Schedules For This Weekend
This week, teams are returning back to play after taking two weeks off.
Howard University Women’s Rugby is looking to build on their winning streak as they head out to York College in Pennsylvania. In their last game, they took down a Division 1 University of North Carolina team, 59-7. Howard University Women should be an overwhelming competition for a smaller York College team. Look for Howard University to also give their second team some warm-ups, as the B-Side will also take on Georgetown at York College of Pennsylvania. If you have time, go watch them play in York, PA, and support their run back to a 2nd consecutive national championship.
Prairie View A&M Men’s Rugby will be protecting their house as they take on Trinity University of San Antonio, TX. Prairie View A&M took down Stephen F. Austin, 49-0, on September 30th. After taking a week off, they will look to continue their Fall season on an upward progression with another big win. If you happen to be in Prairie View, TX, go check them out on Saturday, October 14, 2023.
