Louisiana Tech Bulldogs College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction
Louisiana Tech wasn’t very good at the whole college football thing in 2020 and it still went 5-5.
It wasn’t exactly the momentum year coming off the terrific 10-3 2019 season with a bowl win over Miami, but for being a mediocre run it wasn’t totally miserable.
There was a win over UAB, a close one-point loss at UTSA, and enough victories to get to a bowl game, even if it was a 38-3 New Orleans Bowl loss to Georgia Southern when nothing seemed to work right.
The 2021 version should be far more interesting. There are plenty of flaws and concerns, but this could be a case of okay-team-good-record.
Set The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Regular Season Win Total At … 7.5
Both sides of the line have to be night-and-day better, the offensive production has to return again, and the team has to do a better job of putting away the easy wins.
However, head coach Skip Holtz might have enough in place to push though the rough patches and come up with something solid.
At Mississippi State, at NC State – those are the two more likely losses. Going to UAB will be a problem, and dates against SMU, Southern Miss and Rice should be pesky. But this schedule screams seven wins – maybe eight.
It’s going to take some big performances out of areas that didn’t do much of anything, but the coaching is great, that schedule is soft – no Florida Atlantic, Marshall or WKU – and the program has become too good now to be mediocre.
The rebuilding/reloading 2020 was okay, but now the payoff has to be there – and it probably will be.
