New into the Top 20 are West Virginia, Ohio State, Middlebury (who defeated Boston College), South Carolina, and Virginia Tech. Va Tech and USC are tied at #20.

The competition doesn’t get any fiercer than in the Rugby East Conference, where some of the best teams in the nation go head-to-head. Last weekend did not disappoint, with an epic Penn State-Kutztown game that saw the Nittany Lions roar back late in the second half to within 8 points, but fail to catch the Bears. 

The win means #3-ranked Kutztown shares the top spot in the standings with #5 Army. The two teams meet this weekend in West Point to determine the REC champion.

There's a little bit of change in the ACRC Coaches Poll for this week. The top three of Kutztown, Penn State, and Army stay the same despite Army's win over Penn State earlier in the season. Army's close escape from Iona might be part of the reason, while PSU seems to be improving.
