NCAA DII and DIII pulls the plug on fall championships
UNDATED (AP) – NCAA President Mark Emmert tells The Associated Press that whether college sports – and more specifically major college football – can play through the coronavirus pandemic is likely to be determined not by the association or even conferences but on school-by-school basis.
Another hectic day in college sports news started with UConn canceling its football season before the Big Ten released its revised schedule for the coming season. Games are just a month away.
The NCAA Board of Governors handed off any decision on whether to hold championships for fall sports such as soccer and lower-level football to each division. Divisions II and III quickly pulled the plug. As for Division I, plans for a season are methodically falling into place but with tempered optimism.
