There may not be college football this fall, according to a report at ESPN.com on Sunday about the commissioners of the Power 5 conferences held an emergency meeting on Sunday.
Saturday, the Mid-American Conference cancelled the entire fall season, including football and that touched off the latest round of media predicting it was the first conference to fold amid concerns about the current coronavirus pandemic.
Several sources have indicated to ESPN the Big Ten is ready to pull the plug on everything but want to hear from everybody else before making any announcement.
None are required to follow along and cancel fall sports.
“It doesn’t look good,” one Power 5 athletic director was quoted in the story by ESPN.
The presidents and chancellors of the Pac-12 are scheduled to meet on Tuesday.
Over the past 48 hours, ESPN is reporting “several sources” have said cancelling the football season seems inevitable.
