Louisiana Tech University will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Joe Aillet Stadium at 6 p.m. Saturday as the Bulldogs play their home season opener by playing host to Southern University.

Tech enters the game at 1-0 after kicking off the season last weekend with a 30-26 road win at South Alabama last weekend while Southern lost in its season opener, falling 55-7 at Texas Christian University.

It will mark only the second meeting between the two in-state rivals. Tech defeated Southern 62-15 over the Jaguars in 2015.
