’Dogs playing with ‘house money’
For Louisiana Tech University’s football team, everything now is the proverbial “icing on the cake.”
After being picked among the also-rans in the Western Athletic Conference and relegated to the lower tiers of the Football Bowl Sudivision rankings during the preseason, the Bulldogs are playing with “house money.”
They’re champs of the WAC — outright, no less — and heading to the Dec. 21 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
Forget that they’ll go into that 7 p.m. (CDT) ESPN-televised game as an underdog to Top 25 ranked TCU.
