SIAC and CIAA Suspend Fall Sports; 12 Additional Games With FCS Opponents Canceled

In a day and week of constant bad news, two Division II conferences delivered some more. The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) and Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) jointly announced the suspension of fall sports for 2020.

Both conferences are willing to consider a move of football to the spring of 2021 but will ultimately decide if that route is feasible at a later date.

SIAC and CIAA teams were scheduled to play a total of 14 FCS teams in 2020. Morehouse College, a member of the SIAC, previously canceled its 2020 season last month.

The full list is below and includes the previously canceled Morehouse-Southern and Central StateHoward matchups.
