Men D1A-Level Rankings Week 5

Army is pushing for a higher place. Adam Smith photo.

The rankings for the D1A teams and the teams in NCR who used to be D1A changed a little bit this week.

Notable for us was that Nazareth beat Binghamton, and that confirmed that Nazareth is pretty strong, and forced us to take another look at SUNY Oswego, which had suffered a last-second loss to Nazareth the week before. Did Oswego back that performance up? Yes, they beat Brockport. So Oswego comes in just behind Nazareth.


Recruit the next generation of college players at Next Phase Rugby. Or ... be that next generation and find the right college for you. All at Next Phase Rugby.


Penn State nudges ahead of Kutztown by virtue of winning that matchup, and we also bump up Indiana because they not only beat a ranked team, they did so by a lot. Colorado inches up while Utah Valley was brought back to earth a bit by BYU.

For the most part, the teams drifting to the lower reaches just haven't played.
