RUSTON, La. -- Brad Oestriecher made a career-best three field goals and Louisiana Tech took advantage of three Mississippi State turnovers in the third quarter in a 22-14 upset on Saturday.
The win by Tech was the first over a BCS conference squad in five years (at Michigan State in 2003) and first against an SEC team since an upset of No. 18 Alabama at Tuscaloosa in 1999.
The last time a current member of the SEC played in Ruston was 1908 when visitor LSU beat Tech 22-0.
Mississippi State (0-1) held a 14-9 lead at halftime, but had three turnovers in the third quarter.
Running back Patrick Jackson threw a first-half interception on a trick play, but also scored twice, including a 6-yard scamper to give Tech a 16-14 the lead for good midway through the third quarter.
Oestriecher made field goals from 48, 28 and 50 yards away for Tech. Jackson ran for 62 yards on 17 carries.
