No MEAC autobid this season to the FCS playoffs.
« on: April 07, 2021, 06:45:20 PM »
It’s official per the MEAC, no MEAC autobid this season to the FCS playoffs.

“The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) has informed the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) that it will not meet the criteria to maintain its automatic qualifier (AQ) because the three programs, Howard, Delaware State and South Carolina State, playing this spring will not play each other as required by the NCAA/FCS.
 
The Bison and Bulldogs will not play each other this spring due to the District of Columbia’s restrictions on travel to and from the state of South Carolina. The cancellation of Howard’s contest against South Carolina State, originally scheduled for this coming Saturday, April 10, prevented the three teams from playing each other, as required to be eligible for the FCSs AQ.”

The issue isn't that Howard couldn't got to SC, it's the 2 week quarantine the entire team and coaching staff would have to do upon returning. And the testing.

And SCST can't travel there for the same thing.

And now SCST suffers because at 2-1 an at-large big is unlikely

So Delaware State was able to quarantine?

Delaware might not have the same restrictions.  Last fall Pennsylvania had the same restrictions for South Carolina. 
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.
