The DII college season is now in full swing and in some cases playoff positions are starting to take shape. Here is a breakdown of what happened across the country in DII.
The Tri-State has been plagued by a myriad of forfeits but several teams are raising their hands to come out of the conference. Last year’s winner RPI and William Paterson sit atop the north division and are odds on favorite to win the division and the conference. William Paterson is currently 3-0.
In the south, the College of New Jersey has surprised people this year and currently sit at 2-0. A thrilling 40-38 victory over Hofstra this weekend kept them undefeated.
The conference is still feeling the effects of Hurricane Florence. UNC-Wilmington and several other schools are still not back in session, sending the schedule into mayhem. Several weekends may force teams to play multiple games in order to get everything in.
UNC-Charlotte and Furman both won big again and an October 6 date between the two should highlight who wins the Western division.
The East is still up for grabs due to the hurricane.
RIT has gotten off to a hot start in this four team conference and is 2-0. The technology school has won both its games by a combined nine points over Buffalo State and Geneseo, respectively.
New England Wide
Vermont is making a statement in its first season in the New England Wide Conference. After blitzing Hartford last week, the Catamounts defeated Coast Guard 55-0. Quinnipiac also moved to 2-0 with a win over Hartford.
Both divisions in this conference have strong leaders. In the North Whitewater picked up a forfeit win and Northern Michigan moved to 2-0 with a win over UW-Platteville.
In the south, three teams remain undefeated. Marquette picked up another lopsided win and now have a whopping 214 points scored to three against. Illinois state kept pace with another convincing victory while Northern Iowa had the weekend off.
Saint Louis moved to 3-0 with a win and in all likelihood it will come down to a battle with Principia for the conference crown.
Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakota State both cruised to expected victories. This conference will once again be a showdown between these two strong sides.
One game took place this weekend. Eastern Kentucky defeated Western Kentucky 55-5.
