The Minutemen announced the cancellation of their 2020 football season on Aug. 11 due to concerns surrounding the pandemic but later reversed course. On Sept. 21, the school said it would play a limited number of games to be announced as they are scheduled. ___ The National Football Foundation's annual awards dinner in New York on Dec. 8 has been postponed because of the coronavirus.

Plans for honoring the 2020 College Football Hall of Fame Class will be announced at a later date. ___ A second event in the Grand Prix of Figure Skating - the Internationaux de France in Grenoble - has been canceled. After the French government last week enacted a curfew in the area because of the pandemic, the French federation decided on Monday the event scheduled for Nov. 13-15 was no longer viable.
