This past Saturday, the University of Saint Francis football team won the NAIA National Championship for the second straight year. The undefeated USF Cougars came into the game at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach riding a 22 game winning streak. 

After winning a national championship in December of 2016, the University of Saint Francis extended Head Coach Kevin Donley’s contract through 2021. Donley’s Cougars haven’t lost a game since.

“Winning one is quite an accomplishment. To do it back to back really kind of puts the university in an elite category.”
