The NCAA has announced that the Football Championship Series Divison I National Championship game will be played at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, TX., on Saturday, January 5 at 1 p.m. FC Dallas Stadium hosted its first tite game last season when North Dakota State defeated Sam Houston State, 17-6. A sellout crowd of 20,586 was in attendance. This is the second

year of a three-year agreement between the NCAA and FC Dallas Stadium.
Tickets for the game will go on sale later this summer. The game will be televised on ESPN2. The Southland Conference will serve as the host conference again, and the 20-team FCS playoffs will begin on Nov. 24.




University of Montana starting quarterback Jordan Johnson was was expelled from the football program  this past weekend. Internet reports were false. Kevin McRae, the associate commissioner of higher education for communications and human resources in the Montana University System, released a statement on Tuesday on behalf of Montana president Dr. Royce Engstrom confirming Johnson is enrolled in school.
The statement said, "Jordan Johnson is enrolled as a student at the University of Montana. He completed spring semester. He is not enrolled for summer semester or taking summer courses, but he is pre-enrolled for fall semester. He is on the UM football roster, which means he is academically eligible and in 'good standing' as an enrolled student. A student-athlete must be in good standing with the university to be on an athletic roster."
In March, a female Montana student alleged she was sexually assaulted by Johnson and obtained a temporary restraining order against him. No charges have been filed by police, although Johnson and the female student have a civil no- contact agreement. Montana travels to Kidd Brewer Stadium to play Appalachian state on Saturday, September 8.
