The Mid-American Conference got going this weekend with favored teams victorious.
As has been the case throughout the country, questions remain about which teams can get the numbers to compete. The MAC has started well in that regard with teams able to make their commitments.
The University of Louisville played its first competitive game of the season, and the first in over 400 days, this weekend and came away with a victory over IUPUI.
Fielding 10 freshmen, Louisville overcame some first-game jitters and emerged 26-23 victors.
Just as some college rugby teams are getting back into competition, others are slowing down their activity.
There was a scary moment during the Mid-American Conference 3rd-4th game on Sunday when Louisville Head Coach Emil Walton collapsed while patrolling the sideline.
Walton was taken to the hospital and at first no one knew what had happened or if he will be OK.
Both Louisville and IUPUI teams gathered on the field during the stop in action.
Louisville secured a spot in the Mid-American Conference playoffs after upsetting Bowling Green 27-18 Saturday.
Bowling Green went into the game the defending USA fall DIAA champs, and ranked #7 by Goff Rugby Report. But Louisville, ranked #21, has been playing some solid rugby, and despite a 40-0 loss to Western Michigan, had every expectation of knocking off the Falcons.
