With his compact delivery, Cameron fired passes all over the field, especially showing zip and velocity on out-routes. Cameron is more of a touch passer, but through one practice he didn't look out of place with the big size, big-armed quarterbacks. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/03/12 - Louisiana Tech, with a 9-3 record and the highest scoring team in the country, isn't going to a bowl game. La Tech athletic director Bruce Van De Velde told The Associated Press that Independence Bowl organizers offered a spot in their game on Saturday afternoon, but the Bulldogs had other possible options still available to them. Van De Velde said he asked the Independence Bowl for more time to make a decision, but was told by game organizers that they couldn't wait. ''Nobody turned a bowl bid down,'' he said. ''We asked for more time to vet two other opportunities that we had that we felt good about.''
Van De Velde said he told the Independence Bowl organizers: ''Anybody you are going to get to replace us will be there on Sunday. Just give us time to evaluate these opportunities.'' The Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La., had already invited Louisiana-Monroe from the Sun Belt Conference. Independence Bowl chairman Jack Andres said organizers had to set a deadline for Louisiana Tech. They were concerned if they waited they would be stuck with a team that was barely bowl eligible and too far away from Shreveport to bring many fans to the game. ''We had to make some decisions to get somebody in there. We've got sponsors, hotels. There's a lot of money riding on this,'' he said. ''Before we made another deal we called them back. - AP Sports
