Reports: Pac-12 decides on 2020 football season
Not too long ago, it appeared only three of the Power 5 football conferences would play a 2020 season. Now, it looks like all five will be in action this fall.
Numerous outlets are reporting that the conference has voted in favor of a 2020 fall season after previously calling off fall sports and postponing to winter.
ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura and Heather Dinich are reporting that a seven-game, conference season will begin on Nov. 6 with the conference championship played on Dec. 18, ahead of the College Football Playoff selection committee’s reveal of the final top 25 and CFP field of 4 on Dec. 20.
Official details of the schedule have not yet been revealed. Pete Thamel of Yahoo is reporting, per sources, that fans will not be allowed to attend games. Thamel also reports that the Pac-12 will follow the Big Ten model of hosting crossover games involving all conference teams on the weekend of the conference championship games.
The Pac-12 is holding a conference call with media members at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
