The Big Ten and Pac-12 have already announced that they will play conference-only regular season schedules in 2020, and the ACC will make a decision on whether to do the same in late July. ACC Media Days are scheduled to be held virtually beginning July 21, so we may get an announcement at that time. The Big 12 has also set a decision date for late July, and the SEC is meeting on Monday to confer. What this crazy season will end up looking like is anyone's guess!

Statement from ACC Commissioner John Swofford:

“The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and administrators remains the ACC’s top priority. As we continue to work on the best possible path forward for the return of competition, we will do so in a way that appropriately coincides with our universities’ academic missions. Over the last few months, our conference has prepared numerous scenarios related to the fall athletics season. The league membership and our medical advisory group will make every effort to be as prepared as possible during these unprecedented times, and we anticipate a decision by our Board of Directors in late July.”
