Missouri Valley Football Conference Commissioner Patty Viverito said today her league is cooperating with the Summit League football study.
North Dakota State is a member of both conferences.
“It’s not secret that the Summit conference recently announced its intention to study football," Viverito said. "Given that three Missouri Valley Football Conference teams are also members of the Summit conference, it’s important that this study be conducted cooperatively and transparently.
“I can assure you that Summit commissioner Tom Douple and I have pledged to do exactly that. We expect to study a variety of membership models and formats over the next few months, which will include short-term and long-term options.”
