With no Kenneth Dixon for the second straight week, LA Tech decided to come out throwing. The strategy paid off early as the visiting Bulldogs jumped out to a 14-0 lead by mostly using five receiver sets.

Jeff Driskel passed for 303 yards and 2 touchdowns for the game and Trent Taylor finished with 10 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown. LA Tech had 413 yards of offense for the game, but they had just 110 yards on the ground.

Dak Prescott had three passing touchdowns for the home team and he added another one on the ground. De'Runnya Wilson had 7 catches for 85 yards and 2 TD's.

LA Tech out rushed State and held the ball for over 7 more minutes than their SEC hosts. In the end, 3-14 on 3rd down and a late interception return for a touchdown put the visitors away.

Tech (4-3, 2-1) returns home next week to host MTSU in a key Conference USA game.
