Liberty Conference Set For Challenge Matches

Thirteen teams from the Liberty Conference in D1A, as well as AIC, will assemble this weekend at Fairfield University for a series of Challenge matches.

The Liberty Conference Challenge is just a way for teams to wrap up the fall. The Liberty teams said at the beginning of the fall that they would not pursue a playoff spot in the spring. Iona is playing Saint Mary's in California, and 13 of the remaining 16 Liberty teams are playing in Fairfield.

Listen to Stony Brook Head Coach Jerry Mirro discuss why this works for his team on the Miss Pass show on FloRugby.

AIC, which didn't get voted in to the D1AA playoffs as an independent, was invited to round out the group.

The teams have been matched up based on their records, and here's how the schedule rounds out:




Kickoff Time

Delaware vs Tufts 9:00 AM EST
UMass vs StonyBrook 10:40 AM EST

HS Super 7s: NY vs CT

12:20 PM EST
Albany vs Fairfield 1:40 PM EST
Syracuse vs URI 3:20 PM EST
Binghamton vs UConn 5:00 PM EST
AIC vs Fordham 6:40 PM EST
Northeastern vs Cortland 8:20 PM EST

As you can see, there is aso a long-form 7s game involving HS players from New York and Connecticut.
