Louisiana Tech had some trouble with UAB last week, you might have heard this.
Some Tech fans had some concerns about their Bulldogs — this is typical of diehards. In this one, Tech came out on a mission, flying around and crisp on offense.
At least on the first drive. LA Tech came out and jumped to an early 7-0 lead and then had some trouble with the talented UTSA defense for a while.
Overall, the Tech offense did not overly impress — just 384 yards of offense — but they did enough to win. J’Mar Smith found George Scott to make it 24-0 in the third quarter and that about ended things.
UTSA was a disaster on both sides of the ball and in the game operations.
UTSA recap so far tonight:
New cannon doesn't fire but box in front of it does.
Field goal horn sounds for missed field goal.
Cheerleaders run with flags to celebrate missed field goal.
Only thing left to find out is if Come and Take it Flag is right side up.

The cheer squad celebrated (accidentally) the missed Jared Sacket field goal, and the debut of the new cannon was less-than-impressive.

The original tweet with this video was deleted.
The UTSA twitter reaction was, well, not good.
A box. Our cannon is a box. Nobody is going to come and take that. They’re going to leave it because it’s a box.

It at least was funny.
Okay, back to talking up Tech, who were good against a bad team. in the end, taking care of business is what the agenda called for and that is what Skip Holtz’ boys accomplished.
The path to the division title requires UAB to stumble — hopefully, next week if you are a Bulldog fan — and for Tech to win out. Beating UTSA was simply a thing that needed to be done in that case. In case you are wondering, if UAB does stumble and NT, Louisiana Tech, and the Blazers all win out it could come down to the College Football Playoff ranking.
