Geaux Bulldogs. Geaux Tigers. But most of all, Geaux “Buddy.” Louisiana Tech and Grambling State fans can buy the official “Buddy Bowl” T-shirts for the upcoming football game between the Bulldogs and the Tigers set to be played Sept. 7 at Joe Aillet Stadium. That game has been nicknamed the “Buddy Bowl” in honor of Ruston Daily Leader Executive Sports Editor Emeritus O.K. “Buddy” Davis, who passed away on July 13 at the age of 72. The shirt is offered in both Louisiana Tech blue and Grambling State gold colors.

The shirts cost $20 each and must be ordered online by midnight on Monday.

Proceeds from sales will go to the Buddy Davis Endowed Scholarship for Grambling State University and Louisiana Tech Athletics.
