The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs finished the 2012 college football season with a 9-3 record. They ranked No. 1 in the country in points scored per game, averaging 51.5 points per contest on their way to playing some of the more exciting games of the season, including a 59-57 loss to Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies. The Bulldogs ranked 4th in passing yards and 18th in rushing yards, but despite a 9-3 record in a year where many teams were either bowl ineligible or banned from postseason play, Louisiana Tech is not going to play in a college football bowl game this season.
So, what exactly happened?
That all depends on who you listen to, or who you are more apt to believe.
