The Pac-12 announced today that its CEO Group has approved the flexibility for Pac-12 universities to schedule non-conference football game opponents subject to certain parameters.
“The Pac-12 is committed to maintaining maximum flexibility to provide our football student-athletes with an opportunity to compete, while continuing to ensure that health and safety remains our number one priority,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.
The Pac-12 CEO Group decision requires that the following criteria be met in order for a non-conference football opponent to be scheduled by a Pac-12 football team:
- All Pac-12 testing and related protocols must be adhered to by the non-conference opponent;
- The non-conference game will in all cases be a home game for the Pac-12 team, broadcast by a Pac-12 television partner; and
- If a Pac-12 opponent becomes available by the end of day Thursday in any given week, the Conference game must be played in lieu of any non-conference game.
