RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech officials have announced the University’s 2018 Homecoming is set to take place on the weekend of Oct. 20 and will highlight the Bulldogs’ Conference USA home contest against UTEP at Joe Aillet Stadium.

The October meeting with the Miners will mark Louisiana Tech’s 93rd annual Homecoming game with the Bulldogs holding a 67-23-2 all-time record in those contests. LA Tech currently leads the all-time series, 11-2-1, over UTEP, including having won five straight over the Miners.

A kickoff time and potential broadcast information for the Oct. 20 Homecoming game between Louisiana Tech and UTEP has yet to be determined.

Louisiana Tech fans can now purchase or renew their season tickets for the upcoming 2018 football season with the Bulldogs coming off four consecutive bowl wins and slated to host five home games next season.

Head coach Skip Holtz and Co. have built a Louisiana Tech program that is one of only four in the nation (along with Georgia, Utah and Wisconsin) that has posted four consecutive bowl victories dating back to the 2014 season.

The Bulldogs will host five home games over the course of the 2018 season, including four Conference USA opponents with UAB (Oct. 6), UTEP (Oct. 20 – Homecoming), Rice (Nov. 10) and WKU (Nov. 24) scheduled to visit Ruston and Joe Aillet Stadium next year. Louisiana Tech's 2018 home opener is set for Saturday, Sept. 8 when the Bulldogs welcome the Southern Jaguars to town in week two of the season.

Louisiana Tech fans are encouraged to renew or purchase season tickets as early as possible to secure their seats for the five home games the Bulldogs are scheduled to host next season.
