Cal Awaits SoCal Rival as Sweet 16s Brackets Fill

It'll be a NorCal/SoCal showdown in the upcoming USA Rugby nationals, but the #2-seeded Bears don't yet know if they'll be squaring off against UCLA or Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo.

As of today's territorial play-off action, all but three berths in the Round of 16 are filled. Cal is set to meet the eventual #15 seed, to be determined in a contest between UCLA and Cal Poly next Saturday in Los Angeles.

 

Saturday will also see the #11 and #12 seedings awarded to the victors of the Pacific Coast play-off pools in Ellensburg, Wash. and Moraga, Calif.

St. Mary's College will take on Oregon while Chico State battles UC Davis to ultimately determine the #11 seed.

The 12th berth goes to the eventual winner of the pool comprised of Central Washington, Sacramento State, Utah and Washington.

Play-offs today filled a half-dozen slots in the Sweet 16s brackets. Penn State's 25-13 victory over Delaware bestows the #16 seed to the men from the First State and the unenviable task of taking on #1 BYU. Penn State takes the #7 position.

Arkansas State downed Tennessee 35-14, awarding the Red Wolves the sixth seed. The Volunteers have a date with Army as the result of taking the #13 berth. 

Finally, the Aggies of Texas A&M slipped by Louisiana State 20-14 to snag the fifth seed. LSU's earned the tenth seed and will meet Penn State in nationals.

The Bears, undefeated in 22 matches this season, will meet their championship opponent on Apr. 17 in Marietta, Ga. Cal's earned a 1,301-point scoring advantage over its opponents, a 175-point improvement over last season's pace.
