Playoff Race in Full Swing in SCRC
Who's tops in the Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference? According to Tennessee head coach and SCRC league secretary Martin Bradley, the conference championship, which takes place Nov 15-16 in Columbia, SC, looks to play out this way:
- East (two of three): Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina
- West (two of three): Alabama, Mississippi State, Auburn
- West 1 will play East 2
- East 1 will play West 2
There’s plenty of action before the clash in Columbia, though, as the top two teams from the East and West divisions will be determined by league play over the next three weekends.
The two top teams in the league will qualify and attend the ACRC Bowl Series in Charlotte, N.C. on Nov. 21-22. The SCRC Champion will square off against the ACRL (Schools of the ACC) Champion. Read More»
