NEW ORLEANS — A late-inning rally fell short for Louisiana Tech as the Bulldogs dropped the weekend finale, 9-6, to the New Orleans Privateers Sunday afternoon at Maestri Field.
With Tech (2-1) trailing 8-2 after six complete innings of play, the Bulldogs put together a big inning in the seventh by plating four runs on five base hits, but New Orleans (3-0) was able to put a stop to the damage and clinch the victory over Tech in the final game of the MLB Urban Invitational.

The ESPN network will feature its annual “College Football Bowl Selection Special” from 8:30-10 p.m., CDT, at which time the entire schedule of postseason games will be announced by host Rece Davis and analysts Jesse Palmer, David Pollack and Kirk Herbstreit.
