Penn State defeated Kutztown in the premier match of the weekend. The Nittany Lions continue to be the class of the Rugby East defeating the Bears comfortably 54-24. Penn State remains at six while Kutztown drops several spots to 15.

Indiana had another tight game with a division rival and after two consecutive weeks of close calls with unranked teams, drop one spot. Ohio State, despite the loss, showed they can compete with highly touted Indiana and move in to the rankings at 23.

Dartmouth drops several spots thanks to an uncharacteristically close match with Penn. The Big Green round out the group at 25.

Clemson drops out to make way for Ohio State. The Clemson Tigers lost a close game to unranked LSU. The LSU Tigers were in close consideration but ultimately fell just short of the votes to make the top 25.
