SAN FRANCISCO - Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott talks about today’s football schedule announcement on a brand-new installment of “Pac-12 Playlist,” presented by 76, airing at 10 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. MT on Pac-12 Network.
Hosts Ashley Adamson and Yogi Roth sit down with Scott, who gives insight on the modified football schedule based on the Pac-12 Medical Advisory Committee guidelines prioritizing health and safety, and when student-athletes can begin practice.
“We’ve got some really exciting matchups, and the thing I think I really want to commend our team and our group that’s worked on this for, is the creativity and the thoughtfulness about how they’ve built this schedule to get 10 games with as delayed a start as we can have, balancing it with some built-in flexibility,” said Scott.
“We plan to start on September 26 but it’s possible not all of our schools will be able to start on September 26, and if they can’t, that’s fine. We’ve got bye weeks built in for possible rescheduling of early games, and we’ve left an open flex date the week of December 12 that any game that needs to be rescheduled for any reason, whether it's on the front end of the calendar or if there’s an issue during the season and a game needs to be rescheduled, we can do that. So we’ve maximized our chances, we think given what we know today, of completing a 10-game conference schedule and then concluding with our Football Championship Game.”
Schedule information for the upcoming Pac-12 football season can be found here, and game times and broadcast information will be forthcoming.
