Men DI College Games April 8-9

Playoff time and tour time means the number of domestic college rugby games drop considerably. 

But the importance ramps up. The Varsity Cup kicks off with its first round of games. We make our picks here: Varsity Cup Round 1 - Our Picks. In addition, the DIAA playoffs kind of get started.

San Diego State and Cal Poly play in the final California Conference game. It's expected that SD State will win, but if they don't, could Cal Poly make an argument to be in that DIAA playoff group? In addition, Lindenwood and Davenport will play each other in a league game and the following week are reportedly slated to play each other in the DIA playoffs. So this week's game is going to pull double-duty. (Lindenwood is giving up a home playoff game to do this.) The BYU at Colorado State game will serve the same purpose.

The DIAA spring playoffs start. We've got our preview here. DIAA Playoffs - West Bracket and here DIAA Playoffs - East Bracket. Sunday sees the semis played. The winners coming out of this weekend play each other in the spring final. The winner of that game meets Notre Dame College in the 2016-17 final. How is Notre Dame College getting ready? Well, they play GRR #8 Indiana this weekend, so they aren't exactly taking it easy.

Check back for scores.
