Rhode Island will join UAlbany in NEC

Not quite sure how this slipped by (well, I am actually - it's just one of those weeks), but Rhode Island will join the Northeast Conference for football in 2013. That's the conference that the University at Albany plays in.

"We are thrilled to welcome the University of Rhode Island to the Northeast Conference football family," NEC Commissioner Noreen Morris said in a statement. "The Conference is united in its commitment to the long term growth of NEC football.

The Rams will remain an associate football member of the Colonial Athletic Association in 2011 and 2012.

With the addition of Rhode Island, the NEC will up to 10 in 2013. The schools are Bryant, Central Connecticut, Monmouth, Robert Morris, Sacred Heart, Saint Francis (Pa.), Wagner, UAlbany and Duquesne.
