Bulldogs get past Rice, 28-13

in
Tech continues ugly, but winning, brand of football
sports2.jpg

Maybe they should be called Bullfrogs — after all, it hasn’t exactly been a pretty season for the Louisiana Tech football team.
But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been a successful one so far.
Tech overcame three turnovers Saturday night to cook up a 28-13 win over Rice in Conference USA play at Joe Aillet Stadium.
Two interceptions thrown by Tech quarterback J-Mar Smith and a fumble on a quarterback-running back exchange didn’t stop the Bulldogs from improving to 7-3 on the season, 5-1 in Conference USA play.

Amidst the alcohol stained streets in the French Quarters, there is a huge anticipation party in the works.
Not that we should be playing the role of the jinkster just yet, because the Big Game for NFL bragging rights is still several months away.
But the New Orleans Saints are surely giving the revelers on Bourbon Street a good reason to order another round or two of brew.
This past week has been cause for such unabashed joy.
Last Sunday, the Saints gave the Rams their first loss with a 45-35 victory in the noise deafening bowels of the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

LSU rebounds with win over Razorbacks

in

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Ed Orgeron could be heard screaming encouragement through the door of the LSU locker room following a 24-17 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night.
It wasn’t the prettiest of finishes to an otherwise dominant victory, but the coach of the No. 9 Tigers (8-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) was all about restoring a sense of swagger after a disheartening home loss to No. 1 Alabama a week ago.
Led by Joe Burrow and a dominating defensive effort, LSU did just that while winning for the third straight time over the struggling Razorbacks (2-8, 0-6).

Southern California also battered by wildfires that killed 2

in

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Just a day ago, Arik Fultz was feeding the horses on his 40-acre ranch near Malibu.
Now, after wildfires roared through parts of Southern California, there’s nothing left of his ranch but charred remains. His family and his 52 horses survived. But two houses, two barns, three trailers and decades of accumulated possessions are gone.
“It just doesn’t feel real that it’s all gone,” he said.
