Recent survey from Stadium shows nearly all FBS ADs believe college football will happen in 2020
If you’re looking for some positive news about the 2020 college football season, then a recent survey conducted by Stadium’s Brett McMurphy has it.
Wednesday, McMurphy revealed the recent results of a survey, asking FBS athletic directors if they believed there would be a college football season in 2020. Nearly every single one said yes, although there was some belief that it may not start on time.
Overall, 99 percent of FBS athletic directors believe there will be a college football season. However, only 24 percent believe it will start on time, as previously scheduled. The largest majority (41 percent) believes that a 12-game season will begin in October or November while 20 percent think there will only be conference games played this fall.
According to the study, 11 percent believe the entire schedule will be pushed to spring.
There’s been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the 2020 college football season as the country continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic. Right now, it’s still very unclear whether or not the virus will have affect the start of fall sports, though contingency plans are currently being discussed.
A decision on the 2020 fall athletics season may not come for at least a few more weeks or potentially months. Decision-makers will want as much information as possible before coming to a solution for the 2020 season.
