Bulldogs Break Nevada Jinx

Louisiana Tech scored 21 points in the final 10 minutes of play to rally for a 24-20 win over Nevada in Reno, snapping the Wolf Pack’s stranglehold over the Bulldogs on the gridiron. Trailing 20-3 with less than 10 minutes to play, Colby Cameron orchestrated three touchdown drives culminating with an eight-yard TD toss to Taulib Ikharo with 51 seconds to play, giving Tech is first win over the Wolf Pack since 2004.

Tech defeated NMSU 45-0 the following week to claim its first WAC football title since 2001.
