The Mid-American Conference has canceled its fall football due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns, becoming the first FBS conference to opt out.

University at Buffalo fans may be able to see their team play this spring, which is a possibility the conference wants to pursue.

According to sources familiar with the decision, the MAC took a huge financial hit when the Power 5 schools cut non-conference games. Buffalo was originally scheduled to play Ohio State and Kansas State early this fall.
