what to know

This Saturday, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs hope to plug the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 38.83 points per game. The Bulldogs and Rice Owls will square off in a Conference USA battle on Saturday at 3 pm ET at Joe Aillet Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last match, both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.

Last week, Louisiana Tech lost to North Texas Mean Green on the road by a decisive 47-27 margin. Despite the loss, Louisiana Tech had strong performances from WR Tre Harris, who caught five passes for a TD and 114 yards, and QB Parker McNeil, who passed for two TDs and 424 yards on 37 attempts. One of the most exciting moments was Harris’ 58-yard TD reception in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, it was a close game, but Rice had to settle for a 17-14 loss to the Florida Atlantic Owls last week. Rice was up 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, but couldn’t hold the lead. The losing side was fueled by WR Bradley Rozner, who caught four passes for a TD and 135 yards. One of the most exciting moments was Rozner’s 78-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

Louisiana Tech is expected to lose this next one by 3. Those who got burned picking them against the spread last week should note that the team has yet to lose back-to-back games against the spread this season.

The Bulldogs were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap when the two teams previously met in November of last year when they fell 35-31 to Rice. Perhaps Louisiana Tech will have more luck at home than on the road? Watch the contest and check back with CBS Sports for all the details.
