’Dogs advance in polls
Following its ninth straight road victory dating back to last year, Louisiana Tech moved up in the Associated Press Poll and entered the USA Today Coaches Poll this week after defeating New Mexico State 28-14 Saturday night in Las Cruces.
Sonny Dykes and the Bulldogs moved up two spots to No. 22 in the AP Top 25 poll, the highest the program has ever been ranked in any poll since its move to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1989. Tech garnered 209 points following its seventh victory of the season.
