D1A PostSeason Deadline Means Big Changes | FloRugby | Oct 15, 2017

If any team makes that declaration and backs out of the playoffs, it faces serious penalties going forward. Regardless, declaring for the postseason doesn't mean you get to play in the postseason. You've still got to win games and qualify, either by winning your conference, or being ranked highly enough to get an at-large bid. Read more here.

Saint Mary’s Defeats Life University 30-24 for Third National Championship in Four Years | Christian Portillo

MORAGA, CALIF. - A year after Saint Mary’s lost in the D1A National Championship to Life University 24-20 in front of their home crowd, they had the opportunity to avenge themselves on Saturday at Saint Mary’s Stadium. Not only was it a chance to make up for last year’s heartbreak, it was a chance to break the tie between the Gaels and Running Eagles over the past four title matches. Life won the championship in 2013 and 2016 while Saint Mary’s repeated in 2014 and 2015.

In order to beat Life, Saint Mary’s knew that they had to improve on their sloppy 43-7 semifinal win over Arizona. Cutting down both turnovers and penalties was a focal point in practice over the past week and defense, as always, was also heavily emphasized. With this in mind, the Gaels were aware that they would have to play close to a perfect game to overcome the undefeated Running Eagles. Click here for full article
