Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson caught nine passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 58-44 loss to Western Kentucky.

Another day, another dollar. Henderson finishes the regular season toting a sensational 72-1411-17 line and two more running scores -- and he missed a game to injury along the way. The 8-5 Bulldogs await their bowl assignment.
Dec 3 - 4:08 PM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins was thoroughly disappointing in Friday's 39-24 loss to Southern Miss, throwing three interceptions and failing to toss a scoring pass.

Higgins had thrown at least two touchdown passes in each of his first 11 games, but no such luck on Black Friday. No such luck and then some. Higgins entered this contest having thrown just four interceptions all year long and then proceeded to fall one pick short of matching that total. Despite this dismal performance, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound gunslinger has been magnificent on the whole this season, throwing for 3,706 yards with a 34/7 TD/INT ratio.

Louisiana Tech WR Trent Taylor has received an invitation to attend the Senior Bowl.

The volume that Taylor has put together over his collegiate career is astonishing, including over 200 receptions, 19 touchdowns and over 2,500 yards over the last two seasons. 2016 is turning into Taylor's most productive. The receiver does stand at just 5-foot-8, so his evaluation will be pigeonholed to the slot.
Nov 21 - 8:56 AM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins completed 17-of-26 passes for 293 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 63-35 win over UTSA.

Yawn. This was Higgins' fifth game with at least four touchdown passes and his seventh with at least three touchdown passes. For the season as a whole, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound redshirt senior has thrown for 3,460 yards while turning up for a beautiful 34/4 TD/INT ratio over 10 games.
Nov 12 - 9:01 PM

Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson caught eight passes for 133 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-24 win over North Texas.

Henderson hauled in scoring passes of 52, 10, 12 and nine yards, finding the end zone in all four quarters as he helped Louisiana Tech improve to 7-3. After losing three of their first four contests to open the season, the Bulldogs have ripped off a six-game winning streak. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 194-pound Henderson is massaging a beautiful 59-1168-15 receiving line.
Nov 5 - 10:00 PM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins completed 18-of-30 passes for 253 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 45-24 win over North Texas.

In a fine bit of symmetry, Higgins threw one touchdown pass in each quarter. All four of them went to wideout Carlos Henderson. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound gunslinger has now logged at least four scoring passes in four of nine games. For the season as a whole, he has thrown for 3,167 yards with a 30/4 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 5 - 9:31 PM

Louisiana Tech junior WR Marcus Gaines could potentially miss the remainder of the 2016 regular season due to a broken wrist.

Gaines broke his wrist in a blowout win over UMass on October 15. Said HC Skip Holtz, "It's the bone and the ligaments and how long it takes to heal. Once the bone heals it's going to be how stiff the hand is. We'll have to see. Normally, it's four-to-six weeks." On the short end of that timetable, the 5-foot-6, 156-pound junior would be able to return against UTSA next weekend. The longer possibility could potentially keep him out of action until the season-finale against Southern Miss on November 25, if that. In five games this season, Gaines has caught six passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.
Nov 4 - 3:45 PM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 130 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 61-16 win over Rice.

Higgins has made headlines with multiple brilliant passing performances this season, but on Saturday, he was relatively quiet through the air. And loud as a rampaging werewolf on the ground. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound redshirt senior entered the game having rushed for a modest 169 yards in seven games. Fantasy owners can't realistically expect rushing performances like Saturday's on the regular, but given that he has now thrown for 2,914 yards with a 26/3 TD/INT ratio, any groundwork merely serves as the cherry on top of a statistically sugary sundae.
Oct 29 - 10:40 PM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins was named the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose National Player of the Week.

Higgins earns the honor thanks to his shredding of UMass on Saturday. In that one, the redshirt senior gunslinger completed 26-of-33 passes for 484 yards, five touchdowns and an interception. That marked his second straight game of at least 450 yards passing and five touchdowns. There is no hotter fantasy option out there these days. For the season as a whole, the 6-foot-1, 196-pounder has thrown for 2,353 yards (67.5% completions) with a mouthwatering 22/3 TD/INT ratio.

Louisiana Tech sophomore RB Jaqwis Dancy has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Beat writer Sean Isabella notes there is an 80 percent survival rate for the illness. Dancy has dealt with an ankle injury early this season, which has sidelined him. After complaining about a lymph node, Dancy was evaluated and the tests came back positive. He is starting a treatment program on Monday.
Oct 18 - 8:47 AM

Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson hauled in 12 passes for 326 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 56-28 win over UMass.

The Bulldogs and QB Ryan Higgins mercilessly assaulted the overmatched Minuteman secondary throughout, piling up 491 passing yards. Henderson has been unstoppable for the past two weeks, catching 20 balls for 558 yards and eight scores. He's already exceeded career-highs in receptions, yards and scores.
Oct 15 - 7:05 PM

According to Pro Football Focus, Louisiana Tech senior WR Trent Taylor is No. 1 in the nation with 456 yards after the catch.

He added 73 yards after the catch Thursday night against Western Kentucky. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound slot dynamo recorded 99 catches for 1,282 yards and nine touchdowns last season and already has an eye-popping 66-861-8 line in the early going this fall.
Oct 12 - 2:59 PM

Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson hauled in eight passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 55-52 win over Western Kentucky.

He had five catches for 190 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. Western Kentucky has one of the nation's 10 worst secondaries, and Tech punished them for it this evening. Henderson was named to the Biletnikoff Award Preseason Watch List over the summer after piling up 774 yards and five scores on 36 receptions as a sophomore last year.
Oct 7 - 12:10 AM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins completed 33-of-45 passes for 454 and five touchdowns in Thursday's 55-52 win over Western Kentucky.

He also ran for 31 yards. Higgins has now thrown for over 400 yards in three of his five games and over 300 in four of five. He had over 500 in one of them. Higgins owns a breathtaking 13/0 TD/INT rate over his last four.
Oct 6 - 11:53 PM

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins completed 36-of-59 passes for 504 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 38-34 loss to Middle Tennessee.

Higgins and the Bulldogs held a 27-17 lead after three quarters, but Middle Tennessee put on a 21-7 offensive blitz through to the end of the game to secure the victory. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound Higgins has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of his three games played. He has also tossed at least three touchdown passes in each of those games.
