ESPN: In the wake of the news that the Big Ten will begin its football season the weekend of Oct. 24, the Pac-12 remains on standby, waiting for governmental restrictions in California and Oregon to be lifted before formalizing a return-to-play plan.
By Wednesday afternoon, state officials from both California and Oregon issued comments to indicate it is unlikely governmental restrictions will prevent a Pac-12 season from taking place.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown told Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott that there are no state restrictions on the conference's ability to resume playing football.
