Evansville, Ind. -- The USI Men's Rugby Club's Spring Season is a little less than two weeks away, their first game will be on March 1 against Indiana University and the University of Louisville.
The Screaming Eagles will kick-off its Spring Season against IU and Louisville in a series of matches that will resemble a round robin tournament. Each club will provide an A side team and B side team to participate in the matches for the weekend.

USI Rugby will have six weekends of rugby that will make up its Spring Season. Unlike the Fall Season which consisted mostly of single games each weekend, the Spring Season will consist of multiple matches in a weekend through tournament play to increase playing time and experience for the players.
The Spring Season will consists of three away games for the club and three home games which it will host on USI's game pitch.
USI's season will conclude with an annual Alumni Game in which the current USI Men's Rugby Club roster will participate in a match against alumni players from the club's past roster.
All home games will start at noon Central unless otherwise specified. The USI vs. IU. Louisville round robin will start at 11 a.m. Central at USI's game pitch.
