GRR: Notre Dame College
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
Notre Dame College defeated Lindenwood-Belleville 34-17 Saturday morning in Lamont, Ill. in a clash of two very good independent DIAA teams.
In a dramatic and much-anticipated non-conference college matchup, Notre Dame College held off the University of Indiana 31-30.
In the intriguing world of the independent college seasons, Notre Dame College and Lindenwood-Belleville have been chasing each other without actually facing off (yet).
It’s a dance where, as both coaches have acknowledged, every game is a playoff game. Neither team can afford to select down, or use a non-conference game as a test, because USA Rugby is evaluating everything they do.
