    Hawaii Bowl
    La Tech 48​
    Tulsa 14​
    La Tech met Tulsa half way across the world in the Hawaii Bowl. Both teams players enjoyed the sunny beaches and nice weather. But on gameday only one team would leave satisfied. La Tech moved the ball all day against Tulsa. The spread offense was no match for the Tulsa D. On his final game, Senior QB Ross Jenkins went 12 for 23 with 308 yards and 4 TDs. In the second half some lowerclassmen saw playing time. Sophomore QB Chris Cameron went 9 for 12 for 155 yards and 1 TD and Sophomore RB Tyrone Duplessis had 10 carries for 10 yards.

    Player of the Game - Heisman Trophy Winner Cruz Williams had another big game catching 12 passes for 298 yards and 3 TDs. The Redshirt Sophomore has not decided whether or not he will be back for next year.
