Lastly, in its first MLR home exhibition match, the Glendale Raptors upended NOLA Gold, 38-14.

St. Mary’s continued to prove it is the best team in the country with a 37-29 win against BYU in Provo, Utah. The victory completes a sweep of its home and away series versus the Cougars. In the Mid-South, Life and Lindenwood kept chugging along dispatching Arkansas State and Davenport with little resistance.
