Florida State University just edged Central Florida to win the South Independent Rugby Conference final Sunday and book a spot in the national DIAA playoffs.
Central Florida and Florida State will be playing for the South Independent Conference championship Sunday after both won their semis over their Northern rivals Saturday.
FSU defeated Kennesaw State 43-7 on Saturday. Frazer Baron, Kody Boswell, Cameron Chadsey, and Anthony Soto all scored tries. Evan Barada scored two, and FSU also got a penalty try.
The South Independent Rugby Conference is set for its playoffs this weekend.
MTSU has won the SIRC North and gone undefeated in the process. Kennesaw State won big this past weekend and had already clinched 2nd in the North anyway.
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:
The South Independent Rugby Conference’s North Division probably comes down to this weekend.
At least, who will be 1st in the division comes down to this weekend, as Middle Tennessee State hosts Kennesaw State. MTSU is 6-0, while KSU is 4-1. If MTSU loses, they aren’t really out of the picture for 1st, but if they win, then it’s pretty much game over.
