NCAA President Mark Emmert has announced there will be no fall NCAA Championships in 2020. 

Emmert said in a statement, “We cannot now, at this point, have fall NCAA championships because there are not enough schools participating ... The Board of Governors said, ‘If you don’t have half of the schools playing a sport, you can’t have a legitimate championship.’…sadly, tragically, that’s going to be the case this fall, full stop.”

The NCAA does not govern FBS college football, leaving its immediate future still uncertain. Fall sports will still be allowed to train and practice and Emmert is trying to figure out a way for the NCAA to play fall sports in the spring.
