500 OK for Mid-South Teams
Colleges - Men's DI College

The Mid-South Division of the CPD is done with Life winning big over Oklahoma 90-10, Notre Dame defeating Tennessee 35-5, and LSU edging Texas A&M 16-10.

The top two teams had already been decided before this weekend, but there was still plenty to play for. Oklahoma wanted their first win of the season (didn't happen). And LSU, Notre Dame, A&M and Tennessee were all playing for reach 3-3.

"Finishing the season at .500 is very important," said Notre Dame Head Coach Sean O'Leary. "We know we're not making the playoffs, but you want something to point to, so yes, it's something the players want and we want."

O'Leary said his team has grown and matured over this inaugural College Premier Division.

I remember after we got smacked by Life and Arkansas State, Andy Mullen comes up to me and says, 'coach, this is the best thing we have done. It shows us where we want to be.'"

Certainly Mullen learned something from that, as the center-turned flanker has had an outstanding season, leading the team as a tackler and earning multiple man of the match awards.

As a team, Notre Dame improved to 3-3 with the victory over Tennessee, while LSU also improved to 3-3 in the final match.

Notre Dame, by virtue of beating LSU earlier in the season, takes 3rd in the Mid-South, and LSU is 4th.
