A couple of weeks ago saw a pair of lower level college football programs play some exhibition football in Europe. This weekend added another school to that cross-Atlantic fun with Rose-Hulman’s football team taking on a team of all-stars from Spain.

The Spanish team was no match for Rose-Hulman, a division three football program, as the Fightin’ Engineers took a 73-0 victory home as a souvenir. Rose-Hulman, a team that went 7-3 in 2013, managed to score two defensive touchdowns and a safety on special teams while pitching the shutout.

Southwestern University, another division three school in Texas, defeated a team of German players 48-7 a couple of weeks ago. On the same day Claremont-Mudd-Scripps from California was defeated by a team of all-stars from Austria, 21-14.

UCF and Penn State will open the 2014 season with a game in Ireland in week one.

    Maybe we should send high school teams over there to play. Probably same results.

    Well done Rose Hulman! An all Male school with a team full of brainiacs & a 98% job placement rate upon graduation!

    Correction, Rose Hulman went Co-ed in the 90s. It was all male back in my days (1984) Our basketball team was the first college team to play a tour of game in the USSR. However, Rose had a hard time of it, since half the team’s basketball shoes were stolen and in 1980 you could not run down to WalMart in Moscow and buy replacements.
