Updates for Football, Soccer, and Volleyball: Since the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Fall Championships and the subsequent decision by the league’s Board of Directors to delay any competition in football, soccer, and volleyball until at least January 1, conference administrators and coaches have worked diligently to evaluate any potential options for meaningful competition in the spring.
