The University of Connecticut has announced it's canceling its 2020 college football season over the COVID-19 pandemic making them the first major college program to do so...

"After receiving guidance from state and public health officials and consulting with football student-athletes, we've decided that we will not compete on the gridiron this season," UConn athletic director David Benedict said in a statement.

"The safety challenges created by COVID-19 place our football student-athletes at an unacceptable risk."

"Ultimately, the student-athletes would rather preserve their year of eligibility with an eye to competing under more typical circumstances during the 2021 season."
