As the playoffs were finalized over the weekend the Goff National rankings were posted and the Tigers ended up ranked #4 in the nation in D2. The Tigers beat Villianova (#7) in their sweet 16 match and were beaten by Wisconsin-Whitewater (#2) by one try in a close Elite 8 match.
Wisconsin-Whitewater fell to D2 champion, Queens in the final match yesterday. Wisconsin-Whitewater dominated in the Quarterfinal on Saturday, besting Missouri S&T (#5) 59-25. Since the Tigers played Wisconsin-Whitewater close they were able to sneak in front of Missouri S&T to take the #4 spot.
The Tigers have scheduled Missouri S&T (Rolla, Mo) for home and away matches in Spring 2020. These are non-conference developmental matches, which will be good for both clubs to test players in a competitive platform.
