The Mid-American Conference has postponed all scheduled fall contests, including the MAC championships, because of the coronavirus pandemic.
This means Ball State University will not have fall sports this season.
Ball State University President Geoffrey Mearns, said it’s important to prioritize the health and safety of student-athletes.
“Unlike campus residential and academic settings, the field of competition can limit proper physical distancing and creates conflicts with the use of masks or face coverings,” said Mearns. “I respect the advice from our medical experts who have advised that this postponement is currently the safest path forward.”
Ball State will be looking to bring sports back for the 2021 Spring semester.
The MAC postponement also means the Notre Dame vs Western Michigan game scheduled for Sep. 19, is also cancelled.
