Goff Rugby Report DIA Rankings Week 5

This past weekend we brought back our predictions for each week's games.

This is always a bit of a crapshoot, especially when not a lot of teams have common opponents. Of the 16 games played, we were right on 11 and wrong on five. That's not a great percentage. We were right on the margin of victory (or at least in the neighborhood) on seven.

So the big upsets include Northeastern over Boston College, Illinois over Wisconsin, Notre Dame College over Army, Rhode Island over Connecticut, and Brockport over Albany (although that was a game that we knew could have gone either way).

OK, so, humbled, we soldier on. This is how we're voting in the official D1A rankings this week. This is our Top 50 of the 68 teams involved.
