USC, UCLA get OK from county; Pac-12 could return as early as late October

CBS Sports: The Pac-12 announced Aug. 11 that it would consider returning to sports after the calendar flipped to 2021. However, a series of developments last week and then this Wednesday opened the door for the league to join the Big Ten in returning to the field earlier than expected.

Leaders in California and Oregon moved to ease state health restrictions on Wednesday that would have otherwise prevented six of the league’s 12 teams from practicing. Citing a source, ESPN’s Heather Dinich reported that the Pac-12 could return to play as early as late October if county officials in the location of each program ease restrictions to allow teams to practice.
