The SAC has suspended all athletic events effective immediately

Oklahoma City, OK -Effective immediately, the Sooner Athletic Conference has suspended indefinitely all practices and competitions for athletics programs of its 11 member institutions. The league’s Council of Presidents unanimously reached the decision Thursday afternoon.

With the health, safety, and well-being of student-athletes as a top priority, SAC Presidents view this as the right and necessary step to take relative to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Conference officials will continue to work closely with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), and SAC Presidents intend to communicate frequently in the days ahead to determine when and if the suspension can be lifted.

In considering when and if the suspension can be lifted, Conference officials will look to establish a date when practices can resume, followed by a subsequent date when competitions can commence.
