Football is returning in the Western Athletic Conference, this time at the Championship Subdivision level. The league announced this week it would add four schools from the Southland Conference and one from the Big Sky to bring its membership to 13. The five new members will join Dixie State and Tarleton State in a WAC football League.
Pro Football Focus spotlights the Cowboys' defensive deficiencies and lists several top college prospects who could help in 2021.
National powers Montana and Montana State announced jointly that neither team will participate in the Big Sky's spring season and instead will hold practices and seek to play up to two nonconference games. Portland State also announced it was dropping from the Big Sky schedule and will seek a pair of nonconference games in April. Sacramento State announced in October it won't play until this fall, which means the Big Sky spring season will include nine teams if no more pull out before the schedule begins on Feb. 27.
