The college rugby season is still very young, as a handful of the top DI conferences kickoff this weekend, but there has been plenty of action since our last ranking. The only significant upset featured Penn State knocking off Davenport. 

The Nittany Lions didn't just beat the Panthers, they beat them 30-3. DU all-everything flyhalf JP Eloff was on the sideline during the contest, as he's still recovering from a torn ACL. But the win was a big one for Penn State's new era. The result sees the Nittany Lions move up one spot and the Panthers drop a few. 

The other movement in our Top 25 comes toward the bottom end, as Bowling Green, Clemson and AIC all move up over teams who play the bulk of their 15s in the spring. BGSU has a close win over rival Ohio State in the bag, and the Falcons welcomed Louisville to the MAC with a 62-0 drubbing, as well. Clemson scored a shutout in its Atlantic Coast opener, and AIC piled on a lot of points on East Coast rival Northeastern.
