ACC NetworkThe Big Ten and Pac-12 have canceled their fall sports seasons. The ACC, for now, at least, is standing pat on its decision to proceed with fall sports.

The conference issued the following statement Tuesday in the wake of the announcements from the Big Ten and Pac-12.

“The ACC will continue to make decisions based on medical advice, inclusive of our Medical Advisory Group, local and state health guidelines, and do so in a way that appropriately coincides with our universities’ academic missions. The safety of our students, staff and overall campus communities will always be our top priority, and we are pleased with the protocols being administrated on our 15 campuses. We will continue to follow our process that has been in place for months and has served us well. We understand the need to stay flexible and be prepared to adjust as medical information and the landscape evolves.”
