FloRugby All-D1 College Rankings: Who WMU?

There weren't too many shifts in the All-D1 rankings this week, as 7s games and some time off by teams slowed the charge.

Still, here are a few developments:

Navy Flies Too

You can learn to be a pilot in the Navy as well as the Air Force, and the U.S. Naval Academy was a little higher in the sky than the U.S. Air Force Academy in a 46-7 win this past week. That victory, coupled with a loss by Utah and a somewhat shaky win for Davenport, vaulted Navy to No. 10.

WMU Almost Downs Panthers

Western Michigan and Davenport were tied at 21 before a late Davenport try won the game for the Panthers 28-21 on Saturday. WMU gets a 15-place boost from that very competitive loss.

Somebody Has To Move Up

With Ohio State losing to Wisconsin, UW moved up and OSU went down. Utah Valley also rose up the rankings after downing Utah, which fell five places to No. 16. But where can others sneak in? We took two solid Rugby East teams, Kutztown and Iona, and gave them a bump.

What Gives With WWU?

We had Western Washington ranked too low given that the Vikings had played a couple of games in Canada we missed. So if your team won or didn't play but moved down a spot, that's why.
