Towson, MD (Sports Network) - The Colonial Athletic Association has suspended
Towson senior free safety Jordan Dangerfield from a critical conference game at
New Hampshire on Saturday as a result of his two unsportsmanlike conduct
penalties against Rhode Island last weekend.
Nineteenth-ranked Towson (6-4) and seventh-ranked UNH (8-2) are both alive for
the CAA title and its automatic qualifying bid to the FCS playoffs.
Dangerfield's suspension is the result of two plays in Towson's 41-10 win over
Rhode Island last Saturday. CAA commissioner Tom Yeager and CAA football
coordinator of officials Jim Maconaghy reviewed the video of the plays, along
with the National Coordinator of Football Officials and his advisory panel,
before handing out the suspension, which was announced Thursday.
The three-year starter, from Royal Palm Beach, Fla., has made 69 tackles this
season - second on the team - with a team-leading six pass breakups.
"It is unfortunate for our team that we will have to play such an important and
historic game without our All-American safety Jordan Dangerfield," Towson coach
Rob Ambrose said. "With that being said, I have great confidence that our team
will rise to the challenge once again as they have continued to support each
other through adversity all season long."
