Pac-12 return-to-football vote could gain steam with new reported policy

247Sports: On the same day that the Pac-12 CEO Group is reportedly set to meet to discuss the prospects of reinstating a Fall 2020 football season, a major hurdle in a return to play has reportedly been cleared in the state of California. According to Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News, state health officials in California have committed to expanding cohorts to a number that will allow for footabll teams to hold workable practices.

The Pac-12 is currently the lone Power 5 conference that is not playing a football season this fall, though a reversal of the Aug. 11 decision to postpone could be imminent with a vote reportedly looming. Per health guidlines that were issued by the state on Sept. 4, cohorts have been defined as “stable groups of students with no more than 16 individuals, who are meeting for targeted supports and intervention services, under the direction of the LEA, while the school is closed to in person instruction and in addition to distance learning.”
