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.
The Mid-Atlantic is coming down to the final three weeks before the playoffs and five teams are still strongly in the hunt for a conference title.
Western Michigan defeated Bowling Green, Louisville rebounded from last week’s loss, and Cincinnati made it three in a row as the top of the MAC tightened up.
Western Michigan edged Bowling Green 24-17 in a game that lived up to the intense rivalry between these two teams.
WMU Head Coach chalked it all up to the early losses to Notre Dame College and Indiana.
