College Bowl Series News
One of the ramifications of what’s going on with college rugby during USA Rugby’s reorganization is that we’re resetting priorities.
You know that Goff Rugby Report has long been an advocate of bowl games as a nice way to wrap up the season, and now that concept has taken hold throughout the college game, and for a number of reasons.

The Bowl Series kicked off Saturday with three very intriguing challenge matches held at Iona College.
The game of the day may well have been the opening game, as hosts Iona faced off with ECRC champs AIC. Iona has shown they don’t really like to back down from any opponents, and the Gaels brought an aggressive, hard-charging defense to the contest.
