Reports: Big 12 presidents reach decision to continue preparations for 2020 football season
All eyes are on the Big 12 as we make our way deeper into Tuesday night.
The Big Ten and Pac-12 have announced that they’ll cancel the fall football season with the hopes of playing in the spring. On the other hand, the SEC and ACC are moving forward with preparations for playing football this fall.
The Big 12 presidents held a call on Tuesday night and, according to multiple reports, the Big 12 presidents have agreed to move forward in the same vein as the SEC and ACC:
Source: The Big 12 Presidents are wrapping up their call. The league is going to continue to pursue playing this season. A schedule, which was already prepared, will be released in the near future. This confirms what our @rivals friends at @SoonerScoop reported.

That’s huge news, as the SEC and ACC reportedly want the Big 12 to swing things to where the majority of the Power 5 conferences are playing.
That seems to be the case for now, but as with anything during this pandemic, things can change in an instant. For now, though, this is certainly positive news for fans who want to see games this fall.
