Rugby Post Season: Cal vs. Life

The College Premier Division's inaugural season is officially in the books. The cream has settled to the top, leaving just eight sides to battle for the national rugby crown.

Topping the table in the Pacific Conference is #1 California (24-0, 7-0) and #2 St Mary's (12-2, 6-1). California's Golden Bear's will host the Mid South #2 side, Life University (6-1, 5-1) at St Mary's home turf for a quarterfinal match on May 7. The Gaels will be away at the Mid South #1 venue to face Arkansas State (9-0, 6-0).

Winners of the two Pacific/Mid South quarterfinal matches will square off against one another in a semifinal match in Glendale, Colo. on May 14.

Glendale's other seminfinal match will pit the winners of the Western Conference/Rugby East Conference quarterfinals against one another for the right to move on the final at Sandy, Utah on May 21.

Army (7-0,7-0) won the top spot in the Rugby East Conference with Saturday's 34-27 win over Navy (7-3, 6-1). The Cadets host Utah (11-2, 6-1) for the quarterfinal while the Western Conference #1 side, BYU (12-0, 7-0), takes on the Midshipmen.
