New Teams, Strong Moves Highlight FloRugby D1AA Top 40

Big shifts in the D1AA rankings because we have two weeks of data.

Western Move

Western Michigan and Western Washington move up, partly due to strong performances and partly due to other additional data.


A couple of close losses to very good teams push Louisville into the rankings. Cincinnati gets a bump and could move up more.


Rowan is now 4-0 in the MARC, and while we're not convinced of the overall strength of the schedule, winning is winning.

SIRC Starts

Kennesaw State, Middle Tennessee State, and Florida International all make big strides early. UCF lost convincingly to FIU, but Central Florida has been known to finish strong so we're keeping them in the top 40 for now.
