By SPECIAL TO THE SUN-SENTINEL,

The presidents of the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges (MACC) met Friday, July 24, and voted to delay the start of the 2020 fall football season to Oct. 1.

The 2020 football season will consist of a six-game regular season with divisional play only and will conclude with a playoff.

In a statement, the association said, "The MACC will continue to evaluate COVID-19 and its impact on our student-athletes."
