On Tuesday, there were reports that Alabama and TCU had discussed the possibility of playing each other in Week 1 of any potential 2020 season.

That’s because the state of California continues to have strict lockdown guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. TCU is currently scheduled to play Cal in Week 1 and Alabama is set to take on USC in Dallas in Week 1, but those games might not be able to happen.

In fact, FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd said 2 of his sources have told him the Trojans and Tide aren’t going to be able to play due to lockdown protocols in LA County:

Could the Pac-12 play football in the spring? It will be important for the conference to play football if at all possible for financial reasons.

But, what would happen if the other 4 Power 5 conferences play this fall? There’s a lot that needs to be sorted out at the moment.
