The Great Northwest Athletic Conference announced Friday it would suspend its fall sports season, leading to the cancellation of Idaho’s football home opener against Western Oregon on Sept. 5 in Moscow, Idaho.
The GNAC, which includes Central Washington, plays at the NCAA Division II level. GNAC teams are a common nonconference opponent for Big Sky teams.
Idaho also had its Sept. 19 nonconference game at Washington State canceled after the Pac-12 announced it would play a conference-only schedule last week.
Scheduling alternatives for both games are being discussed.
