We’ve all made the “It just means more” jokes after the Southeastern Conference adopted those words years ago but there’s no joke about the importance college football plays to the lives of many not only in the South but around the nation.

According to Dan Patrick, the SEC is doing everything that it can to save the college football season from slipping away after the Big Ten and the Pac-12 have decided to cancel their upcoming football seasons.

Patrick reported the latest on the college football season from a source with knowledge of the situation during his Monday show.

Here is what Patrick shared live on the air after speaking with his source.

“The Big 10 and the Pac-12 will cancel their football seasons (Tuesday),” Patrick said on the air. “The ACC and the Big 12 are on the fence. The SEC is trying to get a delay to get teams join them. The SEC is looking at exclusive TV contracts.”

Patrick then asked a question about the SEC’s commitment to keeping the season together following this news.

“So the SEC might go alone and bring in other schools?” Patrick asked. ‘That’s the latest, they are trying to buy time… to see if the ACC or the Big 12 will go along with them.'”

Patrick is also reporting that Nebraska and Iowa out of the Big Ten voted against canceling the college football season, while the rest of the Big Ten schools voted for it.

Here is the clip of the segment shared by “The Dan Patrick Show,” on Monday.
