Louisiana Tech stays at No. 20 in BCS polls

Posted: Updated:

Louisiana Tech remained No. 19 in the Associated Press poll and No. 20 in the BCS Standings and dropped one spot to No. 19 in the USA Today/Coaches Poll following the team's 62-55 win at Texas State in San Marcos.

Tech (9-1, 4-0 Western Athletic) remained No. 19 in the AP poll despite gaining an additional 19 votes from last week's poll. The Bulldogs are one spot behind an 8-2 Texas team that was tied for 19th with the Bulldogs last week.

Louisiana Tech dropped one spot to No. 19 in the USA Today/Coaches Poll and is one spot behind a 9-1 Louisville team that recently lost by 19 points at an unranked Syracuse team.

While LA Tech stayed at No. 20 in the BCS Standings, the Bulldogs made a sharp increase in its poll percentage average rising from .1584 to .1911. Most of that rise was attributed to a jump in the various computer rankings of the Bulldogs with Tech's average rising from 30th to 25th.

Louisiana Tech hosts its final home game on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. at Joe Aillet Stadium as the Bulldogs face Utah State (8-2, 4-0 WAC).
