Every school within the SUNY system manages its own athletics program, which greatly varies the level of competition at each institution.
The most prominent SUNY rivalry is between the Albany Great Danes and Binghamton Bearcats. The two both belong to the America East athletic conference. Member schools There are nine schools with full membership All-Time Conference Membership Frequently referred to as the I-88 Rivalry, Binghamton and Albany sit at either end of Interstate 88 (roughly 2. 5 hours apart). Both teams are known to post the highest visitor attendance at either school's athletic events.
SUNY Oswego and SUNY Plattsburgh also share a notable rivalry in Division 3 Hockey, with that game almost always having the SUNYAC regular season title up for grabs.
SUNY Cobleskill and SUNY Delhi rivalry is mainly involving basketball, but has been seen in other meetings between the two schools. They are in fairly close proximity to each other. The SUNY Delhi 2003-2004 basketball season was canceled after a basketball game was called with 48 seconds left after several SUNY Delhi basketball players nearly started a brawl in the Ioro Gymnasium at SUNY Cobleskill on Wednesday February 4th 2004.
SUNY Plattsburgh and SUNY Cortland have developed a competitive rivalry in Division III softball. They've been at the top of the SUNYAC standings in the 2006 and 2007 seasons with Plattsburgh taking the division crown in '06 and Cortland reclaiming the division title in the '07 season. However in both the '06 and '07 seasons, the Cardinals of Plattsburgh have had the last laugh against the Cortland Red Dragons. The Cards ended the Red Dragons' season in 2006 with an extra-innings (10 innings) 4-3 victory on their home turf in the SUNYAC Championship game and again the next season in the NorthEast regional final with a one-sided 10-1 win over Cortland on the Red Dragons' own field. The victory sent the Cardinals to the Division III Softball World Series for the first time in school history.
