The college 15s season is done and dusted, with no more games left to help sort the final rankings. The top four is easy, below that, it gets a little tougher. BYU beat Cal and St. Mary's. Cal beat St. Mary's. St. Mary's beat Life. There's your inarguable top four.
No. five could be Central Washington or Davenport. Tough one to pick since they didn't play each other or have any common opponents, but we give the Wildcats the nod because they lost less and gave BYU an uncharacteristically tough game in the Varsity Cup semifinal. Then it's Davenport and Lindenwood, both of whom scored resoundingly lopsided wins over military academies in the D1A quarterfinals.
There was a little shakeup throughout the rest of the Top 25, most of which is easily explained by the results of the early postseason rounds. DI-AA champion UC Davis breaks in at the bottom of the list. Falling out to make room is LSU, which played very little rugby over the last several months.
