TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida State University was scheduled to play Samford University at home on September 19. That won't be happening now.

Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama announced on Friday, Aug. 14 that football, men's and women's cross country, soccer, and volleyball, as well as all non-championship segment sports, will not participate in the nonconference competition this fall.

Samford's decision comes on the heels of Thursday's Southern Conference announcement that all fall league competition has been postponed to the spring of 2021 due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, FSU won against Samford, 36 - 26.
