FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The Missouri Valley Football Conference rereleased the 2021 spring schedule Thursday. The league committing to a full 8-game spring league schedule that will culminate the season with the NCAA Division I Football Championship, which begins with games on Saturday, April 24.

The calendar shift is a result of Indiana State opting out of the spring season in early January. The MVFC confirming ten league institutions reaffirmed their dedication to play a full spring schedule starting with league games the weekend of Feb. 19-21.

The revamped schedule features 40 league games over eight-straight weekends (Feb. 19-April 10), holding Saturday, April 17, as a rescheduling window in the event of a postponement. Start times will be announced at a later time.

North Dakota State will still open the season at home on Sunday, February 21 against Youngstown State. Added to their schedule this season is Southern Illinois on February 27. The two were not previously scheduled to play each other in the 2021 spring season.

NDSU will host Youngstown State, Illinois State, North Dakota and South Dakota State during the spring season. They will travel to Southern Illinois, Missouri State, South Dakota and Northern Iowa.
