’Dogs earn votes in national poll
Louisiana Tech University’s football team added some more footnotes to its impressive 2011 resume on Sunday.
In the weekly USA Today/American Football Coaches Association national poll voted on by a panel of coaches, the Bulldogs was one of 35 teams to receive votes.
It marks the first time since week No. 13 of the 1999 campaign that a Tech team had earned votes in a national poll; in that year, the Bulldogs ranked No. 15 after a 58-17 win over the University of Louisiana-Monroe to reach a 7-3 mark on the year.
