GRR: Penn State
Penn State backed up its close win over Notre Dame College last week with a nifty little shutout of Mary Washington.
It was a hard-nosed effort by UMW, a team that has just joined the Rugby East. But the Mothers were on defense way too much and Penn State’s work in the breakdown mean Mary Washington’s attacking movements weren’t easily sustained.
Penn State pulled away, barely, from Notre Dame College to beat the Falcons 31-25 in the Nittany Lions' first Rugby East game of the season.

Arkansas battled Navy in the rain in Jonesboro, Ark., and it was a game that hinged, to a certain extent, on one play. With the score 10-7 to ASU near halftime.
