Sportsline: St. Cloud State saves its football program
St. Cloud State University has preserved its football program ... for now.
The SCSU student body has over-whelmingly approved a $1.74 per credit hour increase in student fees, which will raise $1.3 million for funding the Huskies athletic program.

The student increase will be for three fiscal years starting in 2012.
