(STATS) - Dixie State's first game at the Division I FCS level will be played in-state at Southern Utah on Sept. 5, 2020.
The Trailblazers will be moving up from Division II to join the Western Athletic Conference for the 2020-21 academic year. The WAC doesn't sponsor football, so the program will compete as an FCS independent during the reclassification process.
The first game with Southern Utah is part of a three-year agreement. They will meet again in Cedar City on Sept. 3, 2022 and the third game will be played at Dixie State in St. George on Sept. 7, 2024.
SUU won previous meetings in 2009 and 2010.
