Notre Dame College is waiting to find out who the Falcons will play for the DIAA national title this coming May, and there's still a lot of rugby to be played before that becomes clear.
However ... it doesn't hurt to make a few guesses and assumptions. Here's how the playoffs look for DIAA in the spring:
Western Washington as much as clinched 1st in the Northwest Collegiate Rugby Conference Saturday with a 62-7 defeat of their closest rivals, University of Washington.
The NCRC has a big weekend coming, after an intriguing set of games on Saturday.
The less said about Western Washington's 25-try, 159-0 shutout of Eastern Washington the better. To keep it short, WWU is better than EWU, and is looking to regain that NCRC title.
While the biggest news out of the NCRC may well be how a football player feels about rugby, there is more going on in the Pacific Northwest.
Western Washington moved to 4-0 in the Northwest Collegiate Rugby Conference with a 43-17 win over Boise State Saturday.
In other action, Gonzaga moved to 3-0 with a 26-24 defeat of Oregon, Washington moved to 3-0-1 with a 36-15 win over Oregon State, and Western Oregon defeated Washington State 51-17.
