The University of Colorado has been sanctioned by DIA Rugby fot fielding two unregistered players in a league game this fall.
Two players, Hayes Ward and Sam Tilley, played against New Mexico on September 21. Neither player was CIPP'd and neither was listed on the official matchday roster. Those players were later registered with USA Rugby in the following week.
Ten conferences have confirmed their Men's DII College conferences, with three more to go.
Here's a rundown of what has happened so far.

It's a bit of a rivalry weekend in DIA and DIAA college rugby with several schools that have a bit of a history going at it; one of those rivalries will be revisited in the Rocky Mountains as Colorado takes on Colorado State.
The startling turnaround of Colorado Mesa continues, as the Mavericks claimed another big victory over the weekend.
Barely a month after giving up over 100 points to Northern Colorado, Mesa has figured out its attacking and defensive pattern, and with some players back from injury are a real force in the Rocky Mountain Conference in Men’s DII College.
The Rocky Mountain HS Grizzlies won both the Varsity and JV Divisions of the Rugby Idaho and the West Ada School District girls fall 7s championships.
BYU just throttled Utah State by the credulity-straining score of 167-0 Saturday to improve to 4-0 in the Rocky Mountain Conference.
In a result no one wants to see, the Cougars got three tries from scrumhalf Dylan Parry and 30 points from fullback Connor Parry with ten conversions and two tries.
With the D1A games coming up for October 12 we here at Goff Rugby Report think you need to see what the conference standings are.
PAC, California, and Red River have not kicked off yet, and the Mid-South is just getting a couple of games done in the fall. Here's what we have.
Rocky Mountain is won the West Ada School District Girls 7s Fall League regular season, with three-quarters of the team getting on the scoreboard as the team capped off an 11-1 record.
The Rocky Mountains were hit with some early snow this week and even on the rugby fields something strange was in the air.
Strangest of all perhaps was Colorado Mesa’s startling 48-29 defeat of previously 2-0 Western Colorado.
Western has been a playoff team before, and Mesa was three weeks removed from a 110-0 humbling at the hands of Northern Colorado.
It's a full weekend of D1A action this weekend. Here's a look at what's up:Rocky Mountain
BYU is at Colorado State in an early clash of two teams with conference hopes. We have a closer look at Colorado State, and the Rams have a ton of potential, but BYU's ability to reload and maintain has always been strong.
Mose Timoteo is back for a second season with the Colorado State Rams men's rugby program, and that much-needed stability has been helped by the longtime Eagles' connections in the game.
