But you can probably expect a little more offense when the Bearcats play host to the Lions at 7 p.m. at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
Ouachita enters the game at 4-2 while Ruston is 3-2.
“The jamboree was pretty basic as both teams just wanted to get a look at players,” said RHS head coach Jerrod Baugh. “Nobody tried to do anything fancy. You save that for the regular season.”
