D1 College Games: Our Picks, Our Live Coverage

The quarterfinal and semifinal rounds of the D1AA fall playoffs get underway this weekend in two regional brackets. Both of those regions are in Ohio — go figure.

Meanwhile, the Red River is heating up, and one of the conference's games, Oklahoma at Texas A&M, is streaming live on FloRugby. Arkansas at LSU isn't too shabby of a matchup, either.

In the D1AA playoffs, you know we think Kentucky and Mary Washington are strong. But those two teams are in the same half of the playoffs (in one of the Ohio locations), and so we won't see those two play in the fall final.

The Liberty Challenge also takes place this weekend, and we've previewed a bunch of the games here before they stream live on FloRugby.

Iona plays its own challenge match against Saint Mary's in Moraga, CA. The Gaels of California are going to be very strong, and the Gaels of New York have been hit with some injuries.

"We'll go out there and do our best," Iona coach Bruce McLane said.
