Week three of the DI college rankings sees a bit of a shake up. A couple of different games featured ranked teams squaring, off and in both instances, the lower ranked team came away victorious.

The game of the weekend was a back and fourth affair between NDC and Davenport. The Falcons scored a 78th minute try to win the game and move up two spots to 14th overall. Davenport drops from 10th to 16th with the loss. NDC will battle Indiana in a few weeks and should be an intriguing matchup between closely ranked teams. Indiana still remains slightly ahead of the Falcons, but another win from NDC could propel the small school into the top 10.

The other game between ranked teams saw Wheeling Jesuit win convincingly over Iona. The Cardinals move up four spots to 20th with the win and the Gaels drop to 25th.

Army showed its depth this weekend, winning a pair of Rugby East games on the road on back-to-back days. Penn State, Kutztown and Indiana all won via blowout and remain very close in the rankings.
