Conference and program changes

Following an NCAA rule change passed in January 1991, which required Division I schools to conduct all sports at the Division I level by 1993, multiple Division I universities were forced to move their football programs from the Division III level. As such, teams from Butler University, the University of Dayton, Drake University, the University of Evansville, Valparaiso University, the University of San Diego, Jacksonville University, Creighton University, Bradley University, Davidson College, Georgetown University, Marist College, Canisius College, Duquesne University, Fairfield University, Iona College, St. John's University, St. Peter's University, and Siena College. Many of these teams became football members of non-scholarship Division I FCS football leagues like the Pioneer Football League, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, the Patriot League, and the Big South Conference.
