GRR: Chico State
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Ranked 1st in the DIAA Pacific Western Rugby Conference, Chico State University heads down to play #2 Stanford University at Steuber Stadium in Palo Alto Saturday in a meeting of undefeated teams.
This game will likely decide who finishes in 1st in the conference.
The DIAA playoff picture is almost complete, and by Sunday afternoon we will know all.
On Saturday, Chico State defeated Nevada and UC Davis defeated UC Santa Cruz to set up the much-anticipated Pacific Western championship game between those two teams. Meanwhile, Princeton beat Penn 45-0 Friday to advance Sunday's Ivy League play-in against Brown.
So it happened that the defending DIAA national champions lost a game this past weekend.
The University of Missouri won two games over the weekend without taking the field and now Mizzou is officially the Heart of America conference champs with a 7-0 record.
Both Iowa State and Nebraska were on the schedule to play Missouri this weekend, but Iowa State forfeited some time ago and Nebraska forfeited this week, leaving Mizzou with no one to play.
