Iowa State Takes ACR 7s

Iowa State defeated Nebraska 20-10 to win the ACR 7s Championship Sunday.

In a tournament of close games, ISU rebounded from a 24-19 pool-play loss to Oregon and a 17-15 scare vs UTSA to edge one of the favorites, Fresno State, by two in the semis.

The other semi was close, too, as Nebraska and Oregon tied 19-19 at full time; the Cornhuskers scored to win it 24-19 in overtime.

It was a tough break for Oregon, which had gone through pool play 4-0—the only team to be unbeaten on Day One. The OT game took a lot out of the Ducks and Fresno State won 24-10 to take third.

In the chase for 5th, Western Washington handled Sacramento State 31-14 in the semi while UTSA held off Texas rivals Sam Houston State 19-10. 

WWU took the 5th-place final 14-5 over San Antonio.

SHSU took 7th from Sac State.

Fresno State flyhalf and the only DIAA player to be a Rudy Scholz nominee, Isaiah Kruse, was named tournament MVP.
