Canterbury D1A Top 20: Week 15

D1A Rugby: Canterbury D1A Top 20: Week 15

BOULDER, Colo. – Forty minutes into last week’s top-five showdown between Saint Mary’s and Lindenwood, there appeared to be a major shakeup at the top of the Canterbury D1A rankings, but the Gaels would fend off the Lions during the second half of a back-and-forth match.

Cal Poly and Arizona continue to rise in the Top 20. The Wildcats lost last week, but pushed the fifth-ranked Utes to the brink of defeat over the weekend. Meanwhile, Rugby East’s big three of Kutztown, Penn State, and Army fall back this week.

After bumping LSU out of the rankings last week following a string of victories, Santa Clara has now been ousted by the Tigers following their impressive 55-12 win over Alabama. The Broncos now sit just outside of the Top 20 along with Oklahoma.
