NCAA cancels all Division 1 fall championships: SEC football, College Football Playoff pushing forward
Big news from the NCAA on Thursday as the organization has announced that fall championships governed by the NCAA have been postponed. This news comes on the same day the College Football Playoff announced it is moving forward as scheduled — even without the Big Ten and the Pac-12.
It’s important to note the NCAA does not run the College Football Playoff, so college football remains unimpacted by this decision.
What this means is other men’s and women’s sports won’t have championships this fall. The NCAA will allow the sports affected to go on, it just doesn’t plan on holding championships for these sports.
NCAA President Mark Emmert explained the decision in the video below:
"We cannot, at this point, have fall NCAA championships."
