DII College Rugby gets underway in earnest over the next two weeks, so this ranking is very much a preseason list. UW-Whitewater and Salisbury top it, as they were the two best teams in the country last year.

While we heavily weighed last seasons' final rankings in creating this Top 25, it's not the only information taken into account. UMKC, for example, joins the rankings for the first time in the program's short history. The Roos have recently brought on a very good coach in Scott Kram, and they have talent in the cupboard. 

Notre Dame College, in its third season as a versity program, should now be poised for a serious national title run. The Falcons are one of the few teams to have played already, as they have a tough non-conference slate of games that ought to prepare them for the postseason.
