RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech will close out the regular season this weekend with split-squad competition as the squads will go in opposite directions to the Jace LaCoste Invitational hosted by Mississippi State and the Horned Frog Invitational hosted by TCU.

The majority of the team will head west to Fort Worth as TCU hosts the Horned Frog Invitational with several ranked teams participating including TCU and Texas A&M.

Meanwhile at Mississippi State, LA Tech will have middle distance and distance runners competing. The No. 13 men's team and the No. 22 women's team will be playing host to 21 teams at the Mike Sanders Track and Field Complex in Starkville, Mississippi.

This weekend's action on either side of the Pelican state marks the last weekend of action on the books for Louisiana Tech before the 2015 Conference USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The league's annual postseason meet will be held in El Paso, Texas and hosted by UTEP this year.

With ranked teams at both meets, Louisiana Tech will face challenging competition across the board.
