HAMMOND---Though the Southeastern Louisiana football team’s upset bid at Ole Miss fell just short, the Lions remained ranked in both the latest STATS FCS and AFCA Coaches polls on Monday.

Southeastern (1-1) went into the fourth quarter trailing, 34-29, to the Rebels last Saturday. Ole Miss clinched the game with a pair of fourth-quarter field goals to hold off the Lion rally.

The Lions are up to No. 21 in the STATS FCS poll. SLU is one of three Southland schools in the top 25, along with No. 13 Nicholls and No. 14 Central Arkansas. League foes McNeese, Sam Houston State, Lamar, Houston Baptist and UIW are all receiving votes.

Southeastern moved up a spot to No. 23 in the AFCA Coaches poll. No. 9 Nicholls and No. 12 UCA also represent the league, while Southland schools Sam Houston State, HBU and McNeese are receiving votes.

Up Next
Southeastern will return home to open Southland Conference play on Saturday, Sept. 21, hosting Lamar at 7 p.m. in Strawberry Stadium. The game will air on ESPN+. It also can be heard on the Southeastern Sports Radio Network (KSLU-FM (90.9), Kajun 107.1 FM, The Highway 104.7 FM and The Boss 103.7 FM/1400 AM WFPR), online at and via the Radio FX and TuneIn Radio apps.

The SLU-Lamar game will also double as the annual Hall of Fame Game. The 2019 Southeastern Athletics Hall of Fame class of Bryan Bennett (football), Stefan Lopez (baseball), Karin Smith Gadberry (softball) and Simmie Yarborough (football) will be inducted in a private ceremony earlier in the day and recognized at halftime of the Lions-Cardinals contest.

It will also be Solid Gold Saturday in Strawberry Stadium. Fans are encouraged to wear gold and the first 500 fans will receive free gold t-shirts courtesy of McDonald’s and Southeastern Athletics.

The annual Family Day promotion in conjunction with The Office of Student Engagement will happen before the game with exclusive perks. Visit for more Family Day information.
