BIG EAST Announces Fall Sports Update

Due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the BIG EAST Conference and its member institutions have announced that 2020 fall sports schedules will not include any non-conference competition.

The announcement has no impact on the 2020 UConn football schedule as any such decisions will be made by UConn independently. UConn will continue to explore possible scenarios for the 2020 season.

No decision has been made at this time regarding BIG EAST fall sports conference competition and championships. In the coming weeks, the BIG EAST will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions across the country and in BIG EAST communities and will provide further updates on dates and formats as appropriate.

All decisions regarding fall conference competition will continue to be guided first and foremost by the health and safety of BIG EAST campuses and their athletics program participants and will be made in accordance with NCAA actions and policies.

The sports affected are: men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, cross country and field hockey. The BIG EAST’s plans for the 2020-21 winter and spring sports seasons remain unaffected at this time.
