The Valparaiso University football team matched a program record based on its performance in the classroom during the 2023 fall semester.

The Beacons placed 64 individuals on the Pioneer Football League Academic Honor Roll, which was released by the league office on Thursday. This matched the team’s record-setting total of 64 from the 2022 season. This represents the 11th consecutive campaign that Valpo has boasted 40 or more PFL Honor Roll members.
