This is week one of Tech's 88th season. There is lots on the line but this games is nothing but a glorified scrimmage. Which is good, cause after hitting your teammates for weeks, you need to get a test against an opponent. Albeit in this case and opponent you should dismantle.
The Northwestern State (Louisiana) Demons take the fieldagainst Tech. They are brining back 22 offensive and defensive starters, most of which are Seniors and Juniors. So these guys have been playing together long enough to not be picked up by any FBS school. Congrats.
This is short and sweet. Their QB is good, completing almost 62% of his throws. Their defense is lead by Derek Rose who is a two-time All American at this level of play. And they have a ten players, some starting, who transferred to the school last year.
The Red Raiders need to focus on establishing the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and block for Doege so he can pass for 400 yards and most importantly, get some pressure on the other guys QB.
