Louisiana Tech Looks to Rebound Against UTSA
Louisiana Tech is coming off a frustrating loss last week to UAB, where they scored just one touchdown. It was the Bulldogs worst offensive game since Skip Holtz became the Head Coach at La Tech.
This week, the Bulldogs are at Texas-San Antonio to get back on track. On offense, La Tech should benefit this Saturday by the return of leading rusher Jaqwis Dancy, who has missed the last two weeks with an injury. Israel Tucker is also expected to play after getting just five carries against UAB.
On defense, UTSA is likely going to have a hard time with Bulldogs star Jaylon Ferguson. He's similar to a player that UTSA is very familiar with, New Orleans Saints rookie Marcus Davenport, who is a former star at UTSA.
Ferguson is the current career leader for sacks in the NCAA ranks with 33.5 sacks in his career. He's likely to be an NFL draft pick next year, and he's looking at games like this to raise his profile. UTSA's offense has been struggling, and Ferguson's ability can cause devastation against a weak offense.
If Ferguson does his thing, and Dancy can return to form, Louisiana Tech should head back to Ruston with a big win in their pocket.
