Ruston holds off Simsboro

With the Lady ‘Cats leading 44-42 with 15 seconds remaining, Bonner missed the front end of a 1-and-1, giving Simsboro another chance to tie or win the game.
The Lady Tigers were unable to get a shot off on their possession, but a loose ball tie-up gave them one last chance with 1.9 seconds left in the game.
After trading a couple of timeouts to set up offenses and defenses, the Lady Tigers had a chance to get off one final shot.

’Cats ready to open new soccer season on Tuesday

The Bearcats have established themselves as one of the rising programs in the state and the premier team in Division I in northeast Louisiana over the past several years.
Coming off three straight district championships, including the school’s first-ever undefeated district title last year, and a playoff win in the first round each of the past two years (the first two playoff victories in school history), the Bearcats are looking to turn the corner and take the next step.

GSU wins ‘Classic’ with 50-35 victory over Southern

Led by their record setting quarterback, the Tigers (9-1, 8-0) unloaded for another big day on offense and defeated rival Southern University 50-35.
Nearly 54,000 fans were present at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans and a change in venues for the “Bayou Classic” after Hurricane Katrina made the New Orleans Superdome unusable.
It didn’t bother Bruce Eugene, who holds the majority of passing and total offense records for Grambling.

Broncos bust out with 30-13 win

Really, had you been one of the witnesses to a Western Athletic Conference showdown with Louisiana Tech University at Joe Aillet Stadium on Saturday, you surely wouldn’t have bought into that belief.
Oh, for the first half, it was one of those vintage ol’ West punch ‘em out duels with their rivals from the Bayou State, but it eventually turned ugly for the ‘Dogs in the last 30 minutes.
From an anybody-can-win-it scenario at intermission, this eighth ever matchup between the two schools transformed into an eventual Bronco bustin’ 30-13 victory.

Bicknell, Bulldogs focused on ‘bowl game’ against FSU

“That was a rough one, for sure,” Bicknell said. “It’s been a hard one to get over. I told the coaches we’ve got to stop our kids from moping around and pick our heads up.”
It appeared Bicknell was not the only one who had a difficult time overcoming the loss in a game in which the Bulldogs held a 10-7 edge at the half. For the first time in more than a month, Tech’s top dog didn’t receive a hand when he entered the dining area set aside for Quarterback Club members in Maxwell’s Restaurant.

What are you doing out here?

No. Was I running through my lunch break around Sam Goody and Bath and Body Works holding presents in both arms? Yes.
People plan for Christmas more than any other event of the year, I believe. I go to more parties, eat more food and get more gifts during the month of December than any other time. Now, I thought about this for a long time and wondered: Why?
Christmas has been called “the season of giving.” That’s completely true. The trunk of my car and my spare room is currently filled with Christmas gifts for family and friends. However, are we really the people who need gifts?

It’s almost here: Tech vs. Boise State

In arguably the most important game in Bulldogs’ history since a 1990 Independence Bowl-clinching win of 31-30 was achieved against Colorado State, the two teams have a couple of major objectives on the docket:
1-Wrap up a bowl berth.
2-Stay alive for a league championship.
A victory will achieve those goals.

Holiday evolves over time

With my family spread apart from Texas to Arkansas, as well as my in-laws in Pineville, it’s virtually impossible to get around to every stop we need to make during the holiday season.
Therefore, my mother, being the ever-flexible woman that she is, volunteered to hold our Christmas celebration at her place on Thanksgiving (yes, my mother is clever and flexible, but she also ensured that I’ll be at her house for Thanksgiving from here on out).
