HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

UNO, Nicholls state, and Southeastern are all in the hunt for the conference title. Right now, the Colonels lead the Southland, but the Lions are hot on their heels.

SLU is just a half-game back in the standings, and they'll close the season against Nicholls. So the message in Hammond these days is keep pushing.

"They know what the deal is. They understand where we are, and what can be done, and what has to be done in order for us to accomplish our goals<' said SLU Head Coach Jay Ladner. "We're certainly excited about playing well this time of year, but we can't look back. We have to continue to look forward. Each time you win a game, the next one just becomes that much more important."

    The college football season starts in less than a 100 days, but Vegas already is weighing in on how the 2018 season  will play out. College football win totals from Vegas are out. #LSU over/under on wins in 7. I say they get more than 7. #Tulane is at 5.5 wins, I say the Wave get 6. Least shocking, they have #Alabama at 11 wins. The Tide will be in contention for a national title with Tua at QB. pic.twitter.com/rqCcr7wC3H — Garland Gillen (@garlandgillen) May 27, 2018 ...more>>
