Report: ACC presidents 'staying the course' for fall football season
The SEC, ACC, and Big 12 continue marching towards a fall football season, while the Big Ten and Pac-12 have already bowed out due to the uncertainty of COVID-19.
As things stand right now, the SEC would likely only play if the ACC and Big 12 both agreed to play, too. So, for SEC fans, all eyes are on the ACC and Big 12 until September, as the trio has to stay together.
The ACC presidents held a previously scheduled meeting Thursday evening. Heading into the meeting, FSU president John Thrasher said they would be making a decision on the fall season.
Yahoo! Sports Pete Thamel spoke to a source following the meeting, and he tweeted, “No news from ACC presidents tonight. They are staying the course and continuing to seek medical advice.”
That’s obviously very positive news for college football fans who hope there’s a fall season. There will be many meetings between now and the start of football, and things are very fluid right now.
The SEC is scheduled to start practice on Monday, August 17.
