All three of the division one competitions are down to the semifinals or finals and the heavyweights are showing their prowess. BYU and Cal return to their 4th consecutive Varsity Cup while Life, St.Mary’s, Lindenwood and Utah make up the DIA semifinals. Utah is the only new program to this year’s final four, with the other three being mainstays at this point of the competition.

Despite all of these schools winning this past weekend, the rankings shift. Cal escaped a tough battle with Central Washington winning 14-13. Although the Bears won, Life won convincingly over Davenport and moves ahead to the 2nd spot. Cal drops to 3rd and by virtue of the fact that the St. Mary’s loss to Cal was larger than the differential between Cal and CWU, the Cougars slot in at number four.

Indiana played Lindenwood to a one score game and was leading at halftime. Although they did not complete the upset, the Hoosiers move up five spots to number 11.

The other big mover of the week is Notre Dame College. The Falcons made their way to the DIAA final thanks to a pair of wins. They beat Middle Tennessee State and defeated AIC in a thrilling semifinals. With the win, NDC moves up to 16th and AIC drops to 17th.

Making its 2nd consecutive DIAA final, UC-Davis makes its first appearance in the rankings. It slots in at number 25.
