The Great Midwest Athletic Conference has announced that fall competition in football, men's soccer, women's soccer, and volleyball will be moved to Spring of 2021.

This affects Kentucky Wesleyan College, which was slated to kick off its 2020 season at Steele Stadium on Saturday September 26th against Lake Erie.

According to a statement, the schools in the GMAC were "ready and eager" to play this fall, they cited recent mandates imposed by the NCAA Board of Governors and chose a path that will "support a meaningful season for the student-athletes in all sports."

This was the second time this summer that the football schedule was changed for Kentucky Wesleyan College.

Earlier in the year, they had to cut out the first three games of the season and start later in the year when the GMAC decided to delay the start of fall sports to September 24th.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
