The brand-new Chesapeake Rugby Conference opened up for business this weekend with three games.
The newly-formed Chesapeake Conference has finalized its schedule for the fall of 2016.
James Madison University took care of business in the DIAA Round of 16 Saturday, beating Harvard 49-16 to move on to the quarterfinal/semifinal weekend at Bowling Green next week.
It's kind of hard to pin down James Madison University, as the program bounces between 7s and 15s this season, but somehow we have to do it, and somehow the players have to do it, too.
The University of Utah pulled off something of an upset, beating AIC in the semifinals of the LVI's CRC Qualifier to make the final in the stadium later today.
The Utes starved AIC of possession brilliantly and won 12-5.
The quarterfinals for the Men's College 7s bracket at the Las Vegas Invitational, and we know the four teams who will compete in the semis Saturday, looking for a chance to play in the main stadium later that day.
James Madison upset St. Joseph’s 33-13 to secure a place in the Keystone Conference final on Sunday at Shippensburg University.
The game was much closer than the score might indicate, with St. Joe’s actually leading 13-12 with about 16 minutes to go. It was then that JMU went over for the go-ahead try.
The Keystone Conference has gone pretty much according to the form sheet with only one or two little hiccups this season, and now with the playoffs coming a few potential upsets rear their heads.
Eight of the ten Keystone teams are in the quarterfinals, and while the top two from each division would have to be favored, this is a perfect time for someone to slip up.
The University of Pittsburgh scored two tries in the final five minutes to come back to beat James Madison 31-27 in a crucial Keystone West matchup.
JMU, having moved up to DIAA from DII, was undefeated going into this game, as was Pitt.
Notre Dame College continues the programs independent DIAA schedule with a game against another team that has moved up from DII, James Madison.
