There are few DII college rivalries as intense as Towson v Salisbury.
Both programs have challenged for a national title, although only Salisbury has won any, and the two teams seem to take great relish in bringing everything they can when they face off.
Towson University, ranked #5 by Goff Rugby Report, put in an impressive performance Saturday in defeating 10th-ranked Georgetown 43-7 in Capital Conference play.
The two highly-rated Men’s DII college programs knew this was a key game in figuring out who might win the conference, and played like it.
Towson University opened up their 2015-16 season with a 24-14 win over Millersville.
Towson University rugby actually welcomes the tough times.
Having to battle Salisbury every year? Great. Losing to Salisbury by two in the conference final? Don’t like it, but OK. Straining every sinew to get past VMI in the play-in? Just what the doctor ordered.
No. 8 Pat McKenna knows.
