Fort Wayne, Ind. (WFFT) - The Saint Francis football team has lost a game for its upcoming season.

Lindenwood-Belleville canceled their upcoming football season due to lack of numbers, while the university is preparing to close its undergrad operations following the 2020 spring semester.

Saint Francis was 5-0 against the Lynx, including a 70-0 win in the Cougars' national championship season in 2017.

Reached by phone, coach Kevin Donley told FOX 55 the team will proceed with a nine game schedule for the 2019 season.

Their new home opener will be their homecoming game against Saint Ambrose on September 28th.
