The BYU Rugby team will travel to Mesquite, NV to play in the Red Rock tournament against six teams from January 22-23 after beating Utah 82-17 last week in St. George, UT.
"We have an exciting weekend ahead of us as we take on several teams down south," said BYU rugby head coach David Smyth. "I look forward to our team playing this weekend to see the results of their hard work."
A collegiate rugby team with five national titles, the BYU Cougars had more than ten different players score tries against its home-state rival, University of Utah, last week in a scrimmage with twenty minute quarters. This week's tournament in Mesquite will have two twenty minute halves.
