Stony Brook upends spring football season after opponents cancel games due to COVID-19 issues


Stony Brook University’s spring football season is over earlier than expected.

This comes as the Seawolves’ last two opponents, the University of New Hampshire and the University of Rhode Island, both canceled their seasons due to COVID-19 issues.

Stony Brook released broke the news today on Facebook with the following statement:

For the uninitiated, the Seawolves, like other FCS programs, postponed their 2020-21 season to this spring.

The team was scheduled to play in a shortened six-game regular season, which started in March and was supposed to run until mid-April.

The program made it clear to GreaterPortJeff that this springtime season was one-time-only and will return to its normal season this summer.

In the four games that SBU was able to play, the team went 1-3. The squad’s lone win came in its last game, where the Seawolves toppled longtime rival the University of Albany, 21-7.
