There is one more stage before the Northeast names its representative to the DI fall Round of 8. Standings leaders UConn and Boston College will meet on Nov. 7 for the conference final and determine which team will head directly to the national playoffs. The runner-up will move into the play-in round on Nov.
UConn has established a nice lead in the DI Northeast conference, improving to 3-0 after a 48-5 win over Rhode Island last weekend.
The Northeast has concluded week two of DI league play, and UConn has secured the top spot in the standings. The team has celebrated both wins at home and will test itself against 1-0 Rhode Island this weekend.
With the exit of varsity teams AIC, Army, and Norwich, the DI Northeast conference title is for the taking. Boston University opened with a 40-7 win over Northeastern Saturday, and will be gunning for the automatic bid to playoffs with a differently styled squad.
Despite the seven-try spread, Boston did not dominate the entire match.
