College 7s Nationals Men's DI Day Two Recap

St. Mary's, Davenport, Lindenwood, and Utah are into the Cup quarterfinals at the College 7s Nationals. None of those teams are a surprise to make it to the top four and the tournament is still on track for a Lindenwood-St. Mary's final as expected.

Most of the pools were decided even with one match left to play in the morning. Those matches did decide who topped the pools and a couple of teams found their place in the quarterfinals. St. Mary's unsurprisingly finished as the top team in Pool A with a 31-5 win over Bowling Green, who still made it through.

Over in Pool B there were some questions after Grand Canyon and Stanford drew on day one. Despite a 26-5 loss to Lindenwood in their final pool match Grand Canyon qualified for the quarterfinals. Stanford beat Wyoming in their final pool match but it wasn't enough.

Pool C is where the real action happened on day two. Arkansas led the pool going into their final match but they lost to Ohio State 26-12. That, coupled with a 28-12 win for Florida International over Santa Clara saw both Ohio State and Florida International jump over the Razorbacks for a spot in the quarterfinals.

Both Utah and Davenport had already qualified for the quarterfinals but the pool was decided as Davenport won 22-12.

In the quarterfinals it was fairly straightforward as St. Mary's, Davenport, Lindenwood, and Utah most advanced with relative ease. St. Mary's beat Grand Canyon 36-5 and Lindenwood beat Bowling Green 42-0. The other two semi-finals were closer with Utah only advancing over Ohio State 15-5 and Davenport slipping past Florida International 12-7.

Tomorrow's semi-finals will have St. Mary's against Davenport and Lindenwood against Utah.
