Saturday February 10th Long Beach took on LMU. Many alumni were on hand to see the team wear their throwback replica jerseys from the 80's and 90's. LMU was a very good tackling team and never gave up, however the Long Beach offense was relentless and controlled the tempo of the game. In the end Long Beach finished their second game of the season with another shut out 71-0.
