Canterbury D1A Top 20: Week 3

D1A Rugby: Canterbury D1A Top 20: Week 3

BOULDER, Colo. – A nail biter of a match out of Rugby East created movement in the top half of the Canterbury D1A Top 20 this week. The narrow victory by Penn State over Wheeling Jesuit jumps the Nittany Lions to No. 8, while the Cardinals tremendous effort in defeat only allows Jesuit to fall back one spot to No. 9.

Indiana inched closer to the top ten after downing Illinois 52-23 in its first BTU match, while Ohio State’s 22-point loss to a very good Bowling Green side forced the Buckeyes to nearly fall out of the Top 20.

This week, a third conference jumpstarts its season as the West gets underway. Right off the bat, the West presents a top fifteen showdown when Utah hosts Colorado State Sept. 26.
