ACC and SEC join other Power Five in canceling spring sports

The Atlantic Coast Conference and Southeastern Conference canceled all spring athletic competitions Tuesday due to the coronavirus, joining the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 in putting an end to their sports seasons.

The ACC last week suspended all its athletic activities indefinitely, not long after it canceled it men's basketball tournament. It took the next step Tuesday and shut everything down, putting an end to any possibility of schools holding spring football practice.

A few hours later, the SEC became the last of the Power Five conferences to cancel all spring sports competitions, including spring football games and football pro scouting days. The SEC's suspension of athletic-related activities, including individual and team practices, remains in place through at least April 15.
