La. Tech, GSU battle in ‘backyard’
Two football games involving Lincoln Parish universities on Saturday can be called your proverbial “backyard brawls.”
At Joe Aillet Stadium, Louisiana Tech University will open up its home schedule with a 6 p.m. duel against the University of Central Arkansas, a Football Championship Series toughie whose head coach (Clint Conque) formerly coordinated the Bulldogs’ offense.
And 30 miles down Interstate 20, Grambling State University will tussle with the University of Louisiana-Monroe at the Warhawks’ stadium starting at 6 p.m.
