RUSTON - For the second week in a row, Louisiana Tech punter Ryan Allen has been named the Western Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance in the Bulldogs 51-27 win over UTSA.

Allen, a senior from Salem, Ore. (Oregon State), punted twice for a 62.0-yard average in Louisiana Tech's 51-27 win over UTSA.
