Butler, Valpo call off fall football

Another college conference has decided to not play football this fall, affecting two more schools in Indiana.


There will not be a football season for the Butler Bulldogs this year. The Pioneer Football League announced the decision Friday morning, citing challenges for team travel across the Midwest, as well as "difficulties meeting state and local health requirements."


Valparaiso also plays in the Pioneer Football League.


As of now, the only schools in the state planning on playing college football this fall -- out of all levels -- are Notre Dame, IU, Purdue and Ball State.
