Mountain West Postpones All 2020 Fall Sports

For the first time in 77 years, Utah State will not be playing football during the fall.

That’s because the Mountain West Conference has postponed all of its fall sports due to health concerns related to COVID-19, a decision that was announced late Monday afternoon. Stadium’s Brett McMurphy was the first to report the impending news and it was confirmed to The Herald Journal before the MW made it official.


Various media outlets have reported, per sources, the Big 10 and Pac-12 will announce the same decision — at least in regard to college football — Tuesday. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
