GRR: Indiana University
It's not too early to look at the DIA playoff scenarios, and in fact we're almost at a point where the playoff teams could be mostly confirmed.
Here's the rundown:
Rugby East. Penn State won the Rugby East and will go to the Varsity Cup instead. The rest of the teams in Rugby East are playing 7s or the Varsity Cup, so we won't see a Rugby East team in the playoffs at all.
Indiana continued its domination of the Big Ten, taking the program’s second conference title in as many years.
Indiana University won the team's second-straight Big Ten Universities Conference title, hammering Ohio State University 72-19 Saturday in the championship game.
You could call it a meteoric rise, but like a lot of meteoric rises, it took a long time and a lot of effort.
Indiana finished the Big Ten season undefeated, while Ohio State claimed 2nd with a win over Michigan Saturday.
IU defeated Wisconsin in what was far and away their closest Big Ten game of the season. Sparked by their experienced and talented backline, IU took an early lead, and held a 27-10 advantage at halftime. Wisconsin scored late, but couldn't close the gap further.
