DIA Top 20 Unveiled

USA Rugby's DIA Rugby unveiled their DIA Top 20 Thursday.

The rankings are handled in a new way this year, with voting coming from 12 different people. The commissioners of the six DIA conferences voted, as did DIA Commissioner Kevin Battle, and USA Rugby's Collegiate Director Rich Cortez. In addition, Goff Rugby Report Editor Alex Goff, DIA reporter Alex Solomon of USA Rugby, Pat Clifton from Rugby Today, and Curtis Reed of This is American Rugby also voted. (Note, earlier we didn't have Pat Clifton listed but he assures us he voted so he's listed now.)

The results were quantified and, no surprise, St. Mary's took the #1 spot, with 2014 runners up Life taking #2.

It was a much more difficult task to rank the rest, but here it is:
