DIA had a number of thrilling conference and non-conference games this weekend. Some ranked teams were tested heavily and one team taking a ranked scalp.

There were several high profile non-conference games. After a week filled with drama, that saw the Iona program thrown into upheaval, the team traveled to West Point for a date with Army. The Black Knights ended up winning 29-19. Iona has continued to be competitive against top ranked teams.

Navy survived a scare from Mary Washington. The Mothers led 14-0 but let a couple of tries and a late penalty derail what would have been the biggest upset win in program history. The Midshipmen fought back and earned a 15-14 win and a narrow escape.

Ohio State did not fare as well falling to an unranked Notre Dame. The Irish held on late after a yellow card to win 33-28 over the Buckeyes.

Rugby East

Two games were on tap in this conference and both were blowouts. St. Bonaventure got its first win of the conference season over Buffalo and NDC bested Wheeling 48-5. Army sits atop the division but Penn State and Kutztown have several games to make up in the coming weeks. 

Liberty

In the premier game of the conference, AIC tied Fordham 17-17 on Thursday evening. Fordham scored its first try of the game with a minute to go to even the score and neither team could break the deadlock. In the I-95 division, these two and Iona still remain the favorites.

UConn and Syracuse both picked up wins to move to 2-0 and atop the two other respective divisions.

Big 10

Wisconsin and Perdue won in the Big 10. Both teams picked up their first wins of the young season in conference. Indiana has yet to play a conference game and Ohio State sits at 1-0 in conference.

Red River

The Red River opened play with defending conference champs Texas A&M blanking Texas 69-0. The other game on tap saw Arkansas knock off Texas Tech 42-13. The rest of the conference kicks off next week.

Rocky Mountain

Two games took place this weekend. Colorado shocked Colorado State 20-17 in a rivalry game out west while Utah State crushed Wyoming. It is not clear if these games counted towards league play. Colorado and Colorado State will meet again in two weeks.
