LEWISBURG - Just days after the Ivy League became the first Division I athletic conference to call off fall sports as the nation continues to grapple with COVID-19, the Patriot League announced it will not host competitive sports this fall.

In addition to Bucknell University, the league includes American, Boston, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh, Loyola, Army and Navy. The mliitary academies compete independently in football. The rest of the league's football teams compete at the FCS level. Fordham and Georgetown football teams compete in the Patriot League. Fall sports also include field hockey, and men's and women's soccer, cross country, golf and tennis.
