Michigan State is due to host Miami Sept. 26.
No “official” decision has been reached by ACC, sources said, but likely outcome will be league only games based on Big Ten’s announcement https://t.co/DkCZi7W2E1— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) July 9, 2020
The Big Ten also said all student-athletes that choose not to participate in sports during the 2020-21 academic year due to concerns about COVID-19 “will continue to have their scholarship honored by their institution and will remain in good standing with their team.” Other sports affected include men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey and women’s volleyball. The Big Ten’s decision to play only conference opponents would affect 36 scheduled football opponents, 28 from the FBS and eight from the FCS. Six FBS schools — Ball State, Bowling Green, BYU, Central Michigan, UConn and Northern Illinois — are scheduled to play two Big Ten opponents this season.

Miami AD Blake James statement: “I am aware of the announcement made by Big 10 today. While we are disappointed to lose the opportunity to face Michigan State during the 2020 season, we will work with the ACC to best position our program for the upcoming season.”— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) July 9, 2020
