GRR: Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech defeated the University of Louisville 24-22 to claim their second straight NCR D1AA championship and putting an emphatic stamp on the value of a difficult schedule in honing good rugby players.
Louisville and Virginia Tech will face off in the final of the NCR D1AA playoffs after both won their semifinals over the weekend.
Goalkicking and momentum shifts were hugely influential on this day.
Virginia Tech's journey back to the NCR D1AA semifinals is a lesson in losing.
And we're down to four teams in NCR's D1AA championship after this weekend's quarterfinals.
In most cases the higher-seeded or higher-ranked team won, but not always.
