Four teams are left in the Men's DIAA College playoffs after Saturday's results; here's a rundown:
Eastern Kentucky University hosts half of the DIAA playoff bracket, and a very, very difficult half it is.
Bowling Green plays Mount Saint Mary’s, while James Madison plays Lindenwood-Belleville in what most would say is the tougher, one through four, half of the eight-team fall playoffs.
USA Rugby has released the Men's College DIAA fall playoff bracket, after some time negotiating and working with various issues within the conferences.
Eight teams will participate, and seeds are as follows:
1. Notre Dame College - Notre Dame College Over Lindenwood-Belleville

James Madison is continuing the team's torrid run after their close loss to Mount Saint Mary's, following up on last week's 66-0 shutout of Salisbury with a 41-22 defeat of Maryland Saturday.
