It's been a crazy two years for the Southland Conference, and today they had to release a revised version of the 2022 conference football schedule due to several teams returning to the Southland.

The Southland Conference 2022 football schedule had already been made with the knowledge that Larmar would play out their final year in the WAC and return for the 2023 season and it was an almost foregone conclusion that IWU was headed to the WAC. However, both teams are back as full members of the Southland Conference, so they needed to be added to the conference's football schedules.
