ASHLAND, Ore--- The SOU football program will be playing four spring games, for now. That is per the latest Frontier Conference schedule that was released on Thursday. The conference says the 4-game slate will meet the latest minimum requirements for NAIA Championship Series eligibility.
SOU will open its schedule with back-to-back home games. The Raiders will take the College of Idaho on March 20, and Carroll on March 27. Then, the Raiders will play back-to-back road games against Rocky Mountain on April 3, and Eastern Oregon on April 10.
Normally, the Frontier schedule plays 10 games for each school. However, 2020-21 has not been a normal year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Last August, the NAIA postponed the NAIA Championship Series until April 17. As of right now, the national championship game is still set to be played on May 10.
