It has been a really weird week in the college football world, and some decisions that were expected were made today as both the Big Ten and Pac-12 have elected to postpone the 2020 college football season.
BREAKING: The Big Ten presidents have voted to postpone the 2020 college football season with hopes of playing in the spring, per sources.

These two conferences have always led the charge on potentially axing this season, and now that has actually come to fruition.
The conferences will attempt to play their respective seasons in the Spring, which is the same decision made by the MAC and the Mountain West.
However, this does not spell the end of college football just yet.
The Sun Belt, C-USA, and American Athletic Conference have all made public plans to go ahead with the season, and more importantly it seems like the ACC and SEC are both pushing ahead as it stands now.
The Power 5 conference really in limbo right now is the Big 12, and what Bob Bowlsby and the conference elects to do could decide whether or not there is college football in any capacity in 2020.
Two SEC sources just told me the same thing seconds apart: “We need the Big 12 to stay committed.”

The conference is scheduled to have a meeting today at 5:00 central time today, so we could be getting a decision very soon.
