Report: Pac-12 eyes mid-September start

The Pac-12 is moving ahead with plans for a 10-game, conference-only schedule that would begin the weekend of Sept. 19, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

The newspaper said that an official announcement, with weekly matchups, is expected by at least the end of next week.

Should the Pac-12 finalize its plan, it will join the Big Ten among the Power 5 conferences to solely play conference games in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic. The SEC, ACC and Big-12 are looking to play all conference games plus at least one non-conference opponent.

Per the San Jose Mercury News, the final version of the plan includes five division games and five crossover games, but it could also drop to nine total games if Pac-12 presidents “prefer a more conservative approach.”

The Pac-12 title game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas could be played Dec. 4, Dec. 11-12 or Dec. 18-19, per the newspaper.
