The Men’s Collegiate All Americans are almost set to fly out to Australia for a three-game tour, and there is at least one player still shaking his head at the excitement of it all.

Some changes and one major realignment mark the 2016-17 season for DIAA Men's College rugby - here's a look at the conferences and what changes we're expecting.
Notre Dame College defeated AIC 24-14 Sunday at Bowling Green University to take the Eastern DIAA semifinal and book a spot in the national final May 7 in Moraga, Calif.

This comes after an impressive 55-35 win for AIC over Delaware in the 1st round of the playoffs, a game that was difficult to prepare for.
