With over 240 matches between 80 teams from eight conferences, the 2018-2019 D1A collegiate season begins this weekend and the excitement for the new start is building. Across the nation, college campuses are alive with clubs preparing for their first games by welcoming new players into the fold and integrating veterans back into the system. Most of the games have been announced, but there are plenty of matches yet to be finalized.

All the same clubs remain in the Big Ten as the intriguing match-ups in the conference include #13 Indiana at Wisconsin on October 6th, #18 Ohio State at Indiana on October 13th, Wisconsin at Ohio State on October 20th, and Michigan State at Indiana on October 27th.

Iona, Northeastern, and Binghamton ruled the Liberty Conference last season and three new teams enter the fray this fall. American International College, Oswego State, and Boston College joins the conference and AIC should give Iona a challenge in the I-95 Division on October 11th. Other notable games to look out for are Cortland at Binghamton on October 20th and Northeastern at UConn on November 3rd.

Three clubs finished with seven or more wins last season in the Red River and Texas A&M, Baylor, and LSU return to take on the competition. TCU and Houston drop out of D1A this season and are replaced by North Texas. The top three teams play a home and home with the first games between LSU at Texas A&M on September 29th, A&M at Baylor on November 3rd, and Baylor at LSU on November 10th.

#19 Colorado State swept the Rocky Mountain Conference in 2017 and the Rams will look to repeat this fall. Sixth-ranked national quarterfinalist BYU joins the Rockies this fall and will contend with the likes of the Zoomies of Air Force, the Buffalos of Colorado, and the Aggies of Utah State. Rams and the Zoomies open up the conference on September 15th, the battle for the state is a week later for Colorado and Colorado State, and Utah State welcomes BYU to the Rockies on September 29th.

The beasts of the East have four teams in the top 20 and #5 Penn State, #7 Army, #12 Notre Dame College, and #17 Kutztown will be aiming for the prize. The Nittany Lions advanced to the National Semifinals and Justin Hundley hopes to guide PSU to another Rugby East title. The Black Knights hope to end PSU’s reign and will get their chance on October 27th.

D1A National Champion Life University and the talent-rich Mid-South gained a new member in the offseason as #8 Navy joined the conference. National Semifinalist #3 Lindenwood should improve on the back of a dominant 7s season and the #10 Red Wolves of Arkansas State look to make an impact. Navy gets its first taste of the Mid-South on October 13th at home versus Clemson and then faces Lindenwood on November 10th. Standout spring games include Navy at Life on March 9th and Life at Lindenwood on March 23rd.

National Runner-Up Cal headlines the PAC Conference with #9 Arizona, UCLA, Utah, and Arizona State in tow. Games in the PAC begin in late January and the early action is highlighted by Utah at UCLA on February 9th and UCLA at Arizona on February 23rd. The conference title may come down to the March 23rd match between Cal and Arizona.

Lastly is the California Conference where perennial power Saint Mary’s leads the pack. #11 Grand Canyon is the new kid in the class and #15 Cal Poly will show them the ropes on February 1st. GCU gets its date with the Gaels on February 19th and #16 San Diego State plays Cal Poly on April 6th to close out the season.

With over 50 non-conference games on the calendar and more to be added, some of the notable tests are Army at Dartmouth on September 8th, Navy at Iona on September 15th, Mary Washington at Navy and Iona at Army on September 22nd, Navy at Air Force on October 6th, Central Washington at Saint Mary’s on January 5th, and Saint Mary’s at Cal on March 30th.
