The University of Dayton’s football game against Georgetown on Sept. 12 has been cancelled due to the Patriot League’s decision to suspend all fall sports competition.

As a member of the Patriot League, the Georgetown Hoyas’ match-up against the Flyers will be off (along with the rest of their season), with no announcement made for a re-schedule another year.

This is the second game cancelled for the Flyers, who previously cancelled their Sept. 3 match-up against SEMO.

The Flyers now have just one non-conference game currently scheduled, against Robert Morris on Sept. 19 in Dayton.

With the current trend of college sports adjusting their fall schedules (Big Ten, Pac-12, ACC) or cancelling the fall season outright (Ivy League), the likelihood that the Flyers play a conference-only football season seems more likely with each passing day.
