DI Spring Leader, Pac Mountain, Ready for League

USA Rugby’s DI College Spring Championship trophy has remained in the Pacific Mountain Rugby Conference (PMRC) for the previous three seasons – specifically in Northern California, thanks to UC Davis (2) and current champion Chico State (photo). PMRC is divided into two competitions – North and West – and they begin league play later this month. Crossover playoffs occur in late March, two weeks prior to the regional championships.

The PMRC West is all NorCal, hailing from Humboldt State in the north to Stanford in the south. The five teams will play each other home and away through mid-March, necessitating some double-header weekends. The PMRC North covers Washington, Oregon and Idaho, and the six teams play each other once prior to crossover playoffs.

Looking ahead ... USA Rugby’s spring regional playoffs are currently slated to begin with a Round of 16, which means four more teams will advance to the post-season due to the absence of DI Elite programs this year. By comparison, the DI Fall regional playoffs begin at the quarterfinal stage. With that said, BYU has left DI Elite for DI Spring and will likely take an at-large berth to one of the western regional sites. And remember: Teams that compete in BYU’s pool will have a Friday-Saturday schedule.
