Louisiana Tech broke their losing streak Saturday against Conference USA opponent UTEP, which proved to be a tough game, and a meaningful win. The Miners hadn't been beaten on homecoming in 5 years until Saturday night.
It was a total team effort by the Bulldogs as their offensive production finally matched up with their defensive prowess this season. Tech scored a late 4th quarter touchdown and held off UTEP to improve to 1-1 in their new conference, where they sit in the middle of the standings.
They've been in this position before, 2 years ago when they had to come from behind to win the WAC conference and last night's victory was one in the right direction.
The Bulldogs will get to rest up this week and host North Texas October 19th.
