Pioneer Football League announces 2020 Football Season will not be played

Fri, Aug 7, 2020 10:03 am

 

This Will Be The First Fall UD Will Not Play Football Since 1945

ST. LOUIS – The Pioneer Football League’s (PFL) Presidents Council has announced the league’s schools will not conduct conference competition in fall 2020. The PFL membership is spread from coast-to-coast and throughout the Midwest which poses challenges related to team travel, as well as difficulties meeting applicable state, local and institutional health requirements and COVID-19 mitigation strategies.

 

James M. Danko, President of Butler University and Chair of the PFL, shared the following observations. “The Presidents and Athletic Directors of our respective universities made this very difficult decision after extensive deliberations and consideration of many factors. We recognize that our student-athletes will be disappointed, but our highest priority is the health and safety of all those involved in our athletic programs. Ultimately, the risks of proceeding are simply too high especially to ensure the safety of our students.”

 

Recognizing competition is an integral part of the student-athlete’s educational experience, the PFL is committed to exploring meaningful opportunities and experiences for football student-athletes this academic year, if this can be done reasonably and safely.

 

The Flyer football team, as is the case with the rest of UD’s sports programs, will train and practice this fall, pursuant to local and campus health guidelines and NCAA practice protocols.

 

This is the first fall since 1945 that Dayton will not play a football season.  Interestingly, the team practiced but did not play competitively that year as well.

South Carolina Football announces Auburn & Ole Miss added to 2020 Schedule

 

 

8/7/2020 | Football

 

Auburn and Ole Miss have been added to the South Carolina Gamecocks’ 10-game conference-only 2020 football schedule, the Southeastern Conference announced today. The Tigers will visit Williams-Brice Stadium, while the Gamecocks will travel to Oxford, Miss., to face the Rebels.

“I’m excited about adding two teams that are very familiar to me personally,” said South Carolina head football coach Will Muschamp. “We will travel to Oxford and have Auburn come to Columbia. I have great respect for both programs. They both have great coaching staffs.”

The Gamecocks have dropped 10 of their 12 previous matchups with Auburn, with another ending in a tie in a series that dates back to 1930. The Gamecocks lone win in the series was by a 16-14 count in 1933 when the game was played in Birmingham. The teams last met in 2014, a 42-35 Auburn win on the Plains. Coach Muschamp worked as Auburn’s defensive coordinator from 2006-07 and again in 2015, then under current Tiger head coach Gus Malzahn.

Carolina has had better success against Ole Miss, splitting 16 games evenly in a series that dates back to 1947. The Gamecocks have won the last three games in the series, including a wild 48-44 decision in Oxford in 2018, the last time the two teams met. The Gamecocks are 3-3 overall when playing at Ole Miss, winning both of their last two trips to Vaught Hemingway Stadium. The Rebels are led by first-year head coach Lane Kiffin.

The Gamecocks’ 10-game schedule features five teams ranked among the top-13 in the Coaches’ preseason poll, with Georgia (No. 4), LSU (5), Florida (8), Auburn (11) and Texas A&M (13) on the docket.

The Gamecocks 2020 home schedule now consists of games against Auburn, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas A&M. The road slate features trips to Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Dates of all games are expected to be announced in the next two weeks. The first game will be scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26. The SEC Championship game will be held in Atlanta on Saturday, Dec. 19.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (August 6, 2020)

 

Junior was 2019 Consensus All-American, Butkus-Fitzgerald Big Ten Linebacker of the Year and Butkus Award Finalist

 

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State junior linebacker Micah Parsons has elected to forgo the 2020 season to prepare for the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.

 

“I’d like to begin by saying thank you,” said Parsons. “Penn State’s given me an opportunity of a lifetime to achieve my dreams and aspirations. I have made connections with my teammates that will last a lifetime, and for that I will be forever be grateful. Nittany Nation took a chance and welcomed a kid from Harrisburg in with open arms, stood by me and supported me.

“Without Coach Franklin and Coach Pry, as well as the entire Penn State coaching staff, I would not be where I am today. You all allowed me to grow into the young man I have always wanted to be. Before arriving on campus, I was only a kid from Harrisburg with a dream.

 

“My dream was to receive a degree from a prestigious institution and prepare for an opportunity to play at the highest level, the NFL. My opportunity has finally arrived. As I considered all of my options for the 2020 season, I decided I needed to make a choice not for myself, but my son and those dearest to me. While I felt safe with the health and safety standards set as we returned to Penn State for workouts, the potential risk to the health and wellbeing of my son far outweighed my urge to play football this season. Therefore, I’ve decided to opt out of the 2020 season and prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft. I will be graduating early and receiving my degree in December. I’ve kept my word to Coach Franklin because leaving Penn State with my degree in hand was my main goal when I stepped on campus.”

 

“I am unbelievably proud of Micah and appreciative of how he has represented our football program, this University and the state of Pennsylvania,” said Penn State head coach James Franklin. “His work ethic enabled him to become a Consensus All-American in 2019, the first sophomore to be the Big Ten Linebacker of the Year last fall and to be considered one of the top, returning defensive players in the country this season. What’s more impressive than his work ethic on the field is his work ethic in the classroom. He is on track to graduate in December and was also on pace to become an Academic All-Big Ten selection this fall. My job as the head coach of Penn State is to help everybody in our organization achieve their dreams and Micah is a great example. Micah and I have had many conversations about his NFL aspirations throughout the recruiting process and his time at Penn State; he is now ready to pursue those opportunities. I fully support Micah, his decision to opt out of the 2020 season and declare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Again, I couldn’t be more proud of him and I am excited to see him play on Sundays in 2021.”

 

Parsons was named a Consensus All-American in 2019, the 43rd in program history and the first since Saquon Barkley in 2017. He was voted the Butkus-Fitzgerald Linebacker of the Year in the Big Ten, becoming the first sophomore in Big Ten history to win the award. The Harrisburg native was additionally a finalist for the Butkus Award and a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award.

 

During the 2019 campaign, Parsons finished the season with 10 or more tackles in three straight games and six of the final seven games. He ranked fifth in the Big Ten averaging 8.4 tackles per game, while ranking third in the league and sixth nationally forcing 0.31 fumbles per contest.

 

In the Cotton Bowl victory over Memphis, Parsons tied a career high with 14 tackles with 10 of those coming in the first half. He registered a career-high three tackles for loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles against the Tigers. He reached the 100-tackle mark, becoming the first Penn State player since Marcus Allen in 2016 to reach that feat. He finishes his career tied for seventh all-time at Penn State with six forced fumbles.

 

Penn State opens the 2020 football season Sept. 5 at Beaver Stadium against Northwestern. The Nittany Lions open preseason practice Friday, Aug. 7.
