An additional 50 games could be canceled or postponed by the decision. 14 non-conference games, which are still eligible to be played, are marked with an asterisk while 36 conference games will be moved to the spring.

Chattanooga’s game at Western Kentucky was scheduled for September 3 but will be moved to a new date while their game against North Alabama will not take place.
Western Carolina is considering non-conference games in November leaving a game against Liberty as its only scheduled fall game.
