Re: 2020 Fall Athletics Around the Country

Montana, Montana State, and Portland State have withdrawn themselves from spring football games. It sounds like they're going to do a "modified schedule" with the teams doing something like a "scrimmage" against each other after their regular spring practice schedule in April.

Re: Southland/WAC shakeup

And now I'm seeing a rumor saying UTRGV (U of Texas Rio Grande Valley) is looking to start up an FCS team with the goal of hitting the turf in the 2023 season. UTRGV is currently a non-football playing DI member of the WAC.
