The Ivy League is set to make a decision Wednesday on whether it will delay its upcoming school football program until the spring.  It could also opt to shorten the season with just seven games played against conference opponents.

While not viewed as impactful in college football, the decision will still be watched closely.  Back on March 10, the Ivy League presidents were the first to cancel their men's and women's basketball tournaments because of the coronavirus pandemic.  The rest is history as all college basketball ultimately got scrapped.

"We all pay attention to it, just to see what's out there, but I think their model is a little different than our model when it comes to football," West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons told ESPN. He also is the chair of the NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee. "Is it definitely going to impact what we do? As a whole, not necessarily. We have to look at what we're doing with testing and protocols and the safety and well-being of our student-athletes, making sure we're doing the right thing from that aspect of it, to see if we can fill any type of season."

Lyons' statement reflects the general sentiment of athletic directors and conference commissioners interviewed by ESPN about the potential trickle-up effect, should the Ivy League decide to cancel fall sports entirely or postpone them in favor of a spring season, according to ESPN's Heather Dinich.

"I don't think it's going to have much bearing on what we do," said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. "Different part of the country, different approach to college sports and college football. Everyone is looking around the country and taking an interest in what they do, but I don't think it's going to have any bearing on what we do."
