GRR: Rocky Mountain
The Rocky Mountains were hit with some early snow this week and even on the rugby fields something strange was in the air.

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
