SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - All sports at Austin College have been canceled for the Fall semester including football.

The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Presidents Council announced on Thursday that NCAA intercollegiate competition will not occur during the Fall 2020 season due to health and safety concerns stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes volleyball, cross country and soccer at Austin College.

Football was canceled just hours later as a part of the Southern Athletic Association.

Spring sports remain on the schedule for the Roos. Austin College is leaving open the possibility of playing shortened seasons for the Fall sports later in the school year.
