Team USA will take on Germany Nov. 18 in Frankfurt and Georgia Nov. 25 in Tbilisi in its only two fall tour tests. Both games will be streamed live on The Rugby Channel. 

The Eagles are 3-2 all-time against the Lelos, with Georgia taking the most recent test this summer, staving off a late comeback to beat the USA 21-17 in Atlanta in June. The Eagles last played in Tbilisi in 2010, falling 19-17 in dramatic fashion, as the Lelos scored the game-winner several minutes into extra time. 

The other match will mark the first test between the USA and Germany. The Germans are currently ranked 22nd in the world, five spots behind the Eagles. Germany is an up-and-coming rugby nation, having beaten 15th-ranked Romania earlier this year, as well as Uruguay and Brazil, two teams the USA has lost to in the last couple of years, in the same time frame.

It's also been unveiled that the USA will send its second side, USA A, to the Americas Pacific Challenge again in October. The A-level competition will be held in Uruguay for the second-straight year. In 2016, a young American squad got to play second sides from Fiji, Uruguay and Canada.
