Match 2: Wisconsin 12, Temple 12

Wisconsin got the early jump, but there was no doubt who the home town favorite was in match two of the Collegiate Rugby Championships. Temple played a physical first half and finally capitalized on an opportunity to find a score on the right side of the wide open pitch to tie Wisconsin, 5-5 just before the half. The Temple fans were loud from the start, but the Badgers did their best to quiet them down a bit with an early score, but missing the conversion.

Temple struck first in the second half and made the conversion for a 12-5 lead, but Wisconsin tied it up with under a minute to play with their own score and conversion. Regulation time would not be enough, with the score knotted at 12-12 when the buzzer sounded. Despite a late scoring opportunity, Wisconsin failed to score in the final seconds and the match ended in a tie.

Temple will play LIFE (1-0) at 11:38 in match nine. Wisconsin will play Penn State (0-1) in match ten.
