GRR: Western Michigan
The Mid-American Conference got going this weekend with favored teams victorious.
As has been the case throughout the country, questions remain about which teams can get the numbers to compete. The MAC has started well in that regard with teams able to make their commitments.
The Men’s CRC 7s tournament has to have Lindenwood and Life as their favorites.
Both of these programs have performed very well on the national stage in 7s; Life was runner-up in the old CRC three times and the USA Rugby 7s championships once. They also won USA Rugby’s 7s championship in 2011.
The Iowa Central Tritons started the 2019 fall season as a Division II team, and now they are DIAA fall champions.
The Tritons defeated Western Michigan 36-21 Sunday in Matthews, NC.
Western Michigan club president and mechanical engineering student Joey Backe tells us why his Broncos are in the DIAA fall final.
