Louisiana Tech vs. Houston Baptist updates: Live NCAA Football game scores, results for Saturday

The Houston Baptist Huskies have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They are on the road again on Saturday and play against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 26 at Joe Aillet Stadium. The Huskies are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one.

Houston Baptist was hampered by 110 penalty yards against the Texas Tech Red Raiders two weeks ago. It was close but no cigar for Houston Baptist as they fell 35-33 to Texas Tech. QB Bailey Zappe put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for four TDs and 567 yards on 49 attempts. Zappe’s 75-yard touchdown toss to WR Josh Sterns in the fourth quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
