SEC sports will not return this spring, the conference announced on Tuesday.

This includes spring football and pro day, in addition to regular season and championship games for in-season sports.

“This is a difficult day for all of us, and I am especially disappointed for our student-athletes,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said in a statement on Tuesday. “The health and well-being of our entire conference community is an ongoing priority for the SEC as we continue to monitor developments and information about the COVID-19 virus.”

The SEC had previously suspended all sporting activity until April 15, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Texas A&M football released a statement via Twitter in response to the news. The Maroon & White spring game was scheduled for April 18.

“We look forward to having our student-athletes in all sports back to campus as soon as possible and when it is safe for their return,” the statement said.
