COVID-19Sources: MEAC won’t play football in 2020
« on: July 16, 2020, 10:59:01 AM »


Add the MEAC to the list of HBCU and FCS conferences who won’t be stepping on the field this season.

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Council of Presidents and Chancellors has decided it will not play football in 2020, sources told HBCU Gameday. 

At least two MEAC schools, North Carolina A&T and Florida A&M, have had student-athletes test positive for COVID-19 since returning to campus in July.

HBCU Gameday has reached out to the conference for comment.

This decision comes one week after the two Division II HBCU conferences, the CIAA and SIAC, announced their decision to shut down football competition for fall 2020. Other FCS conferences, including the Ivy League and the Patriot League, will also sit out fall 2020.

Not surprised.  This virus seems to be going in the wrong direction, but hope there is a turn around soon.
