Where There's Texas NSCRO Rugby - Oct 11

Angelo State (W) at Sam Houston (W)

Saturday Noon in Huntsville

Angelo State is this year's newest entry to Texas Women's College Rugby and they are being welcomed into the fold by a SHSU club that is beginning to show some experience.  

UT-Dallas (W)  v Texas Christian (W)

Saturday Noon at Gateway Park in Ft Worth

Both clubs have built a solid presence in the DFW area over the past two years and both have enjoyed the support of their respective men's clubs through their journey. UTD has the numbers and better experience and should travel home with victory smiles.

UT-Dallas at LeTourneau

Saturday at 7pm in Longview

This game has been a rivalry from the start. In LeTourneau's freshman year as a squad, the Yellowjackets played UTD to a very close first half. The Comets came back and own this series, so far. We expect LeTourneau to have another great season, but UTD's experience cannot be counted out.

Lamar at Sam Houston

Saturday at 8pm in Huntsville

This is Lamar's first punch out for the 2014-2015 season. The Cardinals face a hard foe in a re-vamped, new-attitude Sam squad that played well at last week's Heart of Texas Tournament.

Prairie View A&M v St Edward's

Saturday Noon at Hun's Pitch in Austin

There are few in Texas as excited about Prairie View having a rugby club as this author. This is the Panthers first rugby game ever and I hope we have decades more rugby out of this little college on the prairie. The Hilltoppers should win this match, but the Panthers should field a squad that gives them a run for the money.

Blinn College at UT-San Antonio

Saturday at 5pm in San Antonio

Blinn College is the other newcomer to the Lone Star Conference this year. The Buccaneers did not win any matches in last weekend's Heart of Texas Tournament, but they did find in-goal in each of their three matches and twice against UTSA. The Roadrunners won that match 32-10. The Bucs have had a week to refocus. The new club curse is always lack of defense. Can they overcome on the road?
