first season, Dykes put his high octane offense into effect, resulting in him being one of only four of the nation’s 22 new head coaches to improve a team’s conference record from the year before. Dykes’ exciting brand of offense improved in several areas of the NCAA statistical ranks including passing offense (91st in 2009 to 62nd in 2010) and total offense (66th to 52nd) while the team’s average offensive national rank improved from 65th in 2009 to 54th in 2010. Dykes, son of Texas Tech coaching legend Spike Dykes, has coached in the PAC-10, Southeastern Conference and Big 12 during his 16 years in the college football profession while also serving under some very successful head coaches including Mike Leach and Mike Stoops. He won the 2006 Mike Campbell Top Assistant Award, presented by the AllAmerican Football Foundation, and was a nominee for the 2009 Broyles Award, which goes to the nation’s top assistant coach. Dykes came to Louisiana Tech after completing his third season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Arizona, leading the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and an appearance in the Holiday Bowl. That Holiday Bowl appearance marked Dykes’ 10th bowl appearance as a coach with all 10 appearances coming within an 11 year span. A spread-offense specialist, Dykes’ offensive attack set at least five single-season records at Arizona while also racking up a pile of single-game marks in the UA record book. Former Wildcat quarterback Willie Tuitama, a disciple of Dykes, notched career numbers that are among Arizona’s best. “Coach Dykes has demonstrated throughout his coaching career all the leadership qualifications we are looking for in the next leader for our football program,” said acting athletics director Bruce Van De Velde. “His coaching success has been achieved at the highest level of competition, from the SEC to the Big 12 to the Pac-10.” Rivals.com cited Dykes as one of the countries brightest offensive minds and top ten college recruiters in the country. “I have worked my entire life to get to this point, and I have had lots of great mentors that have worked with me and taught me and

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Sonny Dykes was introduced as the 32nd head coach in Louisiana Tech history on Jan. 20, 2010 in front of an overflowing Jarrell Room filled with Bulldog fans at the Charles Wyly Athletic Center. In just his second season, his parade was rained on from start to finish. In a downpour at Joe Aillet Stadium on Nov. 26, the Dykes-led Bulldogs blanked New Mexico State, 44-0, to cap off a seven-game winning streak and to clinch the program’s first Western Athletic Conference championship in a decade. For that, Dykes was named the 2011 WAC Coach of the Year. The streak and title should not have come as a surprise to Bulldog fans as Tech showed they belong with the big boys early in the year, despite a 1-4 start. In the end, an opportunistic defense that was third in the nation in

brought me along,” said Dykes. “I am very fortunate to be here.” Dykes’ Arizona team went 6-3 in the Pac10 Conference during the 2009 campaign, finished tied for second in the league with Oregon State and Stanford. Fond of the passing attack, Dykes Arizona offense in 2008 ranked 16th in scoring and 33rd in total offense while developing 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 thenjunior Tuitama to honorable mention AllPac-10 honors that year. That same season, he helped develop the offensive scheme that pushed receiver Mike Thomas to first-team all-league status as a junior and senior (‘08). Prior to his tenure at Arizona, Dykes was co-offensive coordinator working with thenhead coach Mike Leach and inside receivers coach Dana Holgorsen running Texas Tech’s wide-open passing attack in 2005-06 after having been Texas Tech’s wide receivers coach since 2000. The Red Raiders were among the top six nationally in total offense and passing during the span. Texas Tech was No. 3 in passing and No. 6 in total offense in 2006 under his co-direction, throwing for 370 yards and accumulating nearly 450 overall. He directed an offense that scored 32 points per game in 2006 with two receivers ranked top three in the nation and a third in the top 20 in receptions per game. While in Lubbock, Dykes helped develop Joel Filani into a two-time first team All-Big 12 honoree and a sixth-round NFL draft selection by the Tennessee Titans in 2007. Receiver Jarrett Hicks also signed a free-agent deal with the San Diego Chargers that year. Dykes also worked with quarterback Graham Harrell who completed 412 passes for 4,555 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2006, ranking Texas Tech third nationally in total offense that season. Prior to his five seasons at Texas Tech, Dykes spent two non-consecutive seasons at Kentucky, first coaching tight ends as a graduate assistant in 1997 and then coaching special teams and wide receivers in 1999 under the “Air Raid” attack of former UK coach Hal Mumme. Dykes coached Kentucky’s James Whalen to AP All-America honors after his Division I-A record for receptions by a tight end. Sandwiched in between his two stints in Lexington, Dykes was the wide receivers coach at Northeast Louisiana where he helped receiver Marty Booker set school season and career records and earn Blue-Gray and Shrine Game spots before getting drafted in the third round by the Chicago Bears in 1999. A 1993 graduate of Texas Tech, Dykes lettered for three years as a baseball player for the Red Raiders. At age 40, Dykes is one of the nation’s youngest coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Dykes is married to the former Kate Golding and they have two daughters, Alta Carolina (Ally) who is four and Charlotte Reese (Charlie) who turns 18 months old on Oct 18.

WHAT THEY ARE

MIKE STOOPS

ABOUT SONNY SAYING

Assoc. Head Coach/Def. Coordinator, University of Oklahoma “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.”

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

DYKES

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.”

JOE

TESSITORE

ESPN game broadcaster & College Football Live host “The program has a certain confidence and energy. I could sense it just by being around Coach Dykes for last year’s bowl game against TCU. Teams don’t stay the same, they either get better or worse, to me there is no doubt which direction Sonny’s team is headed. He’s found a way to get the best result he can no matter the circumstances. Knowing some of the injuries and obstacles they had to overcome last year I would expect Louisiana Tech to be even more competitive this year. They have more experience, proven results and a belief in Sonny’s system.”

GARY PATTERSON

Head Coach, Texas Christian University “Louisiana Tech doesn’t receive the credit they deserve for how good a football team they are.”

KEVIN CURTIS 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Cornerbacks

52

Kevin Curtis enters his third season as the cornerbacks coach at Louisiana Tech. His cornerbacks had anything but a “sophomore slump” in their second year under his direction as Tech’s defense ranked third in the nation in both interceptions and pick-sixes. The highlight of those interceptions – and the kick-start to winning at Utah State – was Terry Carter’s 22-yard interception return for a touchdown. In his first season, the Bulldogs tallied 12 interceptions as Ryan Williams led the Tech cornerbacks with two. Curtis joined the LA Tech staff in 2010 after serving two years at Navarro Junior College where he coached the secondary. While at Navarro, Curtis’ teams went 21-2, won two conference championships and were the 2009 C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl champions. Curtis’ teams were ranked first in the country in interceptions and had five all-conference honorees while he recruited the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and West Texas areas. Curtis was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big 12 safety at Texas Tech, playing for the Red Raiders when Dykes was on the Texas Tech staff. After a successful collegiate career, Curtis was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent three seasons. After one year with the Houston Texans, Curtis played two years as the team captain for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe before returning to the United States to coach. “I am very pleased to bring Kevin Curtis on our staff,” Dykes said. “I had an opportunity to work with and get to know him at Texas Tech where he was a great player. Kevin is an outstanding person whom I had the chance to see coach when I recruited the Navarro area and I knew it wouldn’t be long before he was a highly sought-after coach on the Division I level. He is a great recruiter and will be a very strong, positive role model for our players.”

STAN EGGEN Defensive Line

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Long-time college coach Stan Eggen begins his fifth season as part of the Louisiana Tech staff and his second as coach of the defensive line. In addition to 28 years of college coaching experience, Eggen has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the country, a reputation that has earned him the recruiting coordinator title beginning in the spring of 2010. During the 2011 WAC championship season it was Eggen’s suffocating defensive line that led the charge, registering 29 of the team’s 32 sacks and held 12 of Tech’s 13 opponents to fewer rushing yards against the Bulldogs than they averaged for the season. Eggen’s first year guiding the defensive line witnessed Matt Broha record a tackle for a loss in 11 of the team’s 12 games in 2010 and vaulted the junior to third in the school’s all-time sacks record with a year still to play. During Eggen’s second season with LA Tech and as coach of the linebackers, he oversaw a unit that ranked 40th in the nation in both pass defense and pass efficiency defense. Linebacker Adrien Cole garnered first team all-WAC honors as he led LA Tech with 93 total tackles, a mark that ranked him 50th in the nation. In his first season with the Bulldogs, Eggen helped coach a defensive unit that ranked 13th nationally against the run, al 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 IlIllinois 17-10, the first bowl victory in more than three decades. Not only did Eggen’s linebackers succeed on the field in 2008, but off the field as well as Quin 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 Fran Franchione from 2003-2007.

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 Mis Missouri State (1981) and North Dakota (1979-80). While at Utah State, three of his players that he recruited or coached earned Big West Defensive Player of the Year honors. His postseason resume speaks for itself. He has been a part of nine bowl games. Two of his defensive linemen from the 2007 A&M squad - Red Bryant and Chris Harrington - were selected in the 2008 NFL Draft. Over his last three coaching stops, Eggen has coached more than a dozen defensive lineman who were selected in the NFL Draft and more than a total of 20 who signed NFL contracts. He has men mentored the likes of the Tennessee Titans’ An Antwan Odom, Green Bay Packers’ Johnny Jolly and Buffalo Bills’ Aaron Schobel.

TONY FRANKLIN 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks

54

Tony Franklin joined the Louisiana Tech staff as the offensive coordinator in February 2010, bringing an exciting offensive attack back to Joe Aillet Stadium. During Franklin’s second year in Ruston he orchestrated an offense that was fundamentally sound and continually improved weekly. Tech ranked third in the nation with five different scoring drives of over 90 yards during the 2011 season. That precision guided Tech’s offensive explosion at Fresno State when the Bulldogs scored 34 points and notched over 400 offensive yards in the first half alone. In his first year on staff, Tech’s offense exploded into a high octane mechanism in the middle of the season resulting in Tech scoring at least 20 points in six of the last seven games with the team scoring more than 30 points in four of those contests. Franklin joined the LA Tech family after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee. At MTSU, Franklin’s offense generated 421.7 yards and 32.0 points per game, the fourth and seventh highest totals in school history. The Blue Raider offense, which produced three all-Sun Belt Conference players, had 30 or more points nine times and topped the 400-yard mark on eight occasions. Franklin’s 2009 unit set school records in total yards, passing yards, and total points, while finishing 23rd nationally in scoring and 27th in total offense. The end result was a 10-3 season that witnessed a 32-31 win over Maryland early in the season and a year capped off by a 42-32 win over Southern Miss in the New Orleans Bowl, the school’s first bowl in the FBS era. The 10-win season was the most by any Blue Raider team since 1992. Quarterback Dwight Dasher came of age in Franklin’s offensive schemes. Dasher, a second team all-conference performer and MVP of the New Orleans Bowl, ranked 7th in the nation in total offense, threw for a school record 23 TD passes, and was named the SBC Player of the Week three times. Franklin made his way to Middle Tennessee after a brief stint as the offensive coordinator at Auburn in 2008 and the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Troy. In his two seasons at Troy, the Trojans went 16-9 overall and 12-2 in the Sun Belt Conference while collecting two conference championships. During that span his offense scored 30 or more points 11 times, including games against Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma State. In his first season at Troy, in addition to helping the Trojans to their first Sun Belt Conference title and a victory in the New Orleans Bowl, Franklin also helped engineer the second-ranked offensive unit in the Sun Belt just one year after the team ranked last in the league in total offense. The Trojans ranked first in the league in passing offense, again one year after ranking last, despite having faced three of the top 20 ranked passing defense teams in the country during the season, and improved in conference scoring from 12 points to 25 points per game. Franklin joined the University of Kentucky football staff in 1997 following 16 years as a high school football coach. During his four-year tenure at UK, the Wildcats enjoyed unprecedented success on the offensive side of the ball, including setting several NCAA, SEC, and school records. After coaching running backs for three seasons, Franklin was named offensive coordinator for the 2000 season and led the Wildcats to success as the nation’s second-best passing offense as well as the nation’s 11th-best team in total offense. Franklin’s two-back combinations at Kentucky outgained any two-back combinations in the SEC in total yards from scrimmage for three straight seasons. Quarterbacks Tim Couch, Dusty Bonner, and Jared Lorenzen each led the SEC in passing during their time as UKs quarterbacks, and Couch was the first player selected in the 1999 NFL draft. Several other UK players reached their goals in making NFL teams after their experience in the high-powered offense. Franklin was also named one of the top 10 recruiters in the South during his four years at Kentucky as he helped lead the Wildcats to their first back-to-back bowl appearances in 15 years and their first New Year’s Bowl game appearance in 50 seasons. USA Today took notice of Franklin’s football coaching and teaching abilities in a feature story in 2005 which detailed his consulting successes as a nationally sought-after offensive football coach. Franklin also received rave reviews for his second book, Victor’s Victory, which chronicled the tragic death and 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 FAMILY Franklin achieved both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Tony and Laura 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 Assistant A.D./Strength and Conditioning

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

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

PIERRE INGRAM 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Running Backs

Pierre Ingram joined the Louisiana Tech staff in March of 2010 as Tech’s running backs coach. His second year guiding the running backs witnessed an unlikely story unfold as walk-on Hunter Lee, who did not receive a single FBS scholarship offer, stepped up amid injuries and ran for 650 yards on 135 attempts as a true freshman. The ground game churned out over 1,900 yards in 2011 in an offense that averaged almost 400 yards per game as the team won seven straight games on the way to a WAC championship. In his first season directing Tech’s tailbacks, Ingram guided Lennon Creer’s 1,181 yard campaign during the 2010 season that included a 252-yard performance against San Jose State – the seventh most in a single game in Tech history. Creer also posted a 149-yard rushing day at No. 2 Boise State, more yards than 12 of Boise’s 13 opponents recorded against the Broncos as a team during 2010. Ingram joined the Bulldogs after winning a national championship at Villanova, where he coached the tight ends as an offensive assistant. In addition to working with the tight ends, Ingram was responsible for recruiting in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. “Pierre [Ingram] comes from a winning program and he will bring tremendous energy to our program,” said Dykes. “He loves the game and I’m looking forward to him bringing his energy and passion to the program. He will also be a great recruiting asset for us.” Prior to joining the Villanova staff in May 2009, Ingram served as the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Texas A&M-Commerce from January 2009 to June 2009. Before his short stint at Texas A&M Commerce, he was the assistant wide receivers coach at Cortland State. During his stay at Cortland State, Ingram helped the team reach the NCAA quarterfinal round for the first time in school history and he coached the second wide receiver in school history to a 1,000 yard receiving season. Ingram is a 2006 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University where he was a four-year letterman in football as a wide receiver. In 2006, he garnered the team’s Most Dependable Receiver Award. After earning a Bachelor of Liberal Arts from Middle Tennessee, he went on to obtain a Masters of Science in Sport Management from Cortland State. He is married to the former Dani Maye. The couple have a 10-month old daughter, Berkley, who was born the night of Louisiana Tech’s 38-28 win over San Jose State on Oct. 29, 2011.

PETE PEROT 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Offensive Line

As Pete Perot continues in his third decade on the Louisiana Tech staff, Bulldog fans will be thrilled to see the former NFL player on the sideline once again this fall as the Tech veteran enters his 23rd year in Ruston. He guided a veteran offensive line in 2011 that ended the year with a combined 109 starts, 91 of which return for the 2012 campaign. Starters Stephen Warner and Kris Cavitt were named first team All-WAC with Warner, a former walk-on from Ruston High School, returning as the starting center this fall with 28 consecutive starts under his belt. Perot’s experience came through in during the 2009-10 seasons as the offensive line paved the way for a Tech tailback to record 1,000 rushing yard seasons in consecutive years for the first time since Ryan Moats grabbed the nation’s attention in 2003-04. Lennon Creer’s 1,181 yards in 2010 followed Daniel Porter’s 2009 mark of 1,164 rushing yards as Creer slashed through opposing defenses over the last two-thirds of the season. His return to the Louisiana Tech sidelines resulted in an offensive line that paved the way for an offense that finished the 2009 season ranked 29th in the nation in rushing and 46th in the country in scoring. Perot’s offensive line also paved the way for Daniel Porter to become the school’s all-time rushing leader with 3,352 career rushing yards as he became only the second player in Tech history to record back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. The long-time fan favorite was able to enjoy the Bulldogs postseason success as he returned to the Tech sideline to coach in the 17-10 Independence Bowl victory over Northern Illinois in late December. Perot came to Louisiana Tech in 1986 as a volunteer assistant following an eight-year NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1979-84) and New Orleans Saints (1985-86) which was highlighted by his start for the Eagles in Super Bowl XV. In 1988, he was promoted to offensive line coach at Tech where he stayed until he departed for the same position at Southern Miss in 1997. After three years on the Golden Eagles staff, Perot returned to Tech in 2000 where he has been a mainstay on the Bulldog staff. Perot has earned a reputation as one of the top offensive line coaches in the South, tutoring such greats as William Roaf (New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs), Grant Williams (New England Patriots) and Joey Chustz (Jacksonville Jaguars). Under Perot’s tutelage, Roaf earned All-America honors in 1992 and was one of three finalists for the coveted Outland Trophy before being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Saints. The Natchitoches, La., native also coached former Bulldog left guard Aaron Lips, who earned all-WAC honors for three straight seasons while also starting a Tech Division I record 47 straight games. Lips was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List as a senior. During his career at Tech, Perot’s offensive lines have paved the way for the top eight single season rushing performances in Bulldog history, including Ryan Moats’ record-breaking 1,774 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2004, and eight of the top 10 overall. While at Southern Miss, Perot helped the Golden Eagles to three straight bowl appearances where his offensive lines paved the way for three straight 1,000 yard rushing performances (one by Eric Shaw in 1997, and two by Derrick Nix in 1998 and 1999). His 1999 line placed three USM players on the Conference USA All-Freshman team. As a collegiate player, Perot started all four years on the offensive line at Northwestern State before being drafted in the second round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. The father of two also serves as the liaison between the Bulldog football program and NFL scouts. Perot is married to the for 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.

TOMMY SPANGLER Defensive Coordinator/Safeties

www.LATechSports.com

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Tommy Spangler enters his sixth 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 few 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’ arrival there was no better defensive coordinator to be found. That top defensive unit in the WAC set a new standard during the 2011 season, holding 12 of 13 opponents to fewer rushing yards against the Bulldogs than what they averaged on the year and ranking third in the nation in interceptions and pick-sixes despite facing eight senior quarterbacks in its first nine games of the year. He guided a defense that had six All-WAC selections for the 2011 season and a group that scored six defensive touchdowns, the best scoring defense Tech has seen in two decades. The Bulldog defense ended the year ranked 13th in the nation in turnover margin and had a +15 turnover margin during the team’s seven-game winning streak. Spangler’s safeties accounted for five of the team’s interceptions with Chad Boyd leading the way with four picks returned for 75 yards during the 2010 season. His defensive game plan held Navy’s impressive triple option run game to under 300 yards for the second consecutive year. Prior to Spangler’s arrival on campus, Tech ranked dead last in the country in total defense (483.33 ypg) and scoring defense (41.7 ppg) and nextto-last in rushing defense (225.38 ypg) in 2006. However, under Spangler’s guidance, the Bulldog defense has made huge strides and propelled the program to the 2008 Independence Bowl title. In 2008, the Bulldogs allowed only 103.9 yards per game on the ground, the best since the program joined the FBS in 1989 and an improvement of over 120 yards per game in only two years. Tech ranked 13th nationally in rushing defense and did not allow a single 100-yard rusher the entire season. Tech also allowed only 23.7 points per game, the best by a Bulldog team since 1992. It was an improvement of 18.0 points per game in the past two years. The Bulldogs also posted a 21-0 shutout over San Jose State during the season, the first shutout by a LA Tech team since 1996 (a span of 148 games). It was also the first road shutout since 1988 (a span of 225 games). In his first two years at Tech, six Bulldog defenders earned all-WAC honors including safety Antonio Baker, a two-time first team honoree. The 48-year-old Spangler spent the past two decades as a full-time coach on the college football sideline where he served the first 10 years at Georgia Southern, helping lead the program to a pair of Division I-AA national titles. He spent 10 seasons at 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 SPANGLER FAMILY the parents of three children: Pierce, PeyPeyton, Pierce, Gracie, Tommy and Kim ton, and Gracie.

MARK TOMMERDAHL 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Special Teams Coordinator/Inside Receivers

Louisiana Tech landed one of the top assistant coaches in the South when long-time special teams coach Mark Tommerdahl joined the Bulldog staff in 2009. He enters the 2012 season having coached two All-Americans in the past three seasons. Coaching the inside receivers and serving as the special teams coordinator, Tommerdahl came to LA Tech with more than two decades of Division I coaching experience serving as an assistant coach on some of the top programs in the country. He has served as an assistant coach on 13 bowl teams as well as six league champions and two division champions. Tommerdahl’s special teams acumen was highlighted in 2011 when punter Ryan Allen won the Ray Guy Award. Allen became the first player from a non-BCS school to win the award for the nation’s top punter and was the only player from a non-BCS school to win a national award in 2011. Allen consistently flipped the field for Tech’s defense and led the nation with 39 punts inside the 20 with only five touchbacks the entire year. His experience and game-planning on special teams helped Phillip Livas tie an NCAA record in 2010 with the return specialist’s eighth career return for a touchdown. Livas ended his career with four punt returns and four kickoff returns for a score. Tommerdahl’s coaching helped Dennis Morris garner all-America honors as well as being named the Tight End of the Year by the College Football Performance Awards. Morris finished his senior year at LA Tech with 38 catches for 623 yards and he had a national-leading 12 receiving touchdowns among tight ends in 2009. Prior to spending the 2008 season at UL-Monroe, Tommerdahl served as the tight end and special teams coach at Texas A&M for five years. During his tenure with the Aggies, Tommerdahl helped lead the program to the Cotton Bowl (2004), the Holiday Bowl (2006) and the Alamo Bowl (2007). He coached present-day Dallas Cowboys tight end Marcellus Bennett, who ended his Texas A&M career as the program’s all-time positional leader in receptions and yards. Tommerdahl’s special teams units in College Station were also among the nation’s best, ranking in the Top 20 in the nation in net punting 2006 (14th) and in 2007 (5th) and in kick-off returns in 2003 (10th), 2006 (2nd), and 2007 (20th). The Alabama Crimson Tide were fortunate enough to land Tommerdahl’s services during the 2001 and 2002 seasons as he served as the program’s tight ends and special teams coach. He helped the Crimson Tide to the 2001 Independence Bowl and the 2002 SEC West Division title. Tommerdahl also served as the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator during stints at TCU (19982000), New Mexico (1997) and Minnesota (1995-96) where he coached a Lou Groza finalist at all three schools. TCU’s kickoff return units were ranked No. 1 in the nation in back-to-back seasons while his special teams units ranked No. 1 in the league in three of four statistical categories. In 1997 at New Mexico, four of the Lobos special teams units were ranked in the top 20 in the country as the team won the WAC Mountain Division title. The Fergus Falls, Minnesota native began his collegiate coaching career in 1984 as a graduate assistant at Wyoming where he spent the next 11 seasons serving in numerous capacities including the tight ends coach, offensive coordinator and backfield coach. He helped lead the Cowboys to four bowl appearances and three WAC titles. Tommerdahl earned his bachelor’s degree in business and physical education from Concordia College in 1983 and his master’s degree in business administration from Wyoming in 1986. He is married to the former Annette Jondahl.

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

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

winning percentage of about 70 percent. In that inaugural game against East Carolina at Joe Aillet Stadium, a young quarterback named Terry Bradshaw guided the Bulldogs to the victory as Tech fullback Buster Herren scored the first touchdown ever at the stadium on a two-yard run with 6:20 remaining in the second quarter. It was just the first of many memorable moments for Tech fans in Ruston. On two different occasions over the past 40-plus years, Tech has registered streaks of 18 straight wins at Joe Aillet Stadium. The first such streak started with a 23-0 win over UL-Monroe in the final game of the 1971 season and ended with a 49-20 win over Tennessee-Chattanooga in the fifth game of the 1975 season. That run by coach Maxie Lambright’s teams included two small college and one Division II national Coaching Records at Joe Aillet Stadium championship seasons.

Tech trailed 30-14 late in the third quarter before scoring 17 unanswered points, capped by Gene Johnson’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Slaughter with 2:14 to play. The Bulldog defense held the Rams to four and out on their final possession as a wild celebration ensued, which ultimately ended in the goal posts in the south end zone being torn down by Tech fans. One of the biggest individual matchups in the stadium’s history came on Sept. 5, 1998, when two future NFL quarterbacks squared off as Central Florida’s Daunte Culpepper led his team to a 64-30 win over Tech’s Tim Rattay and the Bulldogs. Culpepper passed for 370 yards and four scores while rushing for 69 yards and two more touchdowns while Rattay passed for 524 yards and three touchdowns. The 2000 season saw a milestone reached at Joe Aillet Stadium as the Bulldogs under head coach Jack Bicknell recorded the 100th win in the facility’s history. True freshman quar-

terback Luke McCown tied an NCAA Division I freshman record by tossing six touchdowns in the milestone 48-14 victory over ULLafayette 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 current Green Bay Packers star Tramon Williams intercepted Paul Pinegar with less than :30 remaining, starting a wild celebration that saw the goal posts in both end zones torn down. The 2011 season saw disappointing lows early on but a wet championship finish. After leading Houston 34-7 with 20 minutes to play, Tech dropped a heart-breaking 35-34 decision to the Cougars but ended the year with seven straight wins, including two at home, as the Bulldogs clinched the 2011 WAC Championship with a 44-0 route of New Mexico State in a driving rainstorm in late November. 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 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 3130 win over the bowl-bound Rams to earn their own Independence Bowl berth. The winning touchdown pass from Gene Johnson to Bobby Slaughter in the final minutes came fittingly in the south end zone, just in front of the Spirit of ‘88. Eleven years later, Tech clinched a share of its first Western Athletic Conference title with a 48-42 win over Boise State at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the Broncos driving towards what looked like a game-winning score late in the contest, the Spirit of ‘88 magic struck once again. Ryan Dinwiddie’s potential game-winning touchdown pass bounced off the helmet of a Tech defender and high into the air before Bulldog defensive lineman Brandon Avance plucked it out of the air, giving Tech the victory. Some might say it’s a coincidence that the two biggest wins in the program’s Division I-A history had been decided in the south end zone under the watchful eyes of the Spirit of ‘88. However, the third time proved it was

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

SERIES RECORD AGAINST TEAMS AT INDEPENDENCE STADIUM (45-22-3)

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

Independence Stadium and Louisiana Tech have a long, successful history together as the Bulldogs have played 70 games in Shreveport, including four trips to the Independence Bowl. All-time the Bulldogs are 45-22-3 (.664) in games played in Independence Stadium. Northwestern State is the most common opponent for Tech in Shreveport as the two programs met 48 times with the Bulldogs claiming a 34-12-2 mark in those games and a 33-12-2 mark in Independence Stadium. Although the majority of the games that Tech has played in Shreveport came during the old State Fair Games against Northwestern State, starting in the late ’30s and ending in the late ’80s, Tech has played some other big-time college football games at the site. In the last two decades, Louisiana Tech has faced Northern Illinois (2008), Houston (1988), Maryland (1990), Baylor (1996), California (1997), Texas A&M (1999), Oklahoma State (2002) and Miami (2003) at Independence Stadium. Thrilling last-minute victories against California (41-34) and Oklahoma State (39-36) highlight the Bulldogs’ successful history in Shreveport. In all, Tech has played 19 different teams at Independence Stadium, and the Bulldogs have appeared in four Independence Bowls, beating Louisville 24-14 in 1977, losing 35-13 to East Carolina in 1978, tying Maryland 34-34 in 1990 and defeating Northern Illinois 17-10 in 2008. Louisiana Tech opened the 2003 season at Independence Stadium as the Bulldogs played host to five-time national champion Miami on Aug. 28, 2003, in a nationally televised game on ESPN, which saw a Louisiana Tech regular season home attendance record of 43,279. Independence Stadium originally opened as State Fair Stadium in 1925. It has gone through numerous renovations and expansions over the years with the most recent being the installation of FieldTurf in late 2010.

After completing its 50th year of intercollegiate competition, the Western Athletic Conference continues to evolve and feature some of the nation’s best programs. One thing that remains unchanged is the persistent nature of the schools in the WAC to advance their programs to contend at the top levels of the NCAA. The WAC provides its student-athletes the chance to travel to scenic destinations and gain exposure in some of the nation’s most diverse markets. In addition, the WAC’s student-athletes work to achieve the highest levels of success with the academic support of their respective institutions. The WAC has experienced tremendous success over the years. Since 2000, a total of 43 football teams have been invited to bowl games, including more than half of its teams in 2008 with a record-tying five. The conference has sent teams to BCS bowl games three times since 2006. In men’s basketball, the WAC has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Tournament in 24 of the past 29 seasons. In baseball, the WAC has boasted two national champions since 2003. In women’s basketball, Louisiana Tech basketball has played in all but three NCAA postseason tournaments during its history. In 2001, the WAC partnered with ESPN for coverage of football and basketball giving the conference national exposure from one of the most respected broadcast entities in the country. The WAC also officially added WAC.tv in 2006 to give fans streaming internet access to many of its postseason championships including volleyball, soccer, swimming and diving, basketball, 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. In 2005, Idaho, New Mexico State and Utah State joined the WAC after Rice, SMU, UTEP and Tulsa withdrew. Boise State withdrew prior to the 2011-12 season. The current membership began on July 1, 2012 when the WAC added Denver, Seattle, UT-Arlington, UTSA and Texas State to replace withdrawing members, Fresno State, Hawai‘i and Nevada. Boise State returns in 2013-14 in all sports except football. The WAC has had just six commissioners in its history. Paul Brechler was named the first leader of the conference and held the position from 1962-1968. He was followed by Wiles Hallock (1968-71), Stan Bates (1971-80), Dr. Joe Kearney (1980-94), Karl Benson (1994-2012) and current interim commissioner Jeff Hurd (2012-present). Presently, the WAC crowns team and individual champions in 19 sports – eight men’s and 11 women’s. For the men, there are championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, indoor track and field and outdoor track


and field. Championships for women are held in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and volleyball. The WAC office has been located in the Denver area since the conference’s inception with the exception of a two-year stay in Phoenix from 196466.

JEFF HURD, WAC INTERIM COMMISSIONER Jeff Hurd was named interim commissioner of the WAC on March 9, 2012. He has been associated with the conference for more than half of its existence as he joined the WAC staff in 1985 as the Director of Conference Relations. Prior to taking the reins of the 50-year-old conference, Hurd also served as associate commissioner, then as senior associate commissioner where he oversaw communications, television operations and the basketball tournament. He was also responsible for team sport scheduling and was the administrator for football, men’s basketball and baseball. Hurd is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and began his professional career as the Sports Editor of the Hannibal (Missouri) Courier-Post. He also worked for the Tulsa Tribune, was the Sports Information Director at the University of Tulsa and the Director of Public Relations for the Missouri Valley Conference prior to joining the WAC. A native of Minot, North Dakota, Hurd and his wife, Cheri, reside in Centennial, Colo., and are the parents of four children: Shannon, Michael, Kristen and Kevin.

Southern Miss 19, LA Tech 17 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

September 3, 2011 M.M. Roberts Stadium, Hattiesburg, Miss.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Danny Hrapmann’s 49-yard field goal with 2:32 to play lifted Southern Miss to a 19-17 win over Louisiana Tech before 22,356 rain-soaked fans at Roberts Stadium Saturday night. After the Bulldogs (0-1) took a 17-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter on a one-yard plunge by Lennon Creer, Southern Miss took its next two possessions inside LA Tech territory where it converted on a pair of field goals - one by Corey Acosta and the game-winner by Hrappman. Tech had two final chances but turned it over on downs around midfield with just over two minutes to play and then ran out of time with the ball inside USM territory to end the game. USM led 10-3 after a Hrappman 38-yard field goal attempt with only :14 to play in the third quarter when the Bulldogs special teams struck on one of three big plays they made during the night. Lyle Fitte took the ensuing kickoff following Hrappman’s field goal and returned it 86 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 10-10. It was the 10th longest kickoff return in Bulldog history and the sixth straight year that a LA Tech player has returned a kickoff or a punt for a score. “The return was a heck of a play,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “He got some good blocks and Lyle is a good return guy. He will do that against some folks this year. We had to have some plays on special teams because we weren’t making many on offense.” USM retook the lead early in the fourth on a Hrappman field goal when the Tech special teams unit struck again. This time the Bulldog punt coverage unit made the play as Justin Goodman recovered a muffled punt on the USM three-yard line, setting up Creer’s one-yard run two plays later as LA Tech took a 17-13 advantage with 9:43 to play. Corey Acosta then capped a six play drive for USM with a 42-yard field goal cutting the advantage to 17-16 with 7:44 remaining in the contest. The Bulldogs offense was unable to move the football on its next possession as Tech was forced to punt, setting up the game-winning drive by USM. Tech freshman quarterback Nick Isham completed 20-of-36 passes for 176 yards but was hurt by six dropped passes by Bulldog receivers. Quinton Patton led Tech receivers with five catches for 95 yards while Creer led the Tech ground game with 53 yards on 17 carries. “I thought Nick was composed,” said Dykes. “That was what was most impressive to me. He played against a good football team in the rain on the road. He never got rattled. He made a couple of mistakes early. I was pretty impressed with the way he played though.” Defensively, Jamel Johnson recorded a career-high 12 tackles while Jay Dudley added 10 and Adrien Cole nine. Matt Broha recorded six tackles and one sack while Dave Clark had two tackles, one pass breakup and his first career interception. USM outgained Tech 379 to 244 in total yardage. Southern Miss took the opening kickoff 72 yards on seven plays and took a 7-0 lead on a 12-yard run by Kelvin Bolden with 11:38 to play in the first quarter. The scoring drive was highlighted by a 25-yard pass to William Spight on a third down and four play, setting up the touchdown. Following the scoring drive, both defenses stiffened as neither offense was able to move the football with any consistency. Tech’s best scoring opportunity of the first half came when linebacker Adrien Cole blocked a 45-yard field goal attempt midway through the first quarter and defensive back Dave Clark returned it to the Eagles 23-yard line. However, USM held as Isham failed to convert on a fourth down and one quarterback keeper as the Eagles took over possession.

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

RUSTON, La. - Freshman Nick Isham directed a 72-yard scoring drive in the final two minutes of regulation and running back Lennon Creer made 2011 BU LLDOG FOOTBA LL up for a crucial fourth-quarter fumble as Louisiana Tech downed Central Arkansas 48-42 in overtime before 20,652 Rust BROHA fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday night. Carter Creer’s fumble with 2:08 to play in the fourth quarter was returned 73 Hymel yards by UCA’s Jerre McKnight as the Bears (1-1) took a 42-35 lead and were Preview on the brink of the upset. However, Isham - playing in only his second collegiate game - calmly led the Bulldogs down the field on a seven play, 72-yard drive that was capped off by Ray Holley’s seven-yard scoring run with only 58 seconds to play. www.Quest4Excellence.com | www.LATechSports.com The key play on the drive was a 49-yard pass hookup from Isham to Quinton Patton that put the Bulldogs inside the redzone. Patton ended the night with 211 yards receiving, tying him for 10th place all-time in a single game with former Bulldog Tommy Spinks who accomplished the feat in 1968 against Louisiana-Lafayette (formerly USL). Two plays later, Holley scored his second rushing TD of the game and Matt Nelson’s extra point tied it up. Tech’s defense forced a three-and-out on UCA’s final possession as the final seconds ticked off the clock on a punt by Kevin Buford. The Bulldogs won the toss and elected to go on defense to begin the overtime. Despite surrendering 372 yards through the air to UCA quarterback Nathan Dick, Tech’s defensive unit stood tall in the extra period holding the Bears to three total yards on three plays and forcing a 39-yard field goal attempt by Eddie Camara, who had hit two earlier in the game. However, linebacker Adrien Cole broke through the line to block the attempt, giving the Bulldogs offensive unit an opportunity to win the game. Creer, who rushed for 177 yards and three touchdowns on a career-high 32 carries, took a handoff on the first play, cut right off tackle and galloped down to the two-yard line. Two plays later, he found the endzone, sending the Tech sideline and the Bulldog faithful remaining in the stands into a celebration. Isham finished the game 22-of-37 for 318 yards and two scores with one costly interception late in the first half. Patton, playing in only his second game for Tech, burned the UCA secondary twice in the opening quarter, the first time on a 42-yard strike from Isham, giving the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead with 10:10 to play. After UCA cut the lead to 7-3 on a Camara 39-yard field goal, Isham to Patton struck again - this time on a 72-yard bomb. It marked the longest pass play for Tech since Zac Champion hit Phillip Livas on a 70-yard pass in 2007. Creer scored his first touchdown of the night in the second quarter on a five-yard run, giving Tech a 21-10 lead. Tech had one final opportunity in the second quarter to add to its lead but Isham threw an interception which was returned inside Tech territory, setting up a 3-yard scoring toss from Dick to Dominique Croom as Tech lead 21-17 at the half. Holley (4-yard run) and Creer (12-yard run) scored in the third quarter to give Tech a 35-20 lead before UCA scored 22 unanswered points - the final seven coming on the 73yard fumble return by McKnight. Chad Boyd led Tech with 10 tackles, including 1.5 TFL, while Cole added nine tackles, one sack and 1.5 TFL.

Houston 35, LA Tech 34 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

September 17, 2011 Joe Aillet Stadium, Ruston, La.

126

RUSTON, La. - Patrick Edwards’ 32-yard touchdown reception with 1:36 to play capped a furious second half rally as Houston defeated Louisi2011 BU LLDOG FOOTBA LL ana Tech 35-34 before 24,642 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday night. Edwards leaping catch in the Evans CREER back of the north endzone capped an 84-yard, six play drive as Houston (3-0) Hall of Fame scored the final 28 points of the game. Tech took a 34-7 lead on Ray HolPreview ley’s seven-yard run with just over five minutes to play in the third quarter, beGoodman fore the Cougars scored four straight touchdowns. Tech (1-2) had one final chance to retake the lead but Lennon Creer was stopped just short on a fourth down play at the Bulldogs 37-yard line with just under a minute to play as Houswww.Quest4Excellence.com | www.LATechSports.com ton ran the final seconds off the game clock while a sea of blue streamed out of the Joe Aillet Stadium gates in shock. “Well, tough football game,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “When you have coached as long as I have coached, you end up in a lot of tight, tough football games and that was one of the more disappointing ones I have ever been a part of. I thought we played really well for about three quarters and then just kind of fell apart in the fourth quarter. “We have to learn how to finish a game off. We’ve played two games against teams picked first and second in Conference USA in Southern Miss and Houston and lost by two and lost by one. If we want to get this program where we want it to be we have to learn how to win those games against good teams. We just weren’t able to do it today.” Behind a stellar defensive performance through the first 40 minutes of action and a ball control offense that kept the high-powered UH offense on the sideline, LA Tech took a 20-7 lead into the halftime locker room as Matt Nelson booted a 47-yard field goal at the end of the half. Nick Isham threw a 16-yard strike to Quinton Patton with 6:47 to play in the third making the score 27-7 and after a Quin Giles interception, Holley’s seven-yard run gave Tech its biggest lead of the night. However, Case Keenum - who had been held in check through the first 40 minutes of play - passed for 280 of his game-high 351 yards in the second half as he led Houston on four touchdown drives, including three in the fourth quarter. After Bryce Beall’s two-yard run early in the fourth quarter made the score 34-21, Tech marched 42-yards on nine plays and looked to be in control until Holley fumbled on the UH 22-yard line, giving the Cougars life. Keenum took Houston 80 yards on nine plays as Beall scored again - this time from four yards out - to cut the deficit to 34-28 with 7:25 to play. Keenum completed a key fourth-down and four pass to keep the drive alive. Following an Isham interception on Tech’s next possession, the Bulldog defense stood tall forcing a three out with 5:40 to play. However, the Bulldog offense could muster only one first down as Houston took over following a Ryan Allen punt with 2:46 to play setting up the game-winning drive. “We talked at halftime about playing each play, and how we can’t get it all back at one time,” said Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin. “It’s going to take every play. We’ve been in that position (before), but we have guys who know what it takes to win.” On Tech’s final possession, the Bulldogs took the field minus several key players, including Patton, Creer, Myles White and Taulib Ikharo. “We are just trying to find guys and get them lined up,” Dykes said. “It’s hard to put a drive together when you’re banged up like that but we have to learn how to do it. That’s part of it. Good football teams have players that step up and make plays and we have to be more than one tricked pony and somebody has to step up in those situations and make a play.” Isham completed 20-of-31 passes for 199 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while Patton led Tech with five receptions for 82 yards and one score before leaving the game following his touchdown reception. Creer - despite missing more than a quarter with an injury - rushed 25 times for 99 yards and one score while Holley added 62 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Keenum completed 25-of-40 passes for 351 yards and three scores and two interceptions. Jay Dudley led Tech with 11 tackles while Adrien Cole added eight and two tackles for loss.

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

STARKVILLE, Miss. - For the fourth straight weekend, Louisiana Tech found itself in a dogfight late in the game and for the third time the Bulldogs came up just short as Chris Relf’s 17-yard touchdown pass to LaDarius Perkins in overtime gave Mississippi State a 26-20 overtime win Saturday night. It was another game filled with positives for head coach Sonny Dykes and the Bulldogs, but in the end, it was another tough loss. Tech (1-3) wasn’t able to capitalize on two opportunities late in the fourth quarter with the game tied at 2020 and after freshman quarterback Nick Isham threw his second interception of the game on the Bulldogs only possession in overtime, Mississippi State (2-2) made them pay. On a second-down-and-two play from the 17-yard line, Relf lofted a pass into the left corner of the end zone to Perkins who had beaten the Tech corner as the more than 56,000 Mississippi State fans erupted in celebration. The loss marked the third time this season that LA Tech has fallen with all three setbacks coming by two points or less or in overtime. With just over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the game tied, Tech looked to be in prime position to pull the victory - what would have been its third straight against Mississippi State. After driving 60 yards on nine plays - which included a highlight real 28-yard catch by Hunter Lee off a tipped ball - Tech was faced with a third down and three play from the MSU 21-yard line. After a timeout, Isham dropped back and threw an ill-advised pass into the endzone that was intercepted by Mississippi State, ending the Louisiana Tech threat. Following a three-and-out by the LA Tech defense, Tech took over on its own 35-yard line with 2:32 to play. Two straight runs netted six yards and on third down and four, Isham found Taulib Ikharo over the middle around midfield for what would have been a Tech first down. However, Ikharo dropped the pass, forcing Tech to punt and eventually leading to OT. Mississippi State took an early 7-0 lead when Chad Bumphis picked up a 72-yard Ryan Allen punt on the 18-yard line, made several LA Tech defenders miss and raced 82 yards to the end zone for the first score of the night. Tech answered back on a Matt Nelson 43-yard field goal that capped a nine-play, 48yard drive. Early in the second quarter, LA Tech took its first lead of the game on a Lennon Creer four-yard touchdown run as Nelon’s extra point made the score 10-7. The Bulldogs from Mississippi scored the final 10 points of the half - on a Vick Ballard 11-yard run and a Derek DePasquale 36-yard field goal - as MSU took a 17-10 lead into the halftime locker room. Midway through the third quarter, Tech’s special teams unit made a big play snuffing out a faked punt as the Bulldogs took over at the MSU 34-yard line. Six plays later, Isham found Quinton Patton in the corner of the end zone for a score - on a play that was originally ruled out of bounds before instant replay overturned it in LA Tech’s favor. DePasquale and Nelson traded field goals down the stretch to tie the game at 20-20, setting the stage for overtime. Isham ended the night 29-of-40 for 233 yards and one score with two interceptions. Quinton Patton caught 11 passes for 87 yards and one score while Creer rushed 24 times for 82 yards and one score. Tech outgained Mississippi State 359-340 as both teams recorded 20 first downs in the game. The Bulldog defense stood tall all night long led by Adrien Cole (16 tackles), Jay Dudley (13 tackles) and Jamel Johnson (11 tackles).

Hawai’i 44, LA Tech 26 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

October 1, 2011 Joe Aillet Stadium, Ruston, La.

RUSTON, La. - Hawai’i quarterback Bryant Moniz passed for 410 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Warriors to a 44-26 win over Louisiana 2011 BU LLDOG FOOTBA LL Tech in the Western Athletic Conference opener for both teams before 25,212 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium SatHALL OF FAME DUDLEY urday night. “It was a disappointing perforCAVITT ITT mance,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “I’m embarrassed of how our BULLDOGS TACKLING BREAST CANCER team played. I’m not pleased with the product we put on the field. We’ve got PREVIEW to get better, be able to play better and react better, and handle situations that occur in the game better than we did tonight.” In a game that was marred by numerous stoppages of play by officials - including a 20-minute stoppage www.Quest4Excellence.com | www.LATechSports.com in the second quarter on a review of a play - , Hawai’i used a pair of nonoffensive touchdowns on back-to-back plays midway through the third quarter to pull away for the win. After Tech closed a two-touchdown halftime deficit to 20-13 on a Nick Isham sevenyard scoring toss to Taulib Ikharo with 13:37 to play in the third quarter, the Bulldogs lost the momentum - and the game - over the next six minutes. Moniz led Hawai’i on a 10-play, 65-yard drive which was capped by his six-yard touchdown pass to Billy Ray Stutzmann. The score strike illustrated the frustrations of the night for Tech as Moniz was under heavy pressure on the third down play and blindly tossed it towards the endzone while going down as Stutzmann came up with the catch amongst four Bulldog defenders. Trailing 27-13, Tech’s offensive unit took over on its own 37-yard line. After converting a third down play, Isham was intercepted by Richard Torres on an out-route as the Hawai’i defensive back raced 49-yards untouched to the endzone for a three-touchdown lead. “I saw a hole in the defense and changed the route,”Isham said. “The defender was playing man and instead of staying on his guy he jumped the out route I threw.” The situation went from bad to worse moments later as Lyle Fitte fumbled the kickoff and Tank Hopkins scooped and scored from 16-yards out as the Bulldogs found themselves trailing 41-13 with seven minutes to play in the quarter. Tech scored two final touchdowns - one on an Isham 10-yard pass to Lennon Creer and the final on an Isham four-yard run - but it wasn’t enough as the Bulldogs fell for the fourth time in five games. “It is pretty embarrassing and very disappointing,” said cornerback Terry Carter. “We have a bunch of great fans, and I am apologizing for the way we competed on the field. I promise that will never happen again.” Tech took an early 6-0 lead in the first quarter on a 2-yard pass from Isham to Quinton Patton, who finished the game with seven catches for 126 yards. However, Moniz then threw three first half touchdown passes to Royce Pollard (27, 13, 9), who victimized the Tech secondary with 10 catches for 216 yards (all career-highs) and three scores. Isham completed 29-of-51 passes for 305 yards and three touchdowns but threw two interceptions and was sacked four times in the game. Creer was also held in check, totaling only 63 yards on 16 carries in the game. HAWAI'I GAME - OCTOBER 1, 2011 - JOE AILLET STADIUM

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

MOSCOW, Idaho - Louisiana Tech needed a win. The Bulldog defense needed to make a statement. Both were accomplished Saturday afternoon as Tech defeated Idaho 24-11 in the Kibbie Dome as the Bulldogs defense forced four turnovers and allowed only a field goal as Tech (2-4, 1-1 WAC) snapped its three-game losing streak. With the victory, Tech improved to 5-2 all-time against Idaho (1-5, 0-2 WAC) and ruined the Vandals homecoming celebration. With the Tech offense struggling in the opening half, the Bulldog defense stopped the Vandals time after time while also contributing the only touchdown of the opening 30 minutes of play. After a scoreless first quarter, Matt Nelson’s 23-yard field goal on the first play of the second stanza gave Tech a 3-0 lead. Following an Idaho safety that cut the lead to 3-2, the Bulldogs defense struck with the game-changing play as linebacker Jay Dudley recorded the first of three interceptions by Tech on the day and returned it 53 yards for a score. Nelson’s extra point gave Tech a 10-2 lead with 4:47 to play in the second quarter. Idaho kicker Trey Farquhar made the score 10-5 at the half with a 43-yard boot late in the second. After both teams failed to score early in the second half, Tech finally put together a touchdown drive, covering 53 yards on seven plays with walk-on running back Hunter Lee paving the way. Nick Isham’s six-yard strike to David Gru in the back of the endzone with 6:19 to play gave Tech a 17-5 advantage. One possession later, Lee and the Bulldog offense marched 40-yards on six plays to grab a 24-5 advantage on a one-yard run by Isham with only 5 seconds to play in the third quarter. Idaho’s offense had numerous opportunities to put scoring drives together but the Bulldogs defense stood tall, holding Vandals quarterback Brian Reader to only 19-of-47 passes for 244 yards and three interceptions. Jamel Johnson and Quin Giles both recorded interceptions in the second half. The only touchdown of the game for Idaho came on special teams when Justin Veltung returned a punt 81 yards for a score with 3:35 to play in the game. With Lennon Creer standing on the sideline for most of the second half, the littleused Lee made the most of his opportunity, rushing a career-high 28 times for 134 yards. His 18-yard gallop over the left side with just over a minute to play sealed the win for Tech. While the Tech defense did its part, it was helped by the incredible punting performance by Ryan Allen, who punted 10 times for a career-best 48.0 yard average, including six punts down inside the 20-yard line. Four of Allen’s punts were downed inside the Vandals 10-yard line. With Idaho playing two-deep coverage for most of the game, Isham took what the defense gave him, completing 25-of-39 passes for 163 yards and one score. Quinton Patton caught nine passes for a total of 34 yards while Gru had four for 28 and the score. Creer ended the game with 54 yards on 10 carries but sat most of the second half while Lee posted career numbers. Adrien Cole led the Tech defense with eight tackles and one fumble recovery while Dudley added six tackles and the interception return for a touchdown one day after his birthday.

LA Tech 24, Utah State 17 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

October 22, 2011 Romney Stadium, Logan, Utah

130

LOGAN, Utah - Louisiana Tech’s defense recorded a second straight stellar performance and backup quarterback Colby Cameron came on to lead the Bulldogs to a 24-17 comefrom-behind Western Athletic Conference victory over Utah State Saturday at Romney Stadium. The win for Tech (3-4, 2-1 WAC) is the fourth straight WAC road victory for the program, the longest streak since entering the league in 2001. The victory wouldn’t come easy against a Utah State team that was averaging 39.0 points a game this season. However, the Bulldogs defense made play after play during the game and Tech won the special teams battle - which included a rare loss of down penalty on an illegal touch on a punt by the Aggies late in the game. After opening the game with an impressive 10-play, 87-yard drive that culminated with a Lennon Creer threeyard touchdown run, the Tech offense went dormant, recording only 66 more total offensive yards through the third quarter. Freshman quarterback Nick Isham struggled, completing only 10-of-22 passes for 63 yards and missing a number of open receivers while dodging a pair of interceptions that Utah State defenders dropped. However, the Tech defense kept the Bulldogs in the game. Terry Carter’s 22-yard interception return for a touchdown with 11:36 to play in the third quarter, gave Tech a 14-10 lead. It was his first interception since returning one for a score against San Jose State in 2008. Utah State answered with a nine-play, 87-yard drive that resulted in a 17-14 lead when their freshman signal caller Chuckie Keeton scrambled 29-yards to paydirt with 7:41 to play in the third quarter. After two more empty possessions by the Tech offense, head coach Sonny Dykes made the switch at quarterback, giving Cameron his first action of the year. The junior responded leading Tech on an eight-play, 58-yard drive as Hunter Lee scored his first career touchdown from eight yards out with 10:07 to play as the Bulldogs regained the advantage on the scoreboard 21-17. The key play on the drive was a third down and one call where Cameron audiblized out of a run and lofted a pass down the sideline to Quinton Patton, who drew a defensive pass interference penalty. The 15-yard penalty gave Tech the ball on the USU 17 and after three plays, the Bulldogs were faced with a fourth down and one from the eight. Lee took the handoff from Cameron and ran off the right tackle untouched for the go-ahead score. Utah State was able to only gain one first down on its next two possessions. Facing a fourth- down and one on its own 33 with less than five minutes to play, the Aggies opted to punt. USU punter Tyler Bennett dropped the snap and under duress from the Tech rush, kicked the football off the ground about 35 yards down the field. However, under NCAA rules, it was an illegal touch and a 10-yard penalty was marked off from the spot of the foul. The loss of down on the penalty gave the Bulldogs the football on the USU 11-yard line with 4:30 to play. Tech ran three straight plays before Matt Nelson kicked a 24-yard field goal to up the advantage to 24-17 with 1:44 left in the game. Utah State had one final opportunity to tie the game, but the Bulldog defense held on a fourth down scramble by Keeton, and Tech took over and ran out the clock. Offensively, Tech managed only 232 yards for the game including 86 yards on the ground and 146 through the air. Cameron completed 4-of-6 passes for 38 yards while Creer led the ground attack with 62 yards and one score. Lee added 28 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tech held the potent USU offense to only 294 yards. The Aggies entered the contest averaging more than 300 yards per game on the ground but Tech limited USU to only 166, including holding Robert Turbin to only 81 yards. Adrien Cole recorded 14 tackles in the game. Utah State’s Bobby Wagner recorded 20. For the second straight game, Tech punter Ryan Allen was phenomenal, averaging 52.2 yards per punt while downing seven of his eight punts inside the Aggies 20-yard line.

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

RUSTON, La. - Colby Cameron threw for 237 yards and Lennon Creer paced an impressive Tech ground assault with his seventh career 100-yard 2011 BU LLDOG FOOTBA LL rushing performance as Louisiana Tech defeated San Jose State 38-28 before 19,642 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium SaturCOLE day afternoon. HARPER While the offense was recording 497 total yards, the Bulldog deLACEY fense forced five turnovers, including a season-high four interceptions as Tech Preview held SJSU to a mere 12 yards rushing on 17 carries. The Bulldogs (4-4, 3-1 WAC) used a five-minute stretch that included the final possession of the first half and the first four minutes of the second half to blow open a close game as Tech defeated the Spartans (3-5, 2-2 www.Quest4Excellence.com | www.LATechSports.com WAC) for the fifth straight time. Tech led 17-14 late in the second quarter but capitalized on two interceptions to score 21 straight points as the Bulldogs led 38-14 with over 10 minutes to play in the third quarter. The barrage started when Tech safety Jamel Johnson intercepted a Matt Faulkner pass with 51 seconds to play in the second quarter and returned it deep into Spartan territory. Three plays later, Cameron hit Quinton Patton on a two-yard TD toss - the duo’s second scoring hookup of the game as Tech took a 24-14 lead into intermission. After a 40-yard kickoff return by freshman Levander Liggins to open the second half, the Bulldogs marched 60 yards on 12 plays and took a 31-14 lead on a 1-yard touchdown dive by Creer with 11:15 to play in the third quarter. Tech converted a pair of third downs and one fourth down on the scoring drive. On the first play of scrimmage for San Jose State following the kickoff, Tech linebacker Jay Dudley intercepted Faulkner and raced 36-yards untouched to the endzone as the Bulldog lead ballooned to 38-14. It was the third straight game that LA Tech has returned an interception for a score, and the second for Dudley who also accomplished the feat in the 24-11 win over Idaho on Oct. 8. San Jose State would add a Chandler Jones five-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter and a Ryan Otten 20-yard scoring reception late in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough as the Bulldogs won for the third straight time. After Matt Nelson gave Tech the early 3-0 lead on a 25-yard field goal following a Chad Boyd interception early in the first quarter, SJSU took the lead thanks to a big special teams play. The Spartans recovered a Andrew Guillot fumble on a punt return giving them first and goal at the Tech 1-yard line. Brandon Rutley, who was held to only 23 yards rushing on 14 carries, scored on the first play as SJSU took a 7-3 lead. Tech answered early in the second quarter as Cameron directed a 10-play, 94-yard drive that was capped by a 21-yard touchdown run by Richie Casey on a reverse as the Bulldogs regained the lead 10-7. The drive was highlighted by a 31-yard run by Hunter Lee, who finished the game with 83 yards on 12 carries in the game. San Jose State’s offense, which was held in check through most of the first half, did record one big play when Faulkner hit Noel Grigsby on a 60-yard touchdown with 8:29 to play in the second quarter. The Jens Alvernik extra point gave SJSU the 14-10 lead. However, it was short-lived. On Tech’s ensuing possession, the Bulldogs used some trickery as a flea flicker pulled the Spartan safeties up as Cameron hit Patton on a 90-yard scoring strike. Patton caught the ball at midfield, sidestepped one defender and outraced two more to the endzone for the fifth longest pass play in Louisiana Tech history. It was also the longest play from scrimmage for Tech since 2004 when Matt Kubik hit Tramissian Davis for a 93-yard touchdown in a win at SMU. Nelson’s extra point gave Tech a 17-14 lead which it held until the final seconds of the first half when the Bulldogs began to pull away with the second touchdown from Cameron to Patton. Creer rushed 31 times for 112 yards and one score while Lee added 83 yards. In addition to his 237 yards passing, Cameron added 49 yards on 15 carries on the ground. Patton paced the Tech receivers with five catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns while David Gru and Taulib Ikharo added three receptions each. Faulkner completed 33-of-49 passes for 327 yards and three scores but threw four interceptions. The Bulldogs scored 17 points off of the five turnovers. Defensively, Dudley recorded 10 tackles, one tackle for loss and one interception return for a touchdown while Javontay Crowe added a career-high eight tackles and Johnson registered seven with one interception. Boyd and Justin Goodman also added interceptions.

LA Tech 41, Fresno State 21 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

November 5, 2011 Bulldog Stadium, Fresno, Calif.

132

FRESNO, Calif. - A bank of lights at Bulldog Stadium went out late in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s Western Athletic Conference matchup between Louisiana Tech and Fresno State. It was fitting. After all, Louisiana Tech had turned out the lights on Fresno State well before that point. Colby Cameron passed for a career-high 358 yards and four touchdowns and the LA Tech defense held Robbie Rouse and Co. in check as the Louisiana-based Bulldogs won for the fourth straight time with a 41-21 victory in what is the final game scheduled against Fresno State, which departs for the Mountain West next year. Tech gave Fresno State an emphatic sendoff. With the win, Tech (5-4, 4-1 WAC) remained one game behind Western Athletic Conference leader Nevada with two league games remaining. LA Tech will step out of WAC play next week when it travels to Ole Miss before finishing the year at Nevada Nov. 19 and at home against New Mexico State Nov. 26. On its way to winning for the fifth consecutive time on the road in a WAC stadium, the Bulldogs offense torched Fresno State early and often as Tech racked up 400 yards of total offense in the first half while building a 34-7 halftime lead. Tech jumped out to an early 14-0 lead on a pair of scoring tosses from Cameron to wide receiver Quinton Patton, the first covering 45 yards and the second 22 yards. Patton finished the game with 97 yards on six receptions and his two scores gave him nine for the year, which moved him into a tie for ninth with Chad Mackey, Ken Liberto, and Delwyn Daigre for touchdowns in a single season. Matt Nelson tacked on a 26-yard field goal early in the second quarter to push the lead to 17-0 before Fresno State responded with its first drive of the night. Derek Carr hit Victor Dean on a six-yard strike, culminating an eight-play, 82 yard drive. It was the first time all night that the announced crowd of 27,965 Fresno State fans had an opportunity to make some noise for the home team. Tech running back Lennon Creer soon silenced them. With Tech leading 17-7, the Bulldogs drove 90 yards on six plays and grabbed the momentum back when Creer ripped off a 53-yard touchdown run untouched. Nelson’s extra point made the score 24-7 with 7:38 to play. Creer ended the night with 113 yards on 17 carries. After another stellar defensive stop by the Tech defense on Fresno State’s ensuing possession, the Bulldogs struck again as Cameron rolled out and hit Myles White for a 75-yard touchdown - the final 35 yards covered with Patton giving him an escort to the endzone. Nelson hit a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds to play in the opening half as Tech took a 34-7 lead - and all the momentum - into the locker room. Any chance of a second half comeback by Fresno State was doused early in the third quarter when the Bulldogs drove 80-yards on seven plays and took a 41-7 lead on a six-yard pass from Cameron to Richie Casey. Fresno State scored a couple of meaningless touchdowns - one in the third and one in the fourth - while the Tech defense recorded a pair of second half interceptions as both Jay Dudley and Dave Clark registered their third of the year. Tech is now plus 11 in turnover margin in its last four games and the Bulldogs 15 interceptions leads the WAC. Making just his second start of the year, Cameron completed 18-of-32 passes in the game. David Gru (4-72), Casey (3-58-1) and White (2-130-1) were Tech’s top receiving threats. Defensively, Tech held the WAC’s leading rusher Robbie Rouse to only 97 yards on 24 carries with a long of nine yards. Rouse rushed for 286 yards against the Bulldogs last season.

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

OXFORD, Miss. - Walk-on running back Hunter Lee rushed for 127 yards and Louisiana Tech’s defense recorded a pair of second half scores as the Bulldogs dominated Southeastern Conference foe Ole Miss 27-7 Saturday night at the Rebels homecoming game before 44,123 fans at VaughtHemingway Stadium. With the victory, LA Tech (6-4, 4-1 WAC) becomes bowl eligible after recording its fifth straight win of the season. It also sets up a showdown next weekend in Reno against Nevada. Tech, which posted its eighth win all-time against an SEC team and its first since defeating Mississippi State 22-14 in 2008, got another stellar defensive effort from a unit that has spearheaded the Bulldogs recent success. In its usual opportunistic fashion, the Bulldogs defense came up big with the game still on the line. With Tech holding onto a 13-7 lead late in the third quarter, safety Chad Boyd picked up a fumble and raced 33-yards untouched to the end zone - taking the air out of the remaining Ole Miss fans and energizing the more than 3,000 Bulldog fans that made the road trip. The fumble recovery for a score by Boyd was the first by a Tech player since Carlin Thomas returned a fumble for a TD in a 30-23 loss at Oklahoma State in 2001. It didn’t take long for Tech to put the final nail in the proverbial coffin as safety Javontay Crowe recorded his first career interception and raced 26 yards for a touchdown with 11:08 to play in the game. It was the fourth interception return for a touchdown of the year for Tech, which ranks as the third most in the country behind only UL-Lafayette and Southern Miss. Although the final score was lopsided, it could have been much worse. In the opening half, Tech missed on numerous scoring opportunities. Ole Miss took an early 7-0 lead on a Randall Mackey 34-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Bolden with 8:53 to play in the opening quarter. It woke up the Bulldog defense which held the Rebels to only 51 more total yards the rest of the first half. While the Bulldog defense dominated, the Tech offense misfired. Colby Cameron dropped two perfect downfield throws into the hands of receivers D.J. St. Julien and Myles White, but neither was able to make the would-be touchdown reception. Junior kicker Matt Nelson also had his first half troubles, missing field goals of 40 and 35 yards. He would redeem himself hitting a 43-yarder at the end of the half and a 35-yarder early in the third quarter. Even the Bulldog special teams misfired on a great fake punt call as punter Ryan Allen - earlier this week named a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award - hit defensive end Matt Broha on a pass play picking up a first down inside of Ole Miss territory. However, Tech was flagged for a penalty and the play was negated forcing a Bulldog punt. Cameron did finally make the play of the first half for Tech’s offense as he eluded an Ole Miss defender in the backfield on a scramble on third down and lofted a perfectly thrown pass over four Rebel defenders into the back of the endzone for a 22-yard scoring strike to Taulib Ikharo with 3:32 to play in the first half. It appeared as the teams would enter the halftime locker room tied after Ole Miss failed to move the football on its next possession passed midfield as the Rebels punting unit pinned Tech back on its 5-yard line with 35 seconds to play. However, instead of kneeling on the ball to run out the clock, Lee took a handoff and raced 48 yards to the UM 47-yard line. A pair of Cameron completions - one of 13 yards to Quinton Patton and one of nine yards to Ikharo - set up Nelson for the 43-yard field goal and a 10-7 Tech advantage. Lee recorded his impressive outing after starting tailback Lennon Creer left the game in the first quarter with an injury. Creer was questionable to return but the Tech coaching staff didn’t need the bruising tailback as Lee carved up the Ole Miss defense on the ground. Adrien Cole led Tech with 10 tackles while Christian Lacey, Matt Broha, Justin Ellis and IK Enemkpali each registered sacks. The Tech defense also recorded three takeaways and had eight pass breakups in the game.

LA Tech 24, Nevada 20 2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

November 19, 2011 Mackay Stadium, Reno, Nev.

134

RENO, Nev. - Just when it looked like Nevada’s stranglehold on Louisiana Tech would continue, the Bulldogs woke up. Colby Cameron’s eight-yard touchdown pass to Taulib Ikharo with 51 seconds to play completed an amazing fourth quarter come-from-behind victory as Louisiana Tech snapped a six-game losing streak against the Wolf Pack with a 24-20 win at Mackay Stadium Saturday afternoon. “It was a big win for us,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “The way it unfolded and how we got down and hung in there, it was not easy. It happened because our guys worked hard, invested and believed in each other. This was a heck of a comeback. We had opportunities early but we couldn’t make plays. Once we started rolling and starting making plays, we got the momentum. Our players wanted to win so badly. I’m so proud of them for what they did today.” Stefphon Jefferson’s four-yard touchdown run with 13:01 to play in the fourth quarter gave Nevada what appeared to be an insurmountable 20-3 advantage. However, that’s when the Bulldogs offense shifted gears. Cameron, who finished the game 25-of-45 for 355 yards and three touchdowns, orchestrated an 11-play, 69-yard drive that was capped by a nine-yard strike to Quinton Patton. Matt Nelson’s extra point made it 20-10 with 9:11 to play. After the Tech defense forced a three-and-out, the Bulldogs took over and marched 89 yards down the field in six plays as Cameron found Myles White for a 14-yard touchdown pass as the Bulldogs pulled to within 20-17 with 5:56 to play in the game. The drive was highlighted by a number of big plays including a 24-yard strike to Patton and a 27-yard run by Cameron. “We were trying to get some sort of score quickly,” Dykes said. “The faster, the better. For us to be able to score that fast meant we didn’t have to onside kick. That was big. Our defense came out and made some big stops. We got the ball back with plenty of time and we made some big plays.” It was time for the LA Tech defense - which has made big play after big play this season - to make another one with an opportunity to win the WAC title on the line. After surrendering one first down, Tech forced another Wolf Pack punt as the Bulldogs offense was pinned down on their own seven-yard line with 2:26 to play in the game. Tech was faced with a third down and 12 from its own five-yard line when Cameron found Hunter Lee for a 23-yard pickup and a first down. Cameron then found Patton for 35 yards and Jaccari Jackson for 25 yards as the Bulldogs had first and 10 on the Wolf Pack 11-yard line. After a three-yard pickup by Lee on first down, Cameron found Taulib Ikharo on a fade route for an eight-yard touchdown pass as the Bulldogs took their first lead of the game. “To drive 93 yards for the game winner ... that was awesome,” Dykes said. Nevada had one last opportunity starting on its own 21-yard line with 47 seconds to play. However, Adrien Cole - who ended the night with 17 tackles - sacked Cody Fajardo on the last play of the game to secure the win. The victory was improbable after the Bulldogs managed only 161 yards of offense through the first three quarters of action while Nevada recorded 425 of its 465 total yards. “We never got into a flow in the first half,” Dykes said. “We are an offense where when we make a first down, the second one is easier and then the third one is easier. In the first half we never made one. We misfired on everything. Once we got the momentum and made some plays, good things started happening. “I talked (to the defense) the day before about not looking at the scoreboard. Just hang in there and expect something good to happen. And that’s what happened. We will enjoy this (victory) until tomorrow and then all of our focus will be on New Mexico State. The more games you win, the bigger they become at the end of the day. Next week will be big.”

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

RUSTON, La. - It was a fitting end to a championship run. Louisiana Tech’s defense recorded its first shutout at home since the mid-1990s, the Bulldog offense used a balanced attack led by walk-on running back Hunter Lee and the special teams unit added a score of its own as Tech blanked New Mexico State 44-0 Saturday afternoon under rain-soaked conditions at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the win, Tech (8-4, 6-1 WAC) won the Western Athletic Conference regular season title for the first time since 2001 and earned a trip to the San Diego Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21 to face either TCU or Boise State. “It’s good to get that last win and have a chance to look back at the whole thing now,” said Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. “It’s been a fun ride for this whole football team and it’s been great for everybody associated with this program. Surely, it feels great to win a championship and when we started camp, we knew we had the personnel to do so. We started off the season kind of rough, and everybody hung in there. It speaks about the character of our team as a whole because losing is a difficult thing to do.” Heading into the day tied with Nevada in the league standings, Tech’s lopsided win parlayed with the Wolf Pack’s 21-17 loss at Utah State gave the Bulldogs the outright league championship belt. Following the final gun, WAC Commissioner Karl Benson presented the championship trophy to the team while Poinsettia Bowl Chairman Bruce Binkowsky extended the invite to the postseason game in San Diego. Tech started the scoring on its first possession as Tech drove 77 yards in 12 plays and took a 3-0 advantage on a Matt Nelson 32-yard field goal at the 9:15 mark of the first quarter. The big play of the drive was a 35-yard completion from Colby Cameron to wide receiver Taulib Ikharo. After the Bulldogs defense forced a punt, Cameron directed LA Tech’s first touchdown drive of the game as this one covered 89 yards on 10 plays. The drive started with a 42-yard completion to Quinton Patton and culminated with a six-yard strike to Ikharo. Nelson extra point was no good as Tech led 9-0. The game stayed tight until late into the second quarter when Tech scored a pair of touchdowns in the final 30 seconds of the half. The first game on a Hunter one-yard plunge with only 28 seconds remaining in the second quarter, culminating an impressive 13-play, 96-yard drive - the longest of the season for Tech. Cameron gained 44 yards rushing on the drive, including a 24-yard scamper that put the Bulldogs in the red zone. Trailing 16-0 New Mexico State opted to take a chance late, and the decision backfired. Freshman quarterback Travaughn Colwell was intercepted by Bulldog linebacker Adrien Cole who returned it 45 yards for a touchdown as Tech took a 23-0 lead into the locker room. “It was critical because it all changed over a one minute span,” Dykes said. “It was 9-0 and a minute later it was 23-0. That was the key for us. We put together a nice drive to score and then returned an interception to score again. That’s something we’ve done all season. Our defense has done an excellent job at creating turnovers and then making big plays out of those turnovers.” The interception return for a TD was the Bulldogs sixth on the season. “Defensively, they kept us in it early in the game when they were up 9-0,” said NMSU coach Dwayne Walker. “I take full responsibility for the interception right before halftime because I told them to take a shot at the end zone and just see what we can get out of it. I wanted to at least get into field goal range and he (Adrien Cole) went and returned the interception for a touchdown. That’s when it all went downhill for us.” Any change of an Aggie comeback was doused in the third quarter as Lee touchdown runs of six- and seven-yards bookended an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown by Craig Johnson as Tech took a commanding 44-0 lead into the final period. Lee rushed for a career-high 148 yards and three touchdowns while Cameron passed for 217 yards and one score, including eight receptions for 105 yards and one touchdown to Ikharo. Cole led a tenacious Bulldog defense, recording 12 tackles. Tech’s defense held an Aggies team that had entered the game averaging over 27 points per game to zero as New Mexico State totaled 279 yards and the Bulldogs defense registered seven sacks. The victory was the seventh straight for the Bulldogs, the longest winning streak since the early 1970s and the eight regular season wins is the most since the 1999 Tim

#15 TCU 31, LA Tech 24

2012 BULLDOG FOOTBALL

2011 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl December 21, 2011 Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, Calif.

136

SAN DIEGO - Fifteenth-ranked TCU scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to complete a 31-24 comefrom-behind victory over Louisiana Tech in the 2011 San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl Wednesday night at Qualcomm Stadium. With Tech (8-5) leading 24-17 midway through the fourth quarter, TCU running back Luke Shivers completed an impressive 18-play, 72-yard drive with a one-yard plunge with 7:49 to play to tie the game at 24-24. After a three-and-out by the Bulldog offense on its ensuing possession, TCU (11-2) took the lead on a 42-yard strike from Casey Pachall to Skye Dawson with 4:26 to play. The touchdown came on a third-down-and-five play where TCU caught the Bulldogs blitzing and the speedster Dawson beat the LA Tech secondary for the score. Quarterback Colby Cameron and the Bulldog offense had one final opportunity but another three-and-out - the third of the second half - forced a Tech punt and TCU ran out the clock by grinding out two first downs via the ground. The Bulldogs had the momentum in the opening two quarters as Matt Nelson’s 23yard field goal with 8:30 to play in the first quarter gave Tech a 3-0 lead. The score capped a 13-play, 65-yard drive by Tech which was highlighted by a 28-yard pass from Cameron to Quinton Patton that took the Bulldogs down to the TCU 12-yard line. However, Tech was unable to get into the endzone on six plays inside the TCU red zone, forcing the field goal attempt. Following a Hunter Lee fumble inside the TCU 35-yard line late in the first quarter, the Horned Frogs drove deep inside Tech territory and tied the game on a Ross Evans 25-yard field goal with 14:11 to play in the second quarter. Tech countered immediately with a seven-play, 59-yard drive that was capped by Cameron’s two-yard strike to Patton - a play that was initially ruled as an incompletion but that was overturned after instant replay. Nelson’s extra point made it 10-3. The drive was highlighted by a 26-yard toss from Cameron to Taulib Ikharo that took the ball down to the TCU four-yard line. The Bulldogs appeared to have all the momentum heading into half until TCU corner Greg McCoy intercepted a Cameron pass with just over two minutes to play and returned it to the LA Tech 25-yard line. Four plays later, Ed Wesley tied the game on a seven-yard run with only 55 seconds to play in the half. The two teams entered the locker room tied despite the fact Tech ran 21 more offensive plays than the Horned Frogs and outgained TCU 266-144. TCU took its first lead of the contest on their opening drive of the second half as Matthew Tucker scored from one-yard out, ending an 11-play, 55-yard drive. Trailing 17-10, Tech was forced to punt on its next possession but the Bulldogs special teams came up big as Josh Cuthbert recovered a muffed punt by Brandon Carter inside the TCU red zone. Three plays later, Lee hit paydirt from two yards out and the game was tied again at 17-17. After neither team was able to move the ball on their next possessions, the Bulldog defense came up with a turnover as Quinn Giles intercepted Paschall on the Tech 39-yard line. On a third-down-and 10 play, Cameron found Myles White deep over the middle for a 61-yard touchdown. Nelson’s extra point was good as Tech regained the advantage 24-17. TCU then put together the drive of the night, marching 72 yards on 18 plays and tying the game at 24 on a one-yard run by Shivers. The Horned Frogs recorded six first downs on the drive, converting two fourth down conversions and picking up a huge first down on a defensive pass interference call in the end zone on a third-down-and-goal at the nine. The Horned Frogs dominated the time of possession in the second half, holding onto the football for 24 minutes and 10 seconds while running 52 offensive plays to LA Tech’s 21. Cameron finished the game completing 21-of-43 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns with one interception while White (7-110, 1 TD) and Patton (5-67, 1 TD) were his top two targets. Lee rushed 20 times for 64 yards and one score. Defensively, the Bulldogs were led by Jay Dudley (10 tackles, 1 TFL), Justin Goodman (9 tackles, 1.5 TFL) and Jamel Johnson (9 tackles). Tech ends the season 8-5, the most wins by a Tech team since 1999. The Bulldogs also won their second Western Athletic Conference championship and participated in their second bowl game in the last four years.
