PEMBROKE – UNCP racked up more than 400 yards of total offense for the second-straight game, while limiting Saint Paul’s to just 36 yards through the air on 3-of-13 passing, to key a 37-0 blanking of the visiting Tigers Saturday evening at Grace P. Johnson Stadium.

The defense provided the first score of the second half as well when Jamaral Rease(Grimsley HS) forced SPC quarterback Alwan Lee to fumble the ball away in his own end zone, and James Alexander alertly pounced on the ball to make the score 27-0.

    is campbell a D3 school?

  • Andy said,

    Campbell is a Division I Subdivision non-scholarship football playing university and a member of the Pioneer League…..

    Here’s the basics on the Pioneer League:
    The 2009 season marks the 17th year for the Pioneer Football League – the nation’s only non-scholarship NCAA Football Championship Subdivision conference that offers football as its only sport.

    The league will expand to 10 members in 2009 as Marist College begins conference play. In addition, the Pioneer Football League will participate for the third consecutive year in the Gridiron Classic, a postseason championship game which pits the PFL champion against the Northeast Conference champion.

    The PFL is one of only two conferences that sponsor football as its only sport (the Missouri Valley Football Conference being the other). However, the PFL is a truly national conference with members on each coast and throughout the nation’s heartland. The league still retains four of its charter members – Butler University, the University of Dayton, Drake University and Valparaiso University, plus the University of San Diego (joining in 1992) – which were joined in 2001 by Davidson College, Jacksonville University and Morehead State University. Campbell University joined the PFL in 2008, its first season of intercollegiate football.

    The Pioneer League plays at the D1 level but does not give athletic scholarships…then how is that different than D3? Is this the case with other sports at Campbell as well (basketball, baseball, etc.)? What defines D1 vs. D2 vs. D3?
