As other Power 5 conferences slowly start to bring players back to campus next month, the Pac-12 will take its time, due in large part to some of the member states’ continuing strict quarantine orders.

However, during an appearance on “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Tuesday, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott expressed confidence that the conference will play this fall.

He also addressed the need to have uniform safety protocols in place across college football, especially during nonconference play when teams will be traveling from different parts of the country:

The Pac-12 has a couple of intriguing matchups with other major conferences, including Alabama-USC in Week 1, Oregon-Ohio State in Week 2 and Colorado-Texas A&M in Week 3.

What sorts of safety precautions will be taken if those games go on as scheduled? That’s what much of the next 3 months will likely be spent figuring out.
