LSU vs. Loyola @New Orleans, LA
Time: 5:30pm
Location: Harrell Stadium, 2202 Leonidas Street, New Orleans, LA

This is a match up that will face our two top Collegiate Rugby teams in Louisiana. We have LSU ranked #1 and Loyola ranked #2 in our Louisiana Collegiate Rugby Ranking. Even though this is a friendly match, both teams carry similar backgrounds in how they have built their teams. Sourcing most of their players from the same New Orleans high school rugby system. Some of these players played together or against each other in high school. This should be a great match up to watch.

Troy (5-0)  vs. UL-Lafayette (4-0)
Time: 2:00pm
Location: 422 Colisieum Rd, Lafayette, LA 70506

This is a match up of the top teams in the Deep South Conference Union. Both teams come into the season unbeaten. ULL is our third ranked collegiate team on our Louisiana Collegiate Rugby Rankings. They have played phenomenal against tough teams such as SpringHill and Louisiana Tech. ULL has been defending their Deep South Rugby Union championship title consistently all season. Troy University is coming in after a tough 17-10 win over SpringHill. This will be a great match up of the unbeaten’s.

Springhill (1-2) vs. Louisiana Tech (2-2)
Time: 1:00pm
Location: 4000 Dauphin Street , Mobile, Alabama 36608

Louisiana Tech is 2-2 coming off a 31-13 loss against UL-Lafayette, and Springhill is 1-2 coming off a 17-10 loss to Troy University. Both teams have had their struggles over the season, but have shown to have talented squads. This game will be played in Mobile, AL. We expect these two teams to be able to give a great battle as they are fighting for third place in the Deep South Rugby Union.

Tulane (1-2)  vs. University of Southern Mississippi (0-4)
Time: TBD
Location: Tulane University

Tulane picked up their first win last week against University of South Alabama with a score of 34-19. University of Southern Mississippi has yet to get a win for the year. Neither teams have been very good this year. They have struggled with numbers when they have traveled. Regardless, both teams have played with a tremendous amount of heart where ever they have played. Even though this match might not have any rating implications on the conference, but this will be a showing of two tough teams that play to the end.
