The SEC has announced that all remaining regular season conference and non-conference competitions are cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-20 athletic year, including all remaining SEC championship events, due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

In addition, all spring football games are cancelled, and there will be no pro days conducted by SEC schools, which is a tough break for NFL hopefuls looking to showcase themselves to teams prior to April’s draft.

“This is a difficult day for all of us, and I am especially disappointed for our student-athletes,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey in a press release. “The health and well-being of our entire conference community is an ongoing priority for the SEC as we continue to monitor developments and information about the COVID-19 virus.”

Other athletics activities, including team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, whether required or voluntary, remain suspended through at least April 15.
