“This is uncharted territory and the health and safety of our student-athletes and institutions remains our top priority. This decision is aimed to protect from the further spread of COVID-19,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford.

According to the ACC, the decision was made following consultation with the league’s presidents and athletic directors to “mitigate the further spread of COVID-19.”
