RICHMOND, Va. – Senior free safety Jordan Dangerfield of the Tiger football team has been suspended for one game by the Colonial Athletic Association as a result of two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the Tigers’ 41-10 win over the University of Rhode Island last week.

A three-year starter at safety for the Tigers, Dangerfield will not play in Towson’s regular season finale at the University of New Hampshire on Saturday. The Tigers, now 6-4 overall and 5-2 in the CAA, can earn a share of the CAA championship with a win over UNH.

CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager and CAA Football Coordinator of Officials Jim Maconaghy reviewed the video of the two plays, along with the National Coordinator of Football Officials and his advisory panel. The NCAA panel concluded that  Dangerfield’s actions in the Rhode Island game warranted a one-game suspension and the CAA agreed.

 

Commissioner Yeager said, “Upon extensive video review of several plays by the conference office and the NCAA Football officiating panel, Towson senior defensive back Jordan Dangerfield has been suspended for one game by the CAA following unsportsmanlike play in the Tigers’ game against Rhode Island on Nov. 10. Dangerfield will not play in Towson’s upcoming contest at New Hampshire on Nov. 17.”

“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,” said Towson Coach Rob Ambrose. “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.”

A pre-season All-American selection, Dangerfield has made 69 tackles this season, second on the team. He is ranked 16th in the CAA in tackles and has broken up six passes, a mark that leads the team. A two-year co-captain, Dangerfield has made 258 tackles in his career, 11th on Towson’s all-time list.

The Tigers, who have won three games in a row, will face New Hampshire at Cowell Stadium on Saturday at 12 noon. The game will be broadcast back to the Baltimore area on Comcast Sports.
