  Marcus Williams Jr. ran for two touchdowns in the first quarter, including a 42-yard dash to make it 14-0, and Louisiana Tech dashed to a 24-point first-half lead and made it stand up for a 24-17 win over North Texas in the Bulldogs' Conference USA opener Saturday. J.D. Head tossed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Samuel Emilus and Jacob Barnes kicked a 21-yard field goal to make it 24-0 with more than 10 minutes left in the first half and the Louisiana Tech defense took over from there.

North Texas (1-3, 0-2) got a touchdown by DeAndre Torrey just before intermission. Ethan Mooney kicked a 33-yard field goal and Austin Aune tossed an eight-yard touchdown pass to Damon Ward Jr. late in the fourth quarter, but the Mean Green could not find the equalizing touchdown. Aaron Allen was 14 of 18 passing for 137 yards and Louisiana Tech (2-2, 1-0) managed just 81 rushing yards, led by Williams' 73 on 17 carries. Torrey carried 26 times for 119 yards to lead North Texas. - Louisiana Tech/AP College Football

Williamson's 45-yard interception returned for a touchdown in the first quarter opened the game's scoring.

  Austin Kendall threw for a touchdowns and rushed for another, Greg Garner scored three times and Louisiana Tech edged Southeastern Louisiana 45-42 on Saturday night. However, it took a fumble recovery by Cedric Woods in the final minute to secure the win. Southeast Louisiana quarterback Cole Kelley ran for 16 yards on third-and-10 from his 19 but was stripped by Ezekiel Barnett, although the first down would have been nullified by a penalty.

Garner had back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter to give the Bulldogs (1-1) 10-point leads in the shootout. The first came when Kendall threw a backwards pass to wide receiver Kyle Maxwell, who threw the ball into the end zone, where Garner hauled it in while being hit. Garner got his second rushing touchdown after the second of Kelley's three TD passes. Kelley was 44 of 59 for 453 yards with two interceptions and scored twice on the ground while leading the Lions (1-1) in rushing with 42 yards. CJ Turner had eight catches for 131 yards. The Lions had 556 total yards but 10 penalties cost them 100 yards and they had three turnovers. Kendall was 20 of 28 for 250 yards. - Louisiana Tech/AP College Football

  Not everyone is always on the same page in NFL Draft war rooms. On Friday, an uncomfortable exchange between Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and senior scout Tom Donahoe was caught on camera following the selection of Louisiana Tech defensive lineman Milton Williams. Roseman fist-bumped everyone in the room, but Donahoe was hesitant. "When we were at pick 70, there were a couple of guys that we liked on the board," Roseman told the media Friday. "We moved back a little bit to see how it would go. A couple of guys that we liked went as well. "These guys spend all year scouting these guys. You get favorites, you get guys that you feel really strongly about. We all do. That's the fun part about being in the draft room is the emotions of it." Philadelphia traded down from No. 70 to No. 73 and chose Williams in the third round to close out the second day of the draft. - Monroe news star

  The Vanderbilt football program is losing its leading rusher from last season. Running back Keyon Henry-Brooks has announced that he will enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. He is the second running back to transfer, joining Jamauri Wakefield, who entered the portal on Dec. 28, just two weeks after new coach Clark Lea was hired. Henry-Brooks will have two years of eligibility left, with the potential for a redshirt. Henry-Brooks played in six of Vanderbilt's nine games, starting in five of them, as a sophomore in 2020. He rushed 120 times for a team-high 494 yards and two touchdowns. He also tied for second on the team in receptions with 28, amassing 258 yards through the air.

  Two SEC defensive backs announced they would be transferring to the Bulldogs as Vanderbilt cornerback Elijah Hamilton and Tennessee defensive back Baylen Buchanan made announcements on Twitter. Tech picked up two players with more than 60 total games of experience, and the added bonus of the playing time in college football's top conference. Both are graduate transfers and will use their final year of eligibility in Ruston in 2021.

Both are sons of former NFL players. Elijah Hamilton's father is Ruffin Hamilton, who was a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons. Baylen Buchanan's dad is Ray Buchanan, who spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Falcons and Oakland Raiders and was a two-time Pro Bowler. Elijah Hamilton appeared in 33 games with the Commodores in three seasons and put together his best statistical season in 2020 with 24 tackles and three pass breakups. A three-star recruit out of Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Roswell, Georgia, he considered Army and Navy but ultimately signed with Vanderbilt in 2016. - Monroe News Star

  Kellton Hollins, a senior center from Lousiana, announced Monday via Twitter that he will enter the transfer portal. Hollins played in seven of the Frogs 10 games this season including one start against West Virginia. What made Hollins a standout player was not necessarily what he did on the field but what he did off of it. He was passionate about making a difference at TCU and leaving his mark on the campus which he did by heading a project where the words "END RACISM" were painted outside of TCU's football and basketball stadiums. He invited students, faculty and staff to sign their names on the mural. - Dallas Morning News
