Looks Like College Football Will Implement Conference Only Schedules This Season

The Big Ten Conference has announced it would play league only games and the Pac-12 reportedly set to do the same. It now appears to be only a matter of time before the rest of the power five makes the same announcement.

As of 4:30 on Thursday afternoon the ACC has yet to make an announcement, but that could quickly change.

Per CBS Sports, here is where the other power five leagues stand on football schedules for 2020.

SEC: The SEC had no comment on its future plans when reached by CBS Sports. Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk did tell reporters Thursday that a potential conference-only schedule could be decided upon by late July. It’s unclear if that time frame has been accelerated after the Big Ten’s announcement.

Big 12: The Big 12 has not made an announcement about its plans as of Thursday afternoon and appears to be taking the same wait-and-see approach as the SEC. Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said “no” when asked by the Des Moines Register’s Randy Peterson whether any scheduling announcement was coming soon.

Pac-12: The Pac-12 will reportedly move to conference-only games for the 2020 season with an announcement expected in the coming days, according to Auerbach.. That would be an obvious decision considering Michigan-Washington in Week 1 and Oregon-Ohio State in Week 2 are two of the biggest nonconference games originally scheduled during the 2020 season.
