Pac-12 Approves Seven-Game Season To Begin In November
Written by on September 25, 2020
On Thursday, Pac-12 league presidents and chancellors voted to return to play. The Pac-12 season will start Nov. 6. ESPN reported the league will play a seven-game regular season.
On Aug. 11, the league postponed all sports competition through the end of the calendar year, the same day the Big Ten postponed its fall sports. However last week the Big Ten reversed course and announced it would start football on Oct. 24. That left the Pac-12 as the only Power Five conference not playing this fall amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
It is unclear when the Pac-12 will release its schedule of games, but a source told ESPN that the conference championship game will be played Dec. 18, a weekend that all 12 teams will be in action.
