HOUSTON -- Colby Cameron threw for three touchdowns, Kevin Ting ran for three and Louisiana Tech overcame 580 yards passing by David Piland to defeat Houston 56-49 Saturday night.

The two explosive teams combined for 1,291 yards of offense in a game that lasted 4 hours and 8 minutes and wasn t secured until Houston (0-2) failed on an onside kick attempt with 35 seconds remaining.

Cameron had touchdown passes of 6, 8 and 14 yards while completing 34 of 52 passes for 353 yards; Ting rushed for 112 yards, including TDs of 13, 9 and 59 yards; and Kenneth Dixon added 90 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Bulldogs, who were playing their first game after their opener against Texas A&M was postponed last week due to Hurricane Isaac.

Louisiana Tech needed all of that to offset Piland, who completed 53 of 77 passes for 580 yards and four touchdowns.
