(Stats Perform) - The Ivy League became the first Division I conference to eliminate its fall sports season due to the coronavirus pandemic, although a potential shift of competition to the spring semester remained a possibility Wednesday.
Whether other conferences will follow with similar decisions has grown to be an even bigger issue.
Stakeholders across college sports, especially those in football, have awaited the Ivy's decision while continuing to formalize fall plans. Most conferences intend to have a season, although a number of schedules will be shortened and include less travel. Some Division I schools have canceled various football games, and some Division II and III schools have canceled fall sports already.
