Norfolk State University, which was scheduled to play its first football game of the season next week, has now decided to opt out of its winter-spring football season because of health concerns linked to the pandemic.
Coach Latrell Scott’s Spartans will move forward with spring prac- tices in March in preparation for the traditional 2021 fall season.
Prior to the decision, NSU was scheduled to play at South Carolina State University on Feb. 20. There was a four-game MEAC schedule to be followed by a MEAC championship game and possible NCAA playoffs.
NSU’s fall 2020 schedule was canceled because of the pandemic.
In 2019, the Spartans were 5-7 overall and 4-4 in the MEAC.
