The Pac- 12 announced a revised 2020 fall football schedule giving Husky fans a cautious sigh of relief. The release of the Conference only schedule is a sign of intent by Commissioner Larry Scott’s office to have football. The guarded relief is from the unpredictability of the COVID- 19 Pandemic. Every one of the schools must pass their individual governmental guidelines before participating in practices and actual games.
“From the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, we have been committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to our athletic programs,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “The schedule and plans approved today and path to return to competition are subject to public health orders and will be taken in accordance with the health and well-being guidelines developed by our Pac-12 Medical Advisory Committee.
The schedule and return to play plans provide for maximum flexibility and the best opportunity to play all fall sports in an environment that prioritizes safety. At the same time, we will continue to evaluate the best available science, data and advice of public health officials as we make decisions and any required adjustments going forward.”
