The Big 12, in its first move as a forward thinking conference, has made its decision to move ahead with the 2020 season.
Sources: Part of the eventual Big 12 announcement tonight will be enhanced medical protocols. This is expected to include "more testing" for COVID-19 and testing for cardiac issues if an athlete tests positive.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 12, 2020
The Big 12’s decision likely means that the Big 12, ACC and SEC will move forward with some sort football in 2020.
The SEC and ACC have already decided to play non conference games in their own home state so you can cross off any big non conference games this season, but the Big 12 will definitely need to play at least one non conference game to keep up with the 9+1 games that the SEC and ACC will play.
Source: The Big 12 Presidents are wrapping up their call. The league is going to continue to pursue playing this season. A schedule, which was already prepared, will be released in the near future. This confirms what our @rivals friends at @SoonerScoop reported.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 12, 2020
The Big 12 will release a schedule possibly tomorrow.
