Furman and UNC-Wilmington lead the Southern Rugby Conference after both won games against former DI opposition.

Furman slammed Wake Forest 96-0 and UNCW defeated UNC- Chapel Hill 47-21 in a game that was close for about half the time. The Southern Conference is starting to split up between the top teams and the not-so-tops. Of the 21 games so far in the conference, more than half - 12 - have been decided by 40 points or more, with three seeing the victors scoring for more than 100 points. Eight of the games have been shutouts.

Furman is now 3-0 and UNCW is now 4-0. Also 3-0 is UNC-Charlotte, which score over 100 against UNC-Greensboro, and Appalachian State which beat Western Carolina 28-0. Charlotte and Appalachian State face off Saturday in a game that could mean much come playoff time.
