RUSTON, La. -- 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.
Then, near the midpoint of the fourth quarter, Louisiana Tech's Teddy Veal muffed a punt return that gave UTSA the ball at the 11 trailing 13-6. But Amik Robertson intercepted Sturm's pass into the end zone on the next play.
Tyrell Clay had 50 yards rushing on 17 carries for UTSA, which was held to 201 total yards.
