On the same day the B1G and Pac-12 cancel football season, Big 12 votes to move forward with fall schedule
On the same day the B1G and Pac-12 backed out of a college football season in 2020, the Big 12 has decided to move forward with a fall schedule.
Tuesday night, SoonerScoop.com reported that Big 12 presidents voted in favor of moving forward with a fall football schedule. A revised schedule is expected to be announced sometime in the coming days following the vote from the presidents.
Three Power 5 conferences are still on track to play football in the fall: the SEC, ACC and Big 12. The B1G and Pac-12 became the first major conferences in college football to opt out.
Sources telling SoonerScoop's @CareyAMurdock and @Eddie_Rado Big 12 presidents will allow conference to move forward toward a season and a revised Big 12 schedule will be released after approval from AD's during tonight's meetings.

At the Group of 5 level, the MAC and Mountain West have opted to cancel fall sports in 2020.
Whether or not the Big 12, SEC and ACC eventually have to make the same call as the B1G and Pac-12 remains to be seen. However, it appears that those three leagues will be doing their best to play football and other fall sports in the next two months.
It’ll be interesting to see if they can pull it off.
