The Mid-American Conference (MAC) has postponed all fall sports scheduled this season, including football, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The conference will also postpone MAC championships.
"The Council of Presidents unanimously voted to take this action with the health and safety of its student-athletes, coaches and communities as it top priority," the MAC said in a statement Saturday. "It is the intention of the membership to provide competitive opportunities in these sports during the the spring semester of 2021."
Seven sports — men's and women's cross country, field hockey, football, men's soccer, women's soccer and women's volleyball — are affected. No decision on winter sports has been made.
Some context: The MAC is the first conference from NCAA's top tier Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) to postpone its football season.
