Chesapeake Unveils Schedile

The newly-formed Chesapeake Conference has finalized its schedule for the fall of 2016.

The new DIAA conference will feature all nine teams playing each other once, with the season wrapping up November 12, a week before the Rugby Bowls November 19. With three teams former ACRL members, two being top-four DII programs from last fall, one team being a champion NSCRO program, one being a DIAA playoff team and conference winner from last season, and two more very well-regarded DII teams, this will be a hugely competitive conference.

The first weekend features Towson v James Madison in an early showcase game. On October 1 and October 8, Salisbury takes on Towson and JMU in quick succession, which will be a tough week for the Sharks. Every game will be a tough test for Mount Saint Mary's as the small college national champions look to prove themselves at the DIAA level. They likely won't have too much trouble proving they belong.

Watch also for September 17 and Virginia Tech v Virginia - always a good rivalry game and a signal which of those two will contend.
