Game Summary

As a lifelong Tech fan and supporter, this was easily one of the most deflating losses that I have witnessed at Joe Aillet Stadium. After the student section was deserted and most of the fans had gone home after North Texas took a 37-20 lead with 10 minutes to play. Without starting quarterback Hank Bachmeier, Jack Turner filled in for the injured senior and had the green light to launch the ball deep. A 43-yard strike to Cyrus Allen, multiple defensive pass interferences, a Barnes field goal, and an electric Smoke Harris touchdown even the score at 37 with a minute to play. Needing a stop to force overtime, the defense allowed a 3rd and 4 conversion on a 7-yard completion to Burns, and more detrimentally allowed a brutal 21-yard Adeyi rush on 3rd and 7 from the Bulldogs’ 35-yard line. After the long run, the Mean Green knocked down a 31-yard field goal to silence the remaining crowd and give Louisiana Tech their second loss of the season.
