BYU Rugby Wins 2009 National Championship

In one of the more remarkable upsets in the history of collegiate rugby, the Cougars scored 13 unanswered points in the final 18 minutes Saturday night to stun top-seeded Cal 25-22 in the Division I national championship game at Steuber Stadium.

BYU stuns Cal to end five-year reign in rugby

BYU scored three tries and held the vaunted Bears to a single touchdown. They scored a try down two men. They weathered four yellow cards. All with a vocal, and largely pro-Cal, crowd of 3,400 breathing down their necks. They kept the speedy Dustin Muhn and the brilliant and bandaged Colin Hawley pretty much in check. Blaine Scully was bottled up. It was an impressive performance under difficult circumstances.

An Amazing Night for BYU, College Rugby

I’m still looking for video of the match somewhere. If anyone tracks it down, please point me to it.

Update: more coverage and audio interviews with the winning team here.
