The Empire Conference continues to be a wild one, as Colgate beat Syracuse to bunch everyone up again.
Syracuse came into this weekend's clash having beaten Stony Brook on the road and moved into 1st. Colgate, for their part, had started with an impressive win and then were shut out by Fordham and lost to Binghamton, as well. And yet, Colgate handed Syracuse a 39-10 defeat.
Well the message from the latest Empire Conference results has backed up Goff Rugby Report’s earlier assertion that this conference will be tough to call.
Defending Empire Conference champs Syracuse edged up-and-coming Fordham this past weekend 20-12 in the opening weekend of conference play.
That result, along with Stony Brook’s 17-15 over SUNY Binghamton and Colgate’s wild 57-36 win over SUNY Brockport, shows that the conference will be a close one this season.
In a game that had a little bit of everything, Notre Dame College held off a determined Syracuse team 33-28 Friday night at the ACRC Bowl Series in Charlotte, NC.
