Canterbury D1A Top 20 Rankings: Week 20

D1A Rugby: Canterbury D1A Top 20 Rankings: Week 20

Saint Mary’s and Life showed last Saturday why they are the top two teams in college rugby. The Gaels’ complete dominance over Cal may just be the best performance of any college team this season, and Life won a truly hard-fought game on the road against No. 3-ranked Arkansas State.

Colorado squeaked out another victory to remain undefeated, but the Buffs wins in the West have not been convincing enough to move them past Davenport in the rankings. In California, Santa Clara remains just behind Cal Poly, and San Diego State moves to 11.

This Saturday marks the last round of matches before the D1A playoffs being. The playoff picture is beginning to unfold, but there could be a last minute shakeup depending out how this Saturday develops.

Keep in mind, the Top 12 teams will make the playoffs with a few exceptions. Kutztown and Michigan will not be participating in the D1A playoffs in order to focus on their 7s programs.
