Men DII Games This Weekend: Playoffs In The AIr

It's playoff time! Except it's not, and it is, and it's both, or neither.

The Great Midwest is in its last week before the conference playoffs and placement is everything. Tri-State is starting their playoffs, and the same with the MARC. The Tri-State has the top two teams, Kings Point and William Paterson, get a bye into the semis. The MARC does a straight semifinal.

The Northern Lights does a straight semifinal, too, and that's on this week.

Meanwhile it's business as usual in the NEWCRC, Great Lakes, Rocky Mountain, Cardinals, and Lonestar. Rugby Northeast has a week off before their playoffs start.

This week we've got five games that include two ranked teams. Included in this is 3-0 Virginia against 3-0 Queens University Charlotte, and 4-0 Boston University versus 4-0 Vermont. 

We'll be posting scores in another article this weekend, but here's the Men's DII College games for October 26 and 27, with our picks.
