Men D1A-Level Rankings Week 7

Northeast keeps moving up. @CoolRugbyPhotos.

So we delayed our rankings of D1A-level teams because the official D1A rankings came out this week and we were waiting for them.

Seemed only reasonable as we vote in that ranking. Below is the ranking that includes the current D1A teams plus the Liberty teams, which were in D1A before moving to NCR, and are eager to be ranked against this top level, so that's where we rank them.

Indiana had a chance to move up but beating Michigan State 10-0 (yes, we know, mud) wasn't enough while BYU recorded two massive shutouts over the weekend.

Colorado State moves up after beating Colorado, which was ranked higher. And of course Texas comes into the Red River with a big win over Oklahoma, a win that was pretty clear. The Longhorns jump in at #30.

Liberty teams that move up include Iona, Syracuse, and Northeastern, whose 50-20 win over BC was impressive.

(Also - forgot to add this in. As positive as beating Army is for Dartmouth, this was not the regular Army lineup. Now, we somtimes don't care about that, and sometimes we do, just the shake it up. Here, what we do is leave Army be ... for now. They've got Kutztown, Navy, Air Force, and Lindenwood, so if they are stumbling, we;ll see it.)
