Davis, OK.jpg

This is a great time to be a college football fan in Lincoln Parish.
Not just any college, mind you, but specifically Grambling State University and Louisiana Tech University.
The Tigers and Bulldogs are giving their faithful followers plenty to cheer about as they embark on the final half of their schedules.
Already, this has developed into one of the most interesting and unique seasons in the history of either program.
Let’s start with Grambling, which has been a tough team to figure out the last two years.

Tech remains unbeaten in C-USA play with rivalry win over USM

HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — Sometimes you just have to change things up a little to keep from getting stagnant.
A little change certainly paid off for Louisiana Tech University Saturday afternoon as the Bulldogs defeated Southern Miss 31-20, winning the game dubbed the “Rivalry in Dixie” and remaining undefeated in Conference USA play at 4-0 (5-3 overall).
Change was simply in the air for the Bulldogs, who for the first time since 1967 donned white helmets emblazoned with the state-and-T logo.

ARCADIA — It almost seemed like Halloween came a week early for the Grambling Laboratory High School Kittens Friday night at Hornets Stadium in Arcadia.
The Hornets used the three-headed monster of quarterback Dan Fields, receiver Trey Cortez and running back Richard Rogers to lead Arcadia High to a 28-22 comeback win over the Kittens.

James’ repeat performance snags big buck

in
102614 Glynn C.jpg

Between the years of 1975-78, Louisiana Tech defensive end Jackie James no doubt found himself having to make a tackle a fellow defensive lineman had missed.
On Oct. 15, James cleaned up after another miss. This time, though, the miscue he corrected was his own.
After missing a big buck with his bow, James credits a quick prayer for another chance, his prayer was answered and he nailed a big 13-point buck weighing just over 200 pounds, a buck that green scored 149 inches at Simmons Sporting Goods Big Buck Contest.

Buddy's Blog: Tech, GSU having fun time on gridiron

Davis, OK.jpg

Talk about a year making a huge difference for the football programs at Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University.
But that’s definitely the story lines that have evolved over the past 12 months for the Bulldogs and Tigers.
When the 2013 campaigns had shut down, the Lincoln Parish teams had records that were lower than a snake’s back.
Tech finished at 4-7.
Some disgruntled fans were wanting to run new head coach Skip Holtz out of town before the season reached the halfway stage.

Hervey sparks win for Tech soccer

in

Sophomore Kailee Hervey was the only substitution for Louisiana Tech in the first half and it paid off as she knocked in a diving header late in the first period for the 1-0 win against WKU on Friday night at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex.
The Tech (11-5-2, 3-4-1 Confernce USA) defense was just as stellar as the effort by Hervey on the game winner, allowing just five shots the entire match.
Tech continues its home stand at noon today against Marshall.

Tech volleyball team tops Charlotte

in

History repeated itself on Friday night as Louisiana Tech’s volleyball team went in to Halton Arena and knocked off the Charlotte 49ers, 3-1 (19-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-20), for the team’s first Conference USA victory of the season for the second straight season.
A season ago, the Lady Techsters defeated the 49ers, 3-1, in road play for the team’s first league victory of the 2013 season.
One year later, Tech (9-14, 1-8 C-USA) played almost an exact replica of that match as the team came back from down a set to defeat Charlotte (13-14, 2-8 C-USA) in its home arena.
