The Ouachita Baptist University Tigers rewrote OBU football history on Saturday with their 41-20 victory over rival Henderson State University. In addition to winning the 88th Battle of the Ravine, the Tigers finished the regular season with an undefeated, untied 10-0 record for the first time in program history.
Along with claiming the Great American Conference championship outright with the win, the Tigers finished the season with a No. 1 ranking in Super Region Three of the NCAA Division II Football Championship. That means Ouachita will host a second round matchup on Saturday, Nov. 29, also a first since the Tigers have been competing in D-II.
