We're down to four teams in the Men's DII College playoffs after this past weekend's two-game playoffs.

Here's the rundown.

It’s serious playoff time now in Men’s DII, and one wonders if anyone can catch Wisconsin Whitewater.

Did USA Rugby do it right after all?

Plenty of DII college rugby fans weren't happy with the choice of at-large teams.

USA Rugby collegiate jefe Rich Cortez said it was a tough choice, and acknowledged to Goff Rugby Report that maybe the MARC deserved a second seed, and perhaps there shouldn't be a #3 team in the playoffs.

Thirteen teams from the Liberty Conference in D1A, as well as AIC, will assemble this weekend at Fairfield University for a series of Challenge matches.

RPI defeated Sacred Heart 32-27 to win the Tri-State Conference for the second time in three years.

"We were able to prove what we thought, which is we're able to play at a top level for a full game," said hooker Ray Lanzillo, who led a strong forward effort, especially in the lineouts. "We always come out really hard, but in this game we played hard for a full 80 minutes."

We're down to one more DII playoff spot to be decided.

Sunday, RPI hosts Sacred Heart in the Tri-State final.

Saturday, the play-ins were held, and the WIIL Conference came out of it pretty well.

#2 Illinois State edged the Midwest winner IUPUI 24-21. The WIIl #3, UW-Milwaukee, defeated Minnesota-Duluth 39-31 to halt Duluth's longtime run to the national final four.

Many, many changes in the rankings thanks to a couple of weeks' data.

The MARC teams get a big boost, in part because the 2016 conference winner, Rowan, has been tearing it up in DI. At some point, that has to indicate that this is a very, very competitive conference. So the undefeated teams get a big boost.

The two strongest Upstate NY DII college teams are back facing off for the conference title this coming weekend - to no one's surprise.
