Even as college rugby conferences are shifting their associations, teams within those conferences are also moving around.
And one major issue is now rearing its head—varsity status.
A year after winning the Men's DII College championship, North Carolina State might be going to the fall DIAA playoffs.
The Wolfpack won the runner-up playoff Saturday against Salisbury, defeating the Sharks 24-15 in the playoff between the #2 and #3 team in the conference.
As has been the case all season, the game was close.
Without playing this weekend, NC State did what it needed to do and will be in the 2nd-vs-3rd playoff in the Chesapeake Conference.
The road to the Chesapeake Conference probably goes through Maryland, but Virginia Tech is driving the bus.
