The Cal Bears are the winners of this year's TIAR Award for Men's College Team of the Year. Cal claimed the award by winning 55% of the vote in our fan poll. Life, the DI-A champions, finished second with 32%. BYU, the team Cal beat in the Varsity Cup final, finished third with 13%. The Cal-BYU match in the Varsity Cup will go down as a classic match in college rugby with lead changes, great rugby, and thrilling play end to end. After having lost to BYU the last few years Cal wasn't favored to win in Provo but thanks to the play of players like Russell Webb, James Kondrat, and others the team executed a nearly perfect game down the stretch to come away with the win. Now they have a TIAR Award to go along with it.
