The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference announced today that they have added two news teams that will begin play starting with the 2017 season.Dean College from Massachusetts and Alfred State from New York will join the conference that Husson University has played in since it was formed.

The need to add teams came about after Norwich University decided to leave for the New England Men's and Women's Conference and Becker College to the Commonwealth Conference in 2017.

Alfred State has played ECFC schools in the past including Husson who will play them again in 2016 along with Dean College. Husson is 3-1 all-time against Alfred State including a 44-2 win this past season.

The addition of these schools allows the ECFC to retain its automatic qualifier which sends the conference champion to the NCAA national tournament.
