PLAYERS TO WATCH:


RB Kenneth Dixon has been a touchdown machine during his Tech career, and this season was no different. A 5-foot-10, 212-pound product of Strong, Ark., Dixon scored 21 rushing touchdowns and caught five touchdown passes this year. He's averaging 5.2 yards per carry and has rushed for 1,316 yards. Dixon has scored at least one TD in every game and scored a rushing touchdown in 12 straight.

QB Cody Sokol will be looking to bounce back in the bowl game after a horrid performance in the Conference USA championship against Marshall. The senior was 7 of 20 for 72 yards and threw a fourth-quarter interception. Those numbers were an anomaly for Sokol, who threw for more than 3,100 yards this season and completed 29 touchdown passes. Sokol started his career at Scottsdale Community College and transferred to Tech from Iowa.

WR Trent Taylor became Tech's leading receiver this year with an outstanding sophomore campaign. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound product of Shreveport, La., caught 62 balls for 814 yards and nine touchdowns all team highs. Taylor had 260 yards on 28 catches and scored twice as a freshman.

In his second season in Ruston, La., coach Skip Holtz helped return Tech to prominence. The Bulldogs went from 4-8 in 2013 to the Conference USA title game in 2014. Holtz and defensive coordinator Manny Diaz put together one of the league's top defenses and Holtz's offense became one of the more-feared balanced attacks in C-USA. Despite slip-ups to Northwestern State and Old Dominion, Tech appears headed in the right direction under Holtz.

BOWL HISTORY: Louisiana Tech is 2-3-1 in bowl games. The Bulldogs last reached the postseason in 2011 (they went 9-3 in 2012 but not participate in a bowl) and last won a bowl game in 2008. Tech has been to the Independence Bowl four times and the Humanitarian and Poinsetta bowls once each.



QUOTE TO NOTE:
"I'm just proud of the guys that stepped up and competed today. It's one of those games I wish we had back, but we've just got to keep pushing through and get to the bowl game and hopefully we'll get a trophy then." Defensive end Houston Bates on losing the Conference USA title game.
