LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) - The Jayhawks will look for a new opening match-up after the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) suspended fall sports, nixing KU’s Sep. 5 game against New Hampshire.

Director of Athletics Jeff Long says they hope to fill the schedule gap with a different opponent.

“KU, along with the Big 12, are continuing our efforts to play a full non-conference and conference football schedule this fall,” Long said. “We have begun exploring all opportunities to fill the opening on our schedule that was created by New Hampshire and will provide an update when available.”

The CAA’s announcement comes after several other conferences have opted to cancel non-conference games or eliminate fall sports altogether.

“I fully support Jeff Long and the Big 12 Conference as they continue to explore our options for the fall season and look forward to adding a new opponent to our schedule,” head coach Les Miles said.
