Like Subaru 7s did last week, Saturday’s Larrimer Cup gives some Collegiate Rugby Championship teams the opportunity to get a quality 7s run in before next weekend's nationally televised event.

CRC teams Ohio State, Penn State and Notre Dame are joined by Michigan in their quest for the first Larrimer College Cup. The Nittany Lions are hoping to pick up their second 7s tournament win in as many weeks, as they claimed the Subaru 7s title. Ohio State and Penn State's Larrimer confrontation will serve as a preview of what's to come in Philly, as they're pitted against each other in Pool B of the CRC.

Playing for the Men’s Division Cup are Kalamazoo, Columbus, Louisville and 1823.

The tournament is named for Terry Larrimer. A prominent Columbus attorney, Larrimer played for Princeton, Michigan, SudAmericano, Ohio State, Scioto Valley and several touring sides.

His distinguished rugby career spanned more than two decades and five continents. The Larrimer Cup celebrates his passion for the game and a cause that he grew to champion with equal enthusiasm -- finding a cure for cancer.

All proceeds from the tournament are being donated to the Columbus Foundation, where a scholarship has been established in Larrimer’s name.
