Indiana State University has postponed its football season out of concern for safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic and after consulting with the student-athletes.
It is still possible ISU will play football in the spring.
"This is a decision we had to make, especially after hearing from our student-athletes," ISU President Deborah J. Curtis said. "We had two non-conference games that would have been beneficial financially. But now and always, our primary concern is the health and safety of the student-athletes."
The Missouri Valley Football Conference on Friday night announced that the league's President's Council voted to postpone the conference season but allow up to three non-conference games in the fall.
