It's a full weekend of D1A action this weekend. Here's a look at what's up:

Rocky Mountain

BYU is at Colorado State in an early clash of two teams with conference hopes. We have a closer look at Colorado State, and the Rams have a ton of potential, but BYU's ability to reload and maintain has always been strong.

Mose Timoteo is back for a second season with the Colorado State Rams men's rugby program, and that much-needed stability has been helped by the longtime Eagles' connections in the game.

It’s a huge weekend in Men’s DII college rugby as most leagues get moving.

Here's a rundown:

Great Midwest

One of the toughest leagues in the division sees five games on the slate. Minnesota-Duluth played, and beat, Northern Michigan last week to open up this weekend for the All-Minnesota tournament. So now NMU has to bounce back against a tough Marquette team.

Towson opened their inaugural season in the Mid Atlantic Rugby Conference (MARC) with a trip to the University of Delaware and a nicely-taken victory.

Towson struck first when junior scrumhalfH Jake Commodari picked off an errant pass at the Delaware 10-meter-line and darted to the tryline carrying a defender to score in the corner.

The Army West Point men's rugby team managed to get by a very tough Dartmouth side 29-23 on Sunday, logging a nice victory against one of the top DIAA teams in the nation.

Army was coming off a loss to Trinity, the Dublin University team that toured the East Coast, and this game offered a chance to rebound.

It was a day of crossover non-conference games and some conference openers in DIA rugby Saturday.

On the crossovers, Trinity continued its winning ways on its tour of the USA, beating Iona 61-12 in what Iona head coach Bruce McLane called a "great learning experience for Iona."

Nandipha Dube and Cam DiGiorgio scored tries for the Gaels in the loss.

Louisville, IUPUI, and Bowling Green all won convincing victories in the opening weekend of the Mid-American Conference in Men's DIAA rugby action.

Defending USA Rugby Fall DIAA champion Bowling Green cruised by Dayton, as expected, winning 67-5. Less expected, perhaps, was IUPUI's debut in the conference, a 38-0 shutout of Cincinnati.

The NIKE Legion Selects, a high school aged touring side, warmed up with games against SoCal EIRA and the Arizona Bobcats before playing in the Great NW Challenge. Following that, the team traveled to Australia for an 11-day tour.

The Men's DII college season gets well and truly underway this weekend with four conferences in action in some form or other.

Heading the list is a Great Midwest clash between Northern Illinois and Northern Iowa, a game that will go a long way to letting us know who is a challenger in the GMW South.

Here's how this works: if you are playing for a national championship, and someone is better than you, then that other team will likely beat you.

That's the way of the sporting world. We have rules about eligibility and what type of competition you're in, sure, but this sport has far, far too many examples of "we lost but ..." excuse-mongering.

The University of Minnesota-Duluth opened up a new season in a new conference with a very impressive 65-19 defeat of Northern Michigan.
