ORONO – The Colonial Athletic Association is expected to announce Friday that its member schools, which includes UMaine, will not play a conference football schedule this fall.
The impending CAA announcement does not mean the conference season is outright canceled, but if the CAA fields a conference schedule it will not be during the fall semester. It is unsure at this time whether the conference will play in the spring.
Multiple reports seem to indicate that the announcement, planned for Friday, will allow CAA teams to fill an independent schedule if the NCAA fields an FCS championship on schedule this school year.
You can hear from CAA commissioner Joe D’Antonio on Friday on ABC 7 and Fox 22, starting with the ABC 7 News at 6.
This story will be updated as more details become available.
