GRR: Heart of America
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.
UC Davis is back in the national DIAA final after beating Arkansas 32-15 Sunday in the national semifinal.
This was a hugely intense game with both sides hitting hard and fighting tooth and nail.
“Last year we were too beat up by the time the playoffs came,” said Arkansas Coach Warren Fyfe. “But this year, they knew they were in a game, for sure.”
Arkansas and UC Davis are through to the DIAA semifinals after both won their quarterfinals Saturday at the UC Davis campus.
Davis defeated Sacramento State for third time this season, taking the Hornets down 38-5.
The Kansas City Jr. Blues won the Heart of America Tournament in what was a somewhat strange finish.
