College Rugby Association of America Featured Games

BYU at Lindenwood sees the top team in the Rocky Mountain Conference and the top team in the Midwest Rugby Conference. It's more than that, of course, as both of these teams are D1A national championship contenders, this game is a closer look at who might be at the top of the rankings.

Currently 5-0, BYU has beaten Air Force, Utah Valley, Utah State, Colorado State, and Colorado. They just beat Colorado 94-10 with four tries from Samiuela Mounga and two each from Zeb Mendenhall and John Campbell. Lindenwood is 6-0 in first-side 15s games, beating Principia, Southern Nazarene, McKendree, Iowa Central, Adrian, and, last week, Davenport.

Big-Game Feel in Lindenwood-Davenport Collision

So this will be a massive clash.

Kickoff November 10, 2PM EST. Watch Here on The Rugby Network>>

Navy at Army is the culmination of the Commander-in-Chief Trophy series played between West Point, the Naval Academy, and the US Air Force Academy. Both Army and Navy ave beaten Air Force, with Army having to slog one out in Glendale last week. For the most part Navy has put themselves in the position of favorite with a 10-1 record and a clinching of the Rugby East. Their lone loss was to Trinity College out of Dublin University, which also beat Army. The West Point Black Knights are 3-4-1, including the Trinity loss, having dropped decisions to Kutztown, Life, and St. Bonaventure. But this is Army vs Navy at West Point, so throw out the form book.

Kickoff November 10, 6PM EST. Watch Here on The Rugby Network>>

Arkansas State at Davenport is a non-conference match between two teams that know each other well. Both teams are pushing to tighten their grip on a Top 10 ranking. Davenport is coming off a 24-20 loss to Lindenwood but has logged wins over Iowa Central CC, Indiana, Adrian, and McKendree. Arkansas State has been building their season slowly but has won convincingly over Iowa Central, Adrian, and Texas A&M.

Your fearless Editor Alex Goff will be doing play-by-play on this Saturday clash.
