Athletics Fall 2015

Third Consecutive Learfield Cup

OBU received its third consecutive Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup as the best overall athletics program in the NAIA this summer during the 2015 National Association of College Directors of Athletics Convention.

The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the NACDA and USA Today.

“It’s very gratifying to get this third Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup in our final year of the NAIA,” said OBU Director of Athletics Robert Davenport. “Our coaches overcame a lot of new wrinkles in this year of transition and our student-athletes again posted successful seasons while carrying a grade point average over 3.0 as a department. That determination will serve us well in NCAA Division II and the Great American Conference.”
