Results are trickling in as the college teams around the country start playing games. ERugbyNews has removed the teams currently not playing fall rugby, and what is left populates our Top 25.

Keep in mind, that only a couple of actual league games are recorded in the results below (Brockport over Syracuse 24-18 and King’s Point over New Paltz 27-0 in fact). So all teams are skating on thin ice. Their rankings are so much smoke and mist at the moment (Colorado moves to #4 thanks to a 3-0 weekend at the Jackalope tournament, which is a series of 40-minute games, for example).

All could change very easily once the standings are at issue.

One reminder about the rankings. The record listed is 80-minute games against other collegiate opponents (DII and Canadians included). The record in (parentheses) is the team’s total record, including shortened tournament games and game against men’s clubs.

Some men’s clubs feature U23 or academy teams. If a college plays those teams, we will treat the games as regular college contests.
