Pac-12 joins Big Ten with only con­fer­ence games

Chicago Sun-Times - - BY THE NUMBERS -

The Pac-12 joined the Big Ten to shift to a con­fer­ence-only fall sched­ule amid grow­ing con­cerns over the coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

In ad­di­tion, the con­fer­ence said it would be de­lay­ing the be­gin­ning of all manda­tory ath­letic ac­tiv­i­ties “un­til a se­ries of health and safety in­di­ca­tors, which have re­cently trended in a neg­a­tive di­rec­tion, pro­vided suf­fi­cient pos­i­tive data to en­able a move to a sec­ond phase of re­turn-to-play ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Pac-12 com­mis­sioner Larry Scott tested pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus and is self-quar­an­tin­ing.
