Home D1A match against one of the two newest affiliate members of the Rocky Mountain Rugby D1A conference. The Zoomies welcome the young men of Utah Valley to USAFA for their Colorado road trip to play at the USAFA Men's Rugby pitch.
The Wolverines of Utah Valley University are playing their first season in the premier collegiate division of college rugby, the D1A. UVU has performed well in previous years in the lower division, the D1AA, and even scored a victory in the first round of the Varsity Cup against UCLA last spring.
UVU's move to D1A coincided with their desire to join the Rocky Mountain Rugby D1A conference as an affiliate member along with BYU meaning that this 2017-2018 season those teams won't be part of the conference table/standings. However as fellow conference members, we look forward to UVU performing well in an attempt to make an at-large bid to the D1A national playoffs. UVU and BYU will both be eligible for full membership during the 2018-2019 season making our already strong conference even stronger.
