D1A Rugby: Final 2015-16 Canterbury D1A Top 20

LAFAYETTE, Colo. – Canterbury’s final Top 20 for the 2015-16 D1A Rugby season has been released, and to no surprise Life University holds on to the No. 1 spot after defeating No. 2 Saint Mary’s in a thrilling National Championship Final.

Utah used its Playoff win over Arizona to jump ahead of Indiana at No. 4, while Air Force also received a one-spot bump for its opening round victory against Cal Poly. The Wildcats may not have gotten past the Utes in the Quarterfinals, but the Independent side was able to hand LSU its first loss of the season the week prior, lifting Arizona from No. 12 to No. 9.

Kutztown, which hasn’t played a 15s match since falling to No. 5 Indiana back in November, slips to No. 12, helping to give San Diego State land at the 11th.

Sitting just beyond Top 20 are Iona, Texas A&M and Colorado. The next rendition of Canterbury’s rankings will be conducted in September before the Big Ten Universities, Rugby East and West Conference open league play in the fall.
