The DII College landscape is starting to stratify with the top teams in each conference staking their claims. A number of teams are on a collision course with division rivals as they progress deep into the season.

The Southern conference, northern division is down to two teams who have a realistic chance of winning the division. Furman continues to dominate racking up another 50-point margin. UNC-Charlotte remains right on their heels, however, and the two teams are set to square off late in the season.

Rugby Northeast may be the deepest conference in the country. Norwich and Middlebury continue to dominate and the winner will most likely take home the title. Bentley, who won the conference last season, tied Southern Connecticut this weekend. Norwich handled Southern Connecticut early in the year so it seems this conference is down to two.

In the WIIL conference the scheduled was light but notable. Northern Michigan was the big winner. Northern Michigan upended UW-Milwaukee and will move up in the rankings this week.

Two undefeated teams met in Upstate New York and the game did not disappoint. Oswego and Geneseo were both 3-0 and Oswego outlasted Geneseo 49-47 in an absolute shootout. Oswego is looking strong this season and is making a strong case to be in the top 25. Look for these teams, however, to meet again in the post season.

Montana State moved to 4-0 with a win over Colorado Mesa. They are headed for a showdown with Western State later this year.
