Name: Jacksonville University
Well, Not Entirely: JU started as William Porter University in 1934 and then became Jacksonville Junior College in 1935. It took them until 1950 to have a permanent fixed location as a school, and after merging with the Jacksonville College of Music in 1958, the name became the modern and current Jacksonville University in 1959.
Location: Jacksonville, Florida, obviously.
In The News: On Tuesday, Jacksonville announced that they were shuttering their FCS football program. They’ve been a part of the Pioneer League — which does not allow for scholarships for football — since 1998.
