Tech (2-3, 1-0 Conference USA) plays host to UTEP at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Bulldogs annual Community Trust Bank RED OUT game. The contest will feature two of the league’s top running backs in Tech’s Kenneth Dixon and UTEP’s Aaron Jones, so a lot of clock-eating rushing is expected from both teams.
