Can Tech end Mississippi ‘jinx?’
This season hasn’t been kind to Louisiana Tech University’s football team when it goes into the state of Mississippi.
Two games, two defeats.
In a 2011 opener at the University of Southern Mississippi, the Bulldogs lost 19-17.
Three games later, at Mississippi State, a heart-breaking 26-20 loss occurred in overtime.
“Mississippi Tech,” sighed Tech senior linebacker Adrien Cole on Monday, and he didn’t mean it in a positive way.
Tech will try and reverse that trend on Saturday when it plays Ole Miss at Oxford starting at 6:30 p.m.
