Drake University will only play conference games for the upcoming 2020 football season.
The Pioneer Football League announced that teams in the conference will begin on a conference only schedule not before September 26th.
This means the Bulldogs won't play three games against Black Hills State, North Dakota State, and Dixie State.
Statement from the Pioneer Football League:
"The Pioneer Football League’s Presidents Council has determined PFL fall schedules will not include any non-conference competition and, if conducted, a conference-only schedule will not begin before September 26. The Council will vigilantly monitor national developments, ensuring the league’s plans continue to be supported by current medical evidence and guidance. It is the Council’s intent to ensure the health and welfare of student-athletes and the communities in which they live."
