This Saturday The University of Louisiana Lafayette will look to redeem their only loss of the season when they take on the University of Louisiana Tech for the Deep South Conference Championship.
The last time the two teams met, LA Tech was able to pull off a victory and won 25-22 in a game where ULL was the favorite.
LA Tech has done a complete 360 since last season. They shocked the conference this semester and no one expected them to be 1st in the conference. 8-man Will Crawford and center Aaron Gootzeit have been key players for the Bulldogs this season. The boasts a skilled and quick back line but can go to their pack when necessary.
ULL returns to the conference championship for the second year in a row and look to defend their championship. Gerardo Abascal, a Guatemala national player, is set on leading his team to a second championship. Abascal heads teh back line at fly-half and is dangerous when the ball gets into his hands.
ULL has the advantage in the back line so LA Tech needs to hit them in the pack to find their way across the try line. It’s hard to beat a team twice. ULL over LA Tech 21-18.
