The Ivy League is the first Division I conference to cancel its fall sports season, postponing football and various other sports until at least January of 2021.

"With the information available to us today regarding the continued spread of the virus, we simply do not believe we can create and maintain an environment for the intercollegiate athletic competition that meets our requirements for safety and acceptable levels of risk," so a statement by the Ivy League presidents.
