Missouri Valley announces spring 2021 schedule

The Missouri Valley on Thursday became the third FCS conference to unveil its spring 2021 schedule.

Similar to the SWAC and Southland's schedules, this will be an 8-game schedule played over nine weeks, from the weekend of Feb. 20 to April 17.

Unlike the Southland, the Missouri Valley did not experience any spring opt-outs. All 11 Missouri Valley teams will compete in the spring, meaning each team will miss two others. On that note, a congratulations are in order to Southern Illinois and Western Illinois, as neither team has to deal with North Dakota State until the fall.

Speaking of the Bison, they will play the Missouri Valley's only fall game. It will be, essentially, a showcase game for quarterback Trey Lance and any other Bison draft prospects, going down next Saturday against Central Arkansas at the Fargodome.

The full MVFC schedule can be found below.
