Big Ten’s back, leaving the Pac-12 in awkward football limbo

Could Mountain West follow Big Ten's lead and return for fall football?

Could Mountain West follow Big Ten's lead and return for fall football?

The only thing standing between the Pac-12 Conference and the resumption of a fall football season had been clearance from public health officials in California and OR, whose guidelines have prevented teams from initiating contact practice, let alone holding full-on college football games.

Despite the announcement, the Pac-12 still must submit plans for the upcoming season regarding COVID-19 testing before football games can proceed.

Could a Pac-12 return be looming?

Those states, which house half of the conference's teams, lifted restrictions on Wednesday, clearing the largest hurdle the Pac-12 has faced in its effort to get back on the field in 2020. The season is expected to begin in late October. The presentation stated the rate at 19 percent, but the L.A. County Department of Public Health listed it as 5.49 percent.

Scott said Wednesday during an interview on ESPN's "SportsCenter" that conference officials are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss the options and that the "best-case scenario is six weeks of practice, training camp and starting [the season] end of October, early November".

"But that's still subject to county approvals, which we don't have yet. And we're gonna do everything possible to play this fall if we can, play a Pac-12 championship game, and have teams compete for a College Football Playoff, if it's possible".

The pop star wrote that President Trump "offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while black lives continue to be taken". She adds: "Yeah, I lived in this house while people watched me for a couple of years, to make sure I was safe".

About five hours after Scott's initial statement was released, Newsom reportedly said there was nothing in the state guidelines that prevents the Pac-12 from resuming play.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged the Pac-12 college sports conference to reopen football after the Big 10 conference reversed a decision to postpone their season. "They wanted it very badly", Trump said.

"I want to make this crystal clear", Newsom said.

A recent partnership between the Pac-12 and Quidel Corporation will allow rapid COVID-19 to be administered during a potential campaign.

An official from the state's health department spoke to Mercury News writer Jon Wilner to clarify the guidelines regarding practices and cohorts.

The Pac-12's CEO Group, which voted unanimously in early August to postpone fall sports until at least January 1, is scheduled to meet Friday afternoon, sources said, where it will discuss a wide range of scenarios and receive input from the conference's medical advisory group.
