DI Men College 7s Nationals - Who's In

The last of what was expected to be the qualifiers for USA Rugby's DI College 7s Championships has been completed.

This weekend Arkansas won the Red River and AIC won the Armory 7s. Neither one of those results affects the field of teams at USA Nationals, because Arkansas had already qualified, and AIC is going to the CRC. (We are assuming that teams going to the CRC will not also go to USA Rugby's Championships, however, one exception is Lindenwood, which will attend both.

Here is the list of qualifiers and their winners in chronological order:
