NSCRO conferences across the country are coming into full gear. Over 100 teams were in action as teams begin to jockey for early playoff position.

Last year’s Challenge Cup runners up, Iowa Central, had a strong start to this season. The tritons reached the century mark for the second time this season with a 102-0 win over St. John’s.

The Tri State Conference has seen some early parity. Monroe College upended last year’s champions New Paltz last week but came up short against Vassar 25-15 on Friday. Vassar fell to Maritime earlier this year in a close battle. All three teams have a strong shot of coming out on top.

In the MARC Conference, Bucknell continues to lead the way. The Bison moved to 3-0 with a 65-33 victory over Penn State-Berks. Susquehanna is right on their tale however, at 2-0.

Paul Smith and Alfred currently lead the way in Upstate New York with the former leading the North and the latter leading the West. Paul Smith upended Potsdam 49-7 and Alfred bested Ithaca 41-31.

In the NERFU, defending conference champions and Champions Cup and final four participants, Tufts are no longer in the conference. Things are wide open and several teams are filling the void. Bowdoin and Colby are both 2-0 to start the year. Colby has put up over 50 points in each of its first two games and Bowdoin knocked off defending playoff team Maine-Orono this week. In fact, Orono is struggling to start this season, having fallen to 0-2 with the loss.
