Columbia, SC - Carolina Rugby held their SCRC season opener this past weekend and came out victorious over the Bulldogs of the University of Georgia.
USC opened the scoring early when, within the first three minutes, senior lock Drez Henfield touched down the first try of the match, which was converted by junior scrumhalf Brian Keown, to give the Gamecocks an early 7-0 lead.
A week after just edging Ohio State in dramatic fashion, Bowling Green hosted Davenport in another non conference game, and after the first 60 minutes had to wonder why.
The University of Notre Dame made a statement this weekend with a 43-32 defeat of Ohio State in a non-conference clash.
It’s all to play for in the Mid-America Conference, as a busy weekend produced few games that actually affected the standings.
All teams have matches with opponents in the other division (the MAC is split between the North and the South), but those games aren’t recorded in the standings. So only Dayton’s 24-8 defeat of Cincinnati counts, and it counts a lot as Dayton is now 2-0.
