PAC-12 officials have released on Friday its 2020 football schedule and plans for fall sports.
PAC-12 football teams \will play a 10-game, conference-only schedule. The season is expected to begin on Sept. 26. The later start to the season will allow for additional time for student-athletes to properly and safely prepare for the season," PAC-12 officials said in their statement.
Arizona State University and University of Arizona will face each other in the first week back. The rivals’ Territorial Cup game has traditionally closed out the season.
The PAC-12 has also approved conference-only seasons for men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, and men’s and women’s cross country.
“From the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, we have been committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to our athletic programs,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “The schedule and plans approved today and path to return to competition are subject to public health orders and will be taken in accordance with the health and well-being guidelines developed by our Pac-12 Medical Advisory Committee."
Officials are prepared to adjust plans if the health situation changes.
