Ivy League cancels sports for this fall in what could be barometer for college football

The Ivy League will not have sports this fall due to concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, an athlete on an Ivy team confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. That athlete requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of information. That athlete said team members had been told of the decision.

CBS Sports was the first to report that fall sports would not be played. Ivy League officials have been meeting Wednesday. A formal announcement could come Wednesday evening.

This affects football as well as men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, and women’s field hockey and volleyball.
