About the Red River Rugby D1A Collegiate Conference:

The Red River Rugby D1A Collegiate Conference was formed in the summer of 2014 as part of USA Rugby’s Division 1A. We originally consisted of six teams: University of Oklahoma, Texas Tech University, Baylor University, University of Texas, Texas A&M University and Texas Christian University. Our original goal was to partner with like-minded programs to help develop, improve and highlight Rugby
in the Southwest.

The following year we added Louisiana State University because of their strong brand name and even stronger Club history. They did not disappoint as they won the Red River in their first year and represented very well in the D1A Quarterfinals.

This year we added two more established clubs that represent strong brands in University of Arkansas and University of Houston. We fully expect these teams to continue to help us grow are already competitive competition.
