A record-tying 17 home games and a neutral site contest at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City highlight the 2016-17 Louisiana Tech men’s basketball schedule, announced by head coach Eric Konkol on Tuesday.
After a home exhibition with Southern Arkansas, the regular season will officially tipoff on Nov. 11 at South Carolina.
Senior running back Kenneth Dixon scored four times on a soggy turf Saturday as Louisiana Tech defeated Middle Tennessee State 45-16 in a Conference USA showdown at Joe Aillet Stadium.
Playing in a steady driving rain, Dixon ran for only 66 yards on 14 carries but hit paydirt three different times on the ground — while surpassing the 4,000 career rushing yard mark — and added another score and 52 yards receiving on two catches.
It was Dixon’s first game back after missing a pair of contests with an ankle injury.
