We have about 70 teams in action in Men's D2 college this weekend.
Among them are at least 23 ranked teams. Some of those, such as #1-ranked IUP or #9 Villanova are playing D1 programs (Villanova's opponent, Army, is not their front line D1A lineup).
The Florida DIAA men's collegiate league will partner with the Collegiate Rugby Association of America (CRAA) and will play bowl games at CRAA's spring championship weekend.
Well this is a strange all-D1 rankings week as they sort some things out.
We decided to bring together all of the D1A, NCR D1, D1AA, and NCR D1AA-Club teams into one ranking. The only limit is that we're ranking teams that are schedule to play a significant fall season (so one or two games don't really count).
So who leads the Rugby East?
It might be too early to tell, of course, after just one week. It's relatively rare to have a team just roll throughout without at least a scare, if not an outright loss.
Playing in the Deep South, Southeastern Louisiana could well be a Men's D2 College dark horse and showed that over the weekend with a win over the University of Houston.
Played on a very hot Saturday evening, the game was tight in the first half, but opened up for a 52-22 SLU victory.
