Some teams made a few statements this week in Men's DII College Rugby.
Men's DII Scores from the Weekend of October 9
Here's a look.
In a clash between the #6 and #11-ranked DII college teams in the country, 6th-ranked Marquette put in a pretty polished performance in defeating UW-Platteville in Platteville.
Illinois State bonced back from last week's loss to beat a tough Loyola side this week in Great Midwest Conference action.
Meanwhile, Marquette won their second in a row, taking down Northern Michigan 29-17.
The Great Midwest Conference already had a shakeup after the first weekend of competition, and it's likely we'll see some more of that as the season progresses.
Marquette beating Wisconsin-Whitewater was, of course, the most notable result.
The Great Midwest Conference has confirmed its schedule for both its D2 league and its small college league.
