1. Louisiana Tech just beat Miami in a bowl game
Enough about Miami.
Louisiana Tech just beat the University of Miami in a bowl.
The program just finished with a ten-win season, won its sixth straight bowl game under head coach Skip Holtz, and it pulled off something terrific.
La Tech beat Illinois in the 2014 Heart of Dallas, but this was different. Miami was supposed to have a strong season, this was supposed to be a chance to make amends for past issues, and it was supposed to be when the program was going to make a big statement under Manny Diaz going into next year.
Instead, this was Louisiana Tech’s bowl – able to pull it off even though the offense didn’t play well.
Considering Conference USA was 1-4 in rough fashion in the bowls before this, good for the league, and good for Holtz and Louisiana Tech.
