This will be the first fall in 15 years that ESPN reporter Allison Williams will not be sideline reporting for college football games.
The move comes as Williams announced she will not be receiving the COVID vaccine as she hopes to grow her family.
Williams made the announcement on Twitter Thursday:
This will be the first fall in the last 15 years I won’t be on the sidelines for College Football.— Allison Williams (@AllisonW_Sports) September 9, 2021

Pre-empting White House diktats, Disney (which owns ESPN) announced a vaccine mandate for their employees in August.
Williams covered college basketball and football for the sports network.
