One week in and already things are shaken up in the Southern Rugby Conference in men’s DII college competition.
GRR’s #4 team from last year, Furman, went down to Coastal Carolina 29-8 Saturday in something of an upset and a nice birthday present for Coastal’s coach, Tom Barnett.
Middle Tennessee State put down something of a marker in the opening game of the South Independent Rugby Conference, as they defeated longtime rivals Kennesaw State 50-8 in Georgia.
One of the most notable results in the non-conference games this weekend was Boston College handing Dartmouth a 43-17 loss.
The Great Lakes Men’s DII conference started with a series of lopsided results this weekend.
Oakland University slammed Ferris State 59-0 paced by Kurt Ryan’s four tries and three from DJ Pinneo.
Ohio State looked impressive Saturday with a 57-7 victory over the University of Pittsburgh.
Flanker Corey Harmon scored three tries for the Buckeyes and scrumhalf Ian Hildebrandt scored two and set up two more.
