DIA Rugby News
West Point can secure 1st in the Rugby Easy, and a potential date with Life University at the ACRC Bowl Weekend in Charlotte, NC, with a victory over Wheeling Jesuit.
Army is ranked #1 in the ACRC and #6 by Goff Rugby Report, while Wheeling Jesuit is ranked #20 among all DI programs by GRR.
It’s a strange journey to the Big Ten Universities championship game as the team without any losses, Indiana, has to stay home.
One of the big ideas behind the ACRC affiliation of conferences is to set up Bowl Games rather than a championship tournament.
This, say supporters of the idea, makes life easier in that a) the top team is probably known anyway; b) knowing where you’re going means you can plan more in advance; c) it allows conference play to go further into November.
Kutztown University bounced back from last week's loss to Army to defeat St. Bonavanture 72-17 Saturday in Rugby East Conference play.
With Army playing a non-conference game against Air Force (which they won), Kutztown jumps back into 1st place. But Army still has a game to play while the Golden Bears are done.
