In a well-fought match, BYU rugby defeated Arkansas State 49-42 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah on Saturday night. About 8,700 Cougar fans were in attendance to see BYU claim the D-IA national title. The Cougars' scoring distribution was good as every try scored by BYU came from a different player. Shaun Davies also kicked very well in penalty kicks (3/3) and conversions (5/6) to keep the margin comfortable for the Cougars in the second half.
BYU finishes the season 17-0, and big Mikey Su'a was named championship MVP.
Congratulations to the BYU rugby players, coaches, and staff for bringing home the second rugby title to Provo! Video highlights from BYUtv below the jump:
