The Pac-12 became the latest Division I conference to announce plans for what a potential fall season could look like. Similar to the Big Ten, Pac-12 teams will play a conference-only model for men's and women's soccer, should a 2020 season be possible.
“The health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports continues to be our number one priority,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement. “Our decisions have and will be guided by science and data, and based upon the trends and indicators over the past days, it has become clear that we need to provide ourselves with maximum flexibility to schedule, and to delay any movement to the next phase of return-to-play activities.”
