GRR: Allegheny Conference
IUP capped off a fairly dominant season in the Allegheny with a 46-0 shutout of Kent State in the conference final on Sunday.
With the Allegheny not having too many teams able to hang with the top echelon, the playoffs was one semifinal—Kent State vs West Virginia—on Saturday for the chance to play the Crimson Hawks on Sunday.
Some teams made a few statements this week in Men's DII College Rugby.

Here's a look.
One team to watch in the Allegheny Conference may well be IUP.
The Allegheny Collegiate Conference has set its schedule for its Men's D2 and Men's Small Co0llege divisions.
The two conferences cross over occasionally, with school-supported Robert Morris and the new varsity program, Rio Grande, both small-college programs, also testing itself against some D2 teams.
The Allegheny Rugby Union has announced that it is suspending all collegiate rugby this fall.
This includes an established women's D2 conference, and a newly-formed men's D2 conference, which was set to include Wheeling University, Alderson Broaddus, WVU, IUP, and Kent State.
The region will reevluate in the New Year and will likely play some 7s and 15s in the spring.
