Following in the footsteps of all other Illinois State Athletics, the ISU football team has been forced to cancel all spring practices and scrimmages. This announcement comes shortly after the NCAA enacted a dead period until April 15.

Football head coach Brock Spack spoke on the cancellation,

“The health, safety and well-being of our players, staff, families and local community is our top priority. There are bigger things than football at stake here," said Spack.
