2017 Varsity Cup Teams Named, BYU Stripped Of Title
The Varsity Cup has released their list of teams for the 2017 tournament. The competition has undergone a lot of changes in the offseason with the biggest news being BYU dropping out of the tournament and being stripped of their 2015 title for using an ineligible player. Air Force will also not be participating in the tournament after taking in some considerations from their athletic department.
With BYU not in the tournament a new team is going to make it into the final. The early favorites have to be Central Washington who have looked good so far. Arkansas State, Army, UCLA, and Utah have to be in consideration as well. It's also to be determined how the brackets shake out given most of the teams reside on the East Coast and where the final will be located.
2017 Teams: Arizona State, Arkansas State, Army, Cal, Central Washington, Clemson, Dartmouth, Harvard, Navy, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, UCLA, Utah
