D-III power St. Thomas to join PFL in 2021

(Stats Perform) - The University of St. Thomas has been too good for the Division III Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference - literally - so it's jumping to Division I.

St. Thomas will make the move upward next July after receiving acceptance from the NCAA Division I Council on Wednesday. The Tommies, who requested and received a waiver to bypass D-II, will become the 10th member of the Summit League and also join the Pioneer Football League - a sport not sponsored by the Summit League. Presbyterian was previously accepted into the non-scholarship PFL for next year, which means the membership will grow to 11 programs.

St. Thomas, located in St. Paul, Minnesota, is about to spend its final academic year in the MIAC. Although it was a founding member of the conference, the other members voted the Tommies out in May 2019, citing athletic competitive parity.
