The Utes were set to begin their season Sept. 3 with the annual rivalry matchup against Brigham Young University, followed by non-conference games against Montana State and Wyoming, before beginning conference play at California Sept. 26.
Both UW and WSU will have two Friday games - October 30 at Stanford for Washington State, Nov. 13 at Utah for Washington, and the usual Apple Cup meeting against each other on the Friday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27), which is taking place at Martin Stadium in Pullman this year.More news: Arsenal vs Chelsea: I don’t need a phone call from Abramovich - Lampard
The conference announced July 10 that its fall sports teams would only play in-conference due to COVID-19 concerns. Of course, the Mariners have never played in the World Series - they lost to Cleveland in the ALCS that year - but if you bought playoff tickets, you had to buy every possible home game throughout, so the World Series tickets were printed. The 2020 Pac-12 football schedule will also include one mid-season open date and an open date on December 12 for all 14 schools.
Teams can begin the 20-hour-per-week access period on this Monday and have the ability to begin training camp as early as August 17, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a media webinar Friday afternoon, although it's still to be seen how county and state health regulations would impact the potential start date.More news: Nine Premier League clubs asked CAS to uphold Man City's European ban
The Pac-12 has set a 10-game, conference-only fall schedule for football, including moving the USC-UCLA rivalry game to the first weekend of play in late September instead of its traditional closing weekend. The conference athletic directors know this. "Consistent with our collective need to be adaptable to changes in circumstances and evolving medical knowledge, even issuing a schedule does not guarantee that competition will occur".
Pac-12 football programs will be allowed Monday to begin 20 hours per week of mandatory team activities, which include strength and conditioning, meetings, and non-contact walk-throughs. Within those 40 days, 25 can contain a practice.More news: Fauci testifies on coronavirus response
"If schools can't start then, if they can't get a safe on-ramp for the start of the season, like everything with this, we'll reevaluate along the way", Scott said.
