Two divisions will be set in the conference with teams playing one another in that respective division. The FCS playoffs are scheduled to begin on Saturday April 24th. The first opponent and kickoff date for UAlbany is still to be determined.

In regards to the conference's COVID protocoal CAA commissioner Joe D'Antonio said the following

 Each member institution, as well as the conference office, has additional protocols that must be finalized and approved in order to ensure a safe return to the field. Our goal in creating this unique scheduling format was to implement a competitive model while also trying to reduce the risks associated with travel as much as we could.
