LR FOOTBALL TEAM HAS STANDOUT SEASON

Under first-year and South Athletic Conference Coach of the Year Drew Cronic, the LR football team had one of the most successful seasons in program history, finishing the season with a 12-2 record and advancing to the NCAA Super Region 2 Regional Final. The Bears came within one win of a trip to the national semifinal game and were one of eight teams left playing. The 12 wins this season represent the second-most in program history.

The Bears went undefeated at home, winning all seven games inside Moretz Stadium. In their final home game of the season, LR pulled out a 21-17 win against rival Wingate in the second round of the NCAA playoffs. The Bears won the game with 45 seconds to play on a trick play to stun the Bulldogs.

Powering the Bears was their offense, ranked as one of the most explosive in the nation. The Bears finished the year ranked ninth in Division II in scoring offense with 41 points per game and ranked No. 12 in the nation in rushing offense at 268.1 yards per game. 

The season ended with a 62-21 loss at Valdosta State in the NCAA regional final. Valdosta State went on to win the Division II championship on Dec. 15, defeating Ferris State 49 - 47.
