Back on national TV, RSL hopes to make a good showing for the nation as they face their bay area rival, San Jose Earthquakes. With the Western Conference more difficult this year, RSL will need every point at home they can get.
The culmination of 3 weeks of pool play, the Penn Mutual Varsity Cup features the most recognized and accomplished university rugby programs in the country including BYU, Utah, Air Force, Arizona State, Arkansas State, California, Clemson, Central Washington University, Dartmouth, Navy, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas, and UCLA. Broadcast live on NBCSN.
RSL is hoping to get the bad taste out of their mouth after the thumping they took in the final game of their 2014 season. With Donovan gone and Gerrard still not in town, RSL looks hopeful to beat their California rivals.
