Less than 12 hours after the Big Ten and PAC-12 announced cancellations of all Fall sports, the Big 12 says, ‘hike!’ ESPN reports the conference says it’s moving forward with plans to kick off the Fall football season with a revised schedule also released Wednesday.
Commissioner Bob Bowlsby released a statement saying, “Ultimately, our student-athletes have indicated their desire to compete in the sports they love this season and it is up to all of us to deliver a safe, medically sound, and structured academic and athletic environment for accomplishing that outcome.”
The current conference only schedule is slated to begin Sept. 26 with teams each getting two bye-weeks.
