GRR: Pacific West Conference
The Pacific Western Conference is almost done and the playoff teams have been confirmed.
The University of Missouri won two games over the weekend without taking the field and now Mizzou is officially the Heart of America conference champs with a 7-0 record.
Both Iowa State and Nebraska were on the schedule to play Missouri this weekend, but Iowa State forfeited some time ago and Nebraska forfeited this week, leaving Mizzou with no one to play.
Still on the winning track, UC Davis is not taking anything for granted in the Pacific West Conference.
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:
One of the interesting surprises in Men's DIAA college rugby is that there's an impression held by some in the East that most of the season is played in the fall.
That's not exactly the case, given that the Gold Coast, Pacific West, NCRC, and Mountain States all start in the winter, and the Heart of America and Ivy League (playoffs, anyway) finish off in the spring.
