Will there even be a season?

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-LSU vs Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Non-conference games have been slashed. New conference-only schedules have been made. The start date has been pushed back nearly a month — and yet, here we are. Even after all of that, we’re facing the real threat of losing the entire college football season to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Things are changing by the minute, and it feels like we’ll have some sort of clarity soon. But for now, we’ll keep this post update with the latest news from the college football world. There’s A LOT to digest here, and we welcome you to discuss in the comments.

The newest updates will appear at the top.

THURSDAY: August 13th

  • ... and then there’s this. So, uh, who knows?
  • The College Football Playoff committee is preparing for the 2020 season.
  • No FCS football this fall.

WEDNESDAY: August 12th

  • The Big 12 has released a revised schedule.
  • The Big 12 voted to roll forward with a fall season last night, basically saving the season for the time being.

TUESDAY: August 11th

  • And now down goes the Pac-12, as expected.
  • And there it is. The Big Ten will reportedly postpone its season and attempt to play in the spring.
  • Some seemingly good news from the ACC.
  • An update from the Pac-12.

MONDAY: August 10th

  • The Mountain West joins the MAC in canceling their football season.
  • Tennessee wants to play. Chancellor Plowman confirms.
  • And here’s a statement from SEC commish Greg Sankey. He says that his league is in no rush to make a decision.
  • Apparently the Big Ten hasn’t voted on canceling the season after all. Previous reports stated that presidents voted 12-2 in favor of canceling.
  • It’s pretty clear that there’s a disconnect between players/coaches and University Presidents.
