Yeah BenU should be eligible for conference championships starting next year. They could've gotten at-large bids for the NCAA tournaments I believe.

On the whole adding St. Norbert to the league should up the conference profile a bit in football. SNC will be in the running for one of the favorites in a yearly basis and should make the top of the league more competitive.

On a different note.....what will this move do to the MIAA-NACC Challenge series? Will a NACC team have to sit out of the games to give keep it even or would a random team be pulled into the series each year to even it out?

No inside knowledge here but I think it makes sense for MIAA-NACC to go away. Presuming NACC teams will play 8 league games upon SNC's arrival, that necessitates only two NC games. I doubt NACC teams have much trouble finding nearby NC foes. MIAA games are a hike for many NACC schools anyway.

SNC is already scheduled out with home-and-homes on its NC slate through 2021, so they don't have room for a MIAA-NACC game, unless they break one of those deals.
