This could be one of those weeks for Louisiana Tech University’s football team where it’s difficult not to look ahead.
On Saturday, the Bulldogs (4-6, 3-3) play at San Jose State (1-10, 0-6), a team at the bottom of the Western Athletic Conference and losers of its last eight games.
On Dec. 4, the ’Dogs play a regular season finale in Ruston against Nevada, which has the opposite overall mark of San Jose State and has been included in the nation’s Top 25; that game could decide whether or not Tech becomes bowl eligible.
In a game that started on Saturday and experienced multiple rain delays, Parker King (above) and the Cedar Creek Cougars were declared 9-3 winners over St. Martin’s Sunday when the game was finally called for good in the sixth inning. The ninth-seeded Cougars will next play the winner of top-seeded Central Catholic vs. No. 16 Grand Lake later this week.
