UTEP intercepts Austin Kendall three times, limits La Tech to 92 yards rushing

Louisiana Tech football couldn’t come up with an answer to UTEP’s strong defense  in a 19-3 loss Saturday night in El Paso, Texas.

“It was probably one of our worst performances offensively we’ve had in a long time,” La Tech coach Skip Holtz said. “We were very good on third down – we struggled. On defense, I thought the front seven played their tails off. But offensively it was a poor effort, and poor coaching on my part. I give UTEP a lot of credit.”

Here are our takeaways from the Bulldogs’ loss.

UTEP hit the ground running

The Miners (6-1, 3-0 Conference USA) didn’t waste any time putting up points on the board. UTEP was able score on both of their opening drives. The Bulldogs (2-4, 1-1) struggled to contain Miners freshman running back Deion Hankins. Hankins recorded two touchdowns in the first quarter and easily found gaps in the defense.
