The sports world has been put on hold for the past week due to the COVID-19 outbreak. All operations involving the MLB, MLS, NBA, NHL and NCAA are currently suspended.

Although the last thing that sports fans want is more tough news, it appears there is genuine concern regarding the 2020 college football season.

According to Matt Hayes of Bleacher Report, several Power Five coaches are worried that the coronavirus could eliminate the upcoming season. It would be a tough blow for college football, but this is obviously a fluid situation.

Fortunately for college football, it's still too early to determine if the season will get canceled. The fact that coaches have expressed concern over this matter though shows just how dangerous and long this outbreak may last.

It'd be heartbreaking for fans around the country to go through the fall without college football.

There are so many storylines to unpack, such as LSU defending its national title and Ohio State looking for revenge after a heartbreaking loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal. Hopefully, we have the chance to see them all unfold before our eyes.

All that being said, the main priority is that everyone stays safe and healthy during this time.
