NCAA Division III independent football schools


NCAA Division III independent football schools

NCAA Division III independents are four-year institutions that compete in college football at the NCAA’s Division III level, but do so independently of an established College Athletic Conference. These same institutions often compete as members of an intercollegiate athletic conference in other sports. The reason for independent status in football varies among institutions, but it is frequently because the primary athletic conference to which the institution belongs does not sponsor football. Independent programs for Division III:
