    "The Pac-12 on Friday approved a 10-game, conference-only fall schedule for football to begin on Sept. 26, with 'a lot of built in flexibility,' the conference announced on Friday.

    Each team will play five home and five road games, and the Pac-12 championship will now be played Dec. 18 or 19. The conference title game will be held in a home-hosted model for 2020, with the Pac-12 and partners Allegiant Stadium and the Raiders, Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and MGM Resorts International agreeing to begin hosting of the Championship Game at Allegiant Stadium in 2021 for its two-year run in Las Vegas."

    "Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott conceded it 'may not be possible' to play even a 10-game schedule by Dec. 19 -- or the spring might be needed to finish it.

    'The same thing may happen in other markets,' he said. '... We recognize that the best-laid plans may not come to fruition, whether being able to start on the 26th, play a complement of a minimum number of games we feel would be required for a College Football Playoff, and we may start but not be able to finish, and then we will have to adjust. We'll have to adjust with a spring piece, either to finish or to start, maybe delay dates for a playoff if it's still possible. There are many, many scenarios still on the table, but we felt it's critical at this point to be able to give some clarity in our plan.'

    When asked on Friday what his confidence level in this season is, Scott answered, 'I don't know.' As Major League Baseball continues to struggle with schedule-halting outbreaks, Scott said he is expecting the same this fall in college football."

    ASU starts its season against Arizona instead of ending the regular season with the Territorial Cup. Same with Oregon and Oregon State and the Civil War---no longer the last game on their schedules.

    I love this. I hope other schools do this. It would be a shame if some of these historical rivalries don't get played. Iron Bowl in September would be awesome.

    Ohio Dept. of Health press secretary confirmed Aug. 1 order prohibits spectators at contact sports game. That includes Ohio State, Bengals, Browns. Remains in effect until state of emergency declared by Gov. no longer exists or ODH rescinds/modifies order
