2020 football season to have delayed start

By:Lucas Calvert

JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Association of Community Colleges (MACC), a group composed of the state’s 15 community college presidents, has confirmed a recommendation from the colleges’ athletic directors to postpone the start of the 2020 football season and shorten the season by one game due to concerns over COVID-19. The change will eliminate the first game of the season, originally set for Thursday, August 27 for all schools, and push the start date to Thursday, September 10.

The Wolves’ season will now kick off with a home contest against the Itawamba Indians in Wesson on September 10 at 6:30 p.m., before heading into South Division play. The playoffs will still remain as a four-team system featuring the North and South Division winners and runners up.

Updates on the season will be provided as the MACC, MACJC conference office, and NJCAA work through the developing coronavirus and COVID-19 situation.
