Louisiana Tech could be tough test for A&M

Texas A&M will look to go a perfect 4-0 before starting the Big 12 conference season when they host Louisiana Tech Saturday at Kyle Field at 6 p.m.

The Bulldogs (1-1) started the season off strong in the first half against Nebraska, keeping the score close at 14-10 until Husker running back Cody Glenn run into the end zone with seven seconds left in the first half to push the score to 21-10. The Huskers reeled off 28 unanswered points in the second half to seal the win in Lincoln.

After an off week, Louisiana Tech had Division I-AA Nicholls State to beat up on in Ruston, but the Nicholls State had other plans as they rushed out to a 21-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Bulldogs needed to score 24 unanswered points over the rest of the game to squeak out the 31-21 victory.

During those two games, it's been evident that the Louisiana Tech offense has been able to move the ball, especially through the air. Quarterback Zac Champion has found a favorite receiver in Jonathan Holland and the two have connected on 10 passes thus far for 193 yards and a touchdown.
