SEC,ACC,AAC,CUSA,Sunbelt Will Play/ B10-P10 Opt out

This leaves open possibility Football could still be played as early as January 2021.
BIG 10 conference revenues of $1Bn drive all other sports with the exception of MBB.

Still hoping the SEC decides to play. Heck, I need something to watch in the fall.

The B10 and PAC 10 "coup" failed. The SEC and ACC issued a joint statement saying they are all in for the upcoming season. The AAC has announced this morning that they are moving forward. The Sunbelt and Conference USA will follow the SEC's lead according to sources. Most of the major Indy's are playing as well. Nebraska, Iowa and Penn State are navigating the waters to possibly play. According to the Omaha press, Nebraska may leave the B10 over this and WILL PLAY this season . Sounds like a "hit" job to me.

I guess according to the B10 and the others , this is worse than the Depression , WWI and WWII. Very logical decision .

CBS Sports : The first two leagues formally canceled fall sports, which means for the first time in the 124-year history of the Big Ten and 61-year history of Pac-12, no school in either league will play football. There were Big Ten football champions during World War I, the depths of the Depression and World War II. But there won’t be in 2020.

For those interested in the US Military, both Army and Navy have committed to playing ball this season. Navy is a member of the AAC and Army is an Indy .
