Great West Football loses a member school


The Great West Football Conference, the recently-announced Division I-AA football-only league that SDSU joined last week, lost one of its members Wednesday when St. Mary’s College announced that it was discontinuing its football program.

The California school had been scheduled to play SDSU in Moraga, Calif., on Oct. 2. The elimination of the Gaels from the schedule leaves the Jacks with nine games set for the 2004 gridiron season. The schedule change may allow SDSU to set up a game with fellow conference member Southern Utah.
