Looking ahead : La. Tech wins, too

August 31, 2008


Going Deep

Learning about La. Tech

In Week 2 of Going Deep, Matt Tait and Eric Sorrentino welcome Jimmy Watson, of the Shreveport Times, and the trio discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the Louisiana Tech squad the Jayhawks will face on Sept. 6. In addition to sizing up the Bulldogs, Watson talks about the southern bias that exists against teams like KU.

Kansas University's next football opponent, Louisiana Tech, opened its season with an ugly 22-14 victory Saturday over Mississippi State in Ruston, La.

The teams combined for eight turnovers and 14 punts, but Tech claimed its first win over a Southeastern Conference school since 1999.

Saturday, Tech managed just 243 total offensive yards and 16 first downs, but recorded four interceptions.

La. Tech's best weapon Saturday might have been kicker Brad Oestriecher, who was 3-for-3 on field goals, including a 48- and a 50-yarder.
