Smoke looking to catch fire against Nebraska football
It’s entirely possible that the Nebraska football team can continue to have a ton of success against a team’s rushing attack. After all, worse teams than the Huskers have slowed down LaTech’s run game.
But one player that few teams have been able to stop over the course of his career is going to be looking to put together a career game against the Cornhuskers. Smoke Harris is the Bulldog’s go to player through the air, despite the fact that he has more in common with Billy Kemp IV than any big play receiver in college football.
Harris stands just 5-foot-7, but he has a bigger stature than anyone else on Louisiana Tech. He leads the team by a wide margin this year with 24 catches for 288 yards and 3 touchdowns.
His best game of the year was the season opener, when he caught 11 passes for 155 yards but he also had a good game last week against North Texas when he hauled in 4 passes for 77 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about Smoke Harris is that he always gets better as the game goes along. He has only two catches for 0 yards in the first quarter this season. That means that even if Nebraska football holds him down from the beginning, it can’t afford to let up.
