A new three-division conference is being formed for the 2017-18 DIA college season, with an eye toward localizing certain competitions and keeping teams that want to play only in the fall together.
The top six teams in the Empire Conference are playing the top six teams in the ECRC Saturday in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Well is it settled after the regular season is over? Quite possibly.
The Empire Conference season ended with three games this weekend, and still most of the league with hope of making the conference final. League-leaders Binghamton lost, but got bonus points for four tries and a close loss, and that was enough to keep Binghamton in front.
Binghamton University hasn't clinched a top-two spot in the Empire Conference, but they are as close as possible.
