College Premier Division - Week 3 Scores and Stats
The third round of the College Premier Division had a little bit of everything. A few dominant displays, some nail-biters, and an upset.
BYU put the hurt on two Colorado teams, University of Colorado and Air Force, putting themselves head and shoulders above their Western Conference competition. BYU #8 Ryan Roundy set a CDP record, scoring 7 tries against Colorado only to be overshadowed by his halfback in the Cougars' matchup with Air Force. All-American Shaun Davies set another CPD record scoring 36 points against the Zoomies.
In the East, drama unfolded in the "Barnburner" as Penn State's Joseph Baker nailed a drop goal in the 81st minute to go ahead of in-state rivals Kutztown and win 29-30. Delaware took care of Rutgers to earn themselves a top spot in the Rugby East conference.
The Mid-South had their share of drama as the Fightin' Irish upset LSU 15-11 in Notre Dame's CPD debut.
