MAC postpones football to spring

Updated today, the MAC has now cancelled the 2020 Football Season.

I’m sure the calculation was that if they have to basically play conference only they are likely to have fewer headaches and lose less money if they play in the spring. MAC TV money is not very good(which is why they end up playing on Tuesday and Wednesday nights in November on ESPN 2), so it’s not like they were going to bring in much revenue if they played conference only this fall.

It will be interesting to see how many of these conferences actually follow through and play in the spring.
