(update) RUMBLINGS: Coming off a 7-6 season that was capped by a satisfying 51-10 bashing of SMU in the Frisco Bowl, Tech was picked to finish second in the Conference USA West Division behind North Texas but had to hang on to squeak out a season-opening win over South Alabama.

ON THE REBELS OFFENSE

(update) Smith makes the Tech offense go, helping the Bulldogs pile up 613 yards in their rout of Southern. Dancy rushed for 144 yards and a pair of TDs against South Alabama and Veal, a Tulane transfer, is a Biletnikoff Award candidate.

ON THE REBELS DEFENSE

(update) Ferguson, a former West Feliciana High School star, is the unquestioned leader of Tech’s defense as a candidate for the Bednarik and Nagurski awards. Robertson, a Thorpe Award nominee who had four interceptions in 2017, leads the secondary along with Jackson.
