Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement, “our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.” He went on to say, “the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crises.”

Other Big-5 conferences are expected to follow suit, so college football fans may have to wait until spring for their favorite sport.
