Not much changed in our DI college rankings. The top seven were all idle this week and the remaining members of the top 10 all won except for UCLA who was playing 7s. Army and Penn State continued to win in Rugby East and move ahead of the Bruins. Penn State and Army will meet this weekend to test our rankings.
Navy played Air Force in the Shea Cup this weekend and our rankings held up. Air Force... Read More
The DII rankings remain relatively unchanged except for a few Southern Conference teams making their way into the rankings. The Southern Conference appears to be one of the strongest in the country, and a pair of undefeated teams breaks into the Top 25.
UNC-Wilmington and Furman continue to dominate their respective divisions and stick at 6th and 12th respectively. Coastal Carolina edged the... Read More
Week three of the DI college rankings sees a bit of a shake up. A couple of different games featured ranked teams squaring, off and in both instances, the lower ranked team came away victorious.
The game of the weekend was a back and fourth affair between NDC and Davenport. The Falcons scored a 78th minute try to win the game and move up two spots to 14th overall. Davenport drops from 10th to... Read More
Several marquee games highlighted DII this weekend. Norwich, Bentley and Western State all had quality wins and move up in the rankings.
Norwich moved to 2-0 in NECRC play in impressive fashion. After beating Rhode Island last week, the Cadets beat Middlebury 30-14 this week. Middlebury is a bit of an unknown in DII after moving down from DI last year. Last week Middlebury was ranked 9th but a... Read More
Most of the ranked teams won convincingly this weekend, and with the majority of top teams not in action, the top 10 remains pretty much in tact. There were two big exceptions, however. Central Washington was accidentally omitted from the rankings and slots in at number five on our list. The other was the result of the matchup between Air Force and Utah.
Utah came into the game ranked number nine... Read More
DII Men’s College has gotten under way and the last couple weeks have provided little insight into the current power structure. With a number of teams leaving for DI and a couple coming down to DII, the rankings look quite a bit different than how they ended last season.
Minnesota-Duluth and UW-Whitewater still sit at one and two respectively, but with Salisbury, Towson and Lindenwood-Belleville... Read More
The final installment of the rankings are out and we have some movement at the top. After the three respective championships were played this past weekend, there is some more clarity yet more ambiguity.
Cal shocked BYU on BYU's campus to win the Penn Mutual Varsity Cup. The win snapped the Cougars two year unbeaten streak and was the first lost BYU ever suffered on South Field. Cal earned its way... Read More
With playoff action taking place across the country, we are getting a good sense of where teams stand. The Varsity Cup, DIA and DIAA provided some good insight into the current power structure.
The Varsity Cup featured two close games and two blowouts. BYU once again displayed its prowess while Central Washington smashed a good Utah team. For their efforts, the Wildcats move ahead of Lindenwold... Read More
Two games highlighted the movement in this weeks ranking. With limited action taking place due to Easter weekend, only Army and Clemson improved their standing.
Army battled Navy in a battle of service academies. Army came away with a 27-22 victory in a back and fourth affair. Army created a bit of a quagmire for the ranking committee, as all three service academies went 1-1 in the Commander-In-... Read More
The top five remain unchanged despite a lopsided loss from Cal. British Columbia beat up the Golden Bears in Canada but it is tough to gauge its strength relative to the stateside teams. With Life winning at the death, it was not enough to move the needle.
Life and Lindenwood slugged it out in Missouri Saturday. A last second try and conversion kept Life unblemished. A win for the Lions would... Read More
