WKU gets 3rd win of season, beats Louisiana Tech 30-15
RUSTON, La. (AP) D'Andre Ferby scored a pair of touchdowns and Western Kentucky jumped on Louisiana Tech early and made it hold up for a 30-15 win on Saturday.
Western Kentucky (3-9, 2-6 Conference USA) took the opening drive 87 yards in 11 plays and scored on Lucky Jackson's 18-yard touchdown run. On the Bulldogs' ensuing drive, Devon Key intercepted J'Mar Smith on the first play and the Hilltoppers had the ball at Louisiana Tech's 33.
The Hilltoppers ran off 10 plays with the short field and made it 14-0 when Steven Duncan completed a 10-yard pass to Mik'Quan Deane. Early in the second, WKU posted a safety, and after taking the ball, Ferby went in from a yard out and it was 23-0. Israel Tucker scored Louisiana Tech's (7-5, 5-3) only touchdown with a 19-yard run with 1:43 before halftime.
Smith threw for 280 yards for the Bulldogs before leaving the game late with an apparent injury.
