The University of Dayton football team will play the 1,000th game in school history on Saturday when the Flyers travel to Northern Indiana to play Valparaiso. Game time is 2 p.m. ET.

Dayton enters the game with an all-time record of 627 wins, 345 losses and 27 ties, the 10th-most wins in FCS football history. UD will become the 34th FCS team to reach 1,000 games.

The Flyers enter the game at 5-3, 3-2 in the Pioneer Football League. The Valparaiso Crusaders are 0-7, 0-4 in the PFL.

Valpo will be trying to end a 21-game losing streak.

Dayton leads to series 18-2 and has won the last seven matchups. Last year the Flyers won 48-14 at home. UD has won eight of the nine games at Brown Field in the Hoosier state.

Dayton Flyers to upgrade football schedule in order to reach playoffs

The Dayton Flyers have always wanted a shot at the schools like Robert Morris and Duquesne, which are a part of the maximum-scholarship Football Championship Subdivision programs that compete for national titles, thinking that they can play a close game and possibly pull off an upset.

In 2010, the Flyers split with two teams from the scholarship Northeast Conference, beating Robert Morris but losing 35-31 at Duquesne.

Robert Morris was in the playoffs last year, winning the NEC’s automatic bid. If the Flyers had beaten Duquesne, they wouldn’t been in the top 20 and the playoffs would’ve been a reality.

Next year, UD will open against Illinois State and in 2013 they’ll open against Youngstown State, both games being on the road.

In those games, Dayton will be out-scholarshipped 63-0.

From 2012 and moving forward, the Flyers are committed to playing scholarship teams from the FCS (formerly Division I-AA) for their three non-conference games in an attempt to get to the postseason playoffs.

The criteria for teams from the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League to earn an at-large berth to the playoffs are to beat two FCS teams that give full rides, win their conference and finish in the Top 20 in the national poll.

In 2010, Dayton missed the top 20 by just a few points at 25th.

In the future, the FCS playoffs will be expanded from 20 to 22 or 24 teams.

Dayton Flyers redshirt senior safety Steve Wirkus is having a good season after three games and he was rewarded for it by the Pioneer Football League. Especially for his performance this past weekend.

Wirkus has been named the PFL Defensive Player of the Week for his role in Dayton’s 24-10 league opening win over Marist on Saturday.

Wirkus intercepted two passes, batted down two more and was in on six tackles (four solo). His big plays came at critical times in the game. His first pass deflection on a third down in the second quarter forced Marist to settle for a field goal which opened the scoring in the game. His second interception was on the Red Foxes’ first offensive play of the second half, setting up Dayton’s third touchdown that made it a two-score game. And he knocked down a pass on 4th-and -4 at the Dayton 18-yard-line, ending Marist’s final scoring threat of the game late in the third quarter.

The Flyers edged Marist in last season’s finale to win their 11th PFL title in the 18 years since the league began.

Wirkus, a Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School graduate, has had an interception in every game and leads FCS football in picks per game (4). The first-year starter also leads Dayton in tackles (23), solo hits (14) and passes batted away (3, tied with Howard Savage).

This Saturday, Wirkus will lead the Flyers on a short trip to Wilberforce, Ohio to play the Central State Marauders. Game time at McPherson Stadium is 1:30 p.m. ET.
