UPDATE: Missouri Valley Football Conference will not conduct conference play this fall


UPDATE: In an official announcement at 8 p.m. this evening, Missouri Valley Football Conference officials have officially announced they will not conduct any conference games this fall.

The league will host an eight-game spring schedule, with the expectation that the season will finish with the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs.

The conference's Presidents Council says competition in the fall will come at the individual institution's discretion.

ORIGINAL STORY: Reports say the Missouri Valley Football Conference will announce the postponement of its traditional fall football season today.

Bison Report's Ross Uglem, on Twitter, says the conference will attempt to move the season to spring 2021. The move comes following the announcement earlier today that the Pioneer Football League and Big Sky Conference both announced they were postponing the fall season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, the NCAA announced each individual division would be responsible for making its own decisions regarding fall championships. NCAA's Division II and III announced they were canceling fall championships, while the Division I Board of Directors set an August 21 deadline for determining the status of their fall championships.
