Report: SEC considering move to conference-only schedule
A number of conferences around the country are making modifications to their fall sports season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the SEC has yet to announce one way or another what its 2020 plans are. That could be quickly changing, though.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger, the SEC is “moving closer” to a 10-game conference-only slate of games for 2020:
ADs agreed on the matter Wednesday and presidents are expected to meet Thursday, though they may delay a decision until next week.
This is a fluid situation. https://t.co/er591whOF0

As Dellenger notes, the SEC presidents will meet on Thursday, but a decision might not come until next week, as we move into the first week of August.
With the season set to begin on Aug. 29 (Week 0) or Sept. 4 (Week 1), the time to make decisions is running out. We’ll see what the SEC decides over the coming days.
