RUSTON, La. (AP) Boston Scott had 20 carries for 138 yards and a touchdown on Saturday night to help Louisiana Tech become bowl eligible with a 20-6 win over UT San Antonio.
Scott covered most of the ground on an eight-play, 80-yard drive and capped it with a 35-yard run to make it 20-6 with 2:23 left. The Bulldogs' Darryl Lewis intercepted Dalton Sturm's pass four plays later to secure the win.
The Louisiana Tech (6-6, 4-4 Conference USA) defense twice came up with big stops deep in its own territory to cover for what could have been two costly second-half turnovers. Early in the second half, Nate Gaines' interception of J'Mar Smith's pass set up UTSA (6-5, 3-5) at the Bulldogs 13. But the Roadrunners were held to a field goal after getting a first-and-goal from the 1.
