BIG EAST fall sports schedules will not include any non-conference competition.

The BIG EAST Conference and its member institutions have announced updated plans for their six 2020 fall sports; impacting the Liberty field hockey program.

Below are the updated plans for the conference:

  • Due to the unprecedented and continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, BIG EAST fall sports schedules will not include any non-conference competition. 
  • No decision is being made at this time regarding BIG EAST fall sports conference competition and championships.  In the coming weeks, the BIG EAST will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions across the country and in BIG EAST communities. The conference will provide further updates on dates and formats as appropriate. All decisions regarding fall conference competition will continue to be guided first and foremost by the health and safety of BIG EAST campuses and their athletics program participants. Decisions will be made in accordance with NCAA actions and policies.

The sports impacted are: men's and women's soccer, men's and women's cross country, volleyball and field hockey. The BIG EAST's plans for the 2020-21 winter and spring sports seasons remain unaffected at this time.
