2015 ACRC Bowl Series: SCRC Championship

Saturday November 21, 2015 (All day)

The Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference final was everything advertised as the two top teams in the SCRC came ready to claim the Cup. A very well-played defensive match saw the lead change five times. As the clock counted down South Carolina appeared to have things locked up as trench battles raged deep in Tennessee territory. In the final minutes a heroic downfield drive and relentless pounding in front of the try line led to a Tennessee try in the final minute and 23-22 victory for the Volunteers.
