The red zone is crucial for both offenses and defenses on football teams.
Good performances can help lead you to a win. Poor performances often result in a loss.
Louisiana Tech found that out the hard way during Saturday’s 51-27 loss to Mississippi State at Joe Aillet Stadium.
Tech started strong, building a 9-0 lead before the wheels came off.
The Bulldogs took advantage of three of five red zone chances while allowing MSU to make good on four of five of its opportunities.
