USA Rugby has released its latest DIA Top 20, which is voted on by various officials and members of the press, including Goff Rugby Report's Alex Goff.
There's not much movement, although Kutztown moves past Lindenwood, and Davenport drops down a couple of spots. The only new team in the list is Arizona, which comes in at #18.

HORSHAM, Pa. - The CRC Invitational 7s and the Varsity Cup have signed on Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company as the name sponsor for those two privately-run rugby tournaments. What this means is that the signing of the Philadelphia-based Penn Mutual will keep the CRC in Philadelphia for the near future.

Lindenwood moves up a spot after defeating Palmer College, moving Navy down a place.
