BOULDER, Colo. – Three of D1A’s six conferences are now in action, so expect weekly shakeups out of the Big Ten, Rugby East, and West. This week, Penn State took a minor step back to No. 7 after losing a hard-fought battle to Army.
Colorado State made the biggest positive jump to No. 11 on the D1A rankings. The six-spot improvement is a result of the Rams’ dominant, 57-0 victory over in-state rival Colorado.
From the Big Ten, Wisconsin finds its way back in the Top 20 by way of its 54-22 win against Iowa. A Badger win this week against Illinois will set up an Oct. 4 match against Michigan that could have conference championship implications.
