GRR: Deep South
In 95-degree heat Saturday in Ruston, La. Southeastern Louisiana University won their third game of the season, defeating the Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs 41-22 at Tech’s famous “The Joe” Stadium.
This game was for the Magnolia Cup challenge trophy between the two.
Playing in the Deep South, Southeastern Louisiana could well be a Men's D2 College dark horse and showed that over the weekend with a win over the University of Houston.
Played on a very hot Saturday evening, the game was tight in the first half, but opened up for a 52-22 SLU victory.
A few years ago Spring Hill College was one of a new wave of burgeoning varsity rugby programs around the country, but that didn't last.
Ten conferences have confirmed their Men's DII College conferences, with three more to go.
Here's a rundown of what has happened so far.
