GRR: Southeastern Louisiana
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.
We are enjoying seeing a few upstart Men's D2 College teams this season which is gratifying to us at Goff Rugby Report World Headquarters because it gives us something to talk about on the daily 90-minute bullet train ride from home to HQ.
Shaking up expectations is good for the competition as a whole.
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.
