UCRFC Takes Number One in MAC South
UC Rugby secured the number one seed in the MAC south this weekend with a win against Miami (OH) making us 4-0 in MAC play. This is the first time in school history we have secured a position in the MAC playoffs, as well as the first number one seed. The team will travel to Bowling Green this coming weekend (November 5-6) to compete for the title of MAC Champion. The first match will take place Saturday, November 5th vs. Western Michigan, at 2:00 pm. The winner of this match will face the winner of Bowling Green vs. Dayton. The championship match will be held Sunday, November 6th at 1:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for the club, as well as a huge achievement!
Along with getting to compete for the MAC title, the top two teams from the conference will be awarded with a trip to the D1AA National championships, being held over multiple weekends at the end of November and early December. Another amazing opportunity for the team!
