In light of the decision by the Pac-12 CEO Group to schedule Conference-only play and to delay a move to mandate athletic activities, the 2020 Pac-12 Football Media Days presented by 76 has been postponed until further notice.

The news isn’t much of a surprise considering the Pac-12’s decision to move to conference-only play for the 2020 football season. The Big Ten Conference was the first Power 5 Conference to elect to move to conference-only competition.
The health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports continues to be our number one priority. Our decisions have and will be guided by science and data, and based upon the trends and indicators over the past days, it has become clear that we need to provide ourselves with maximum flexibility to schedule, and to delay any movement to the next phase of return-to-play activities.” -- Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott
Key matchups such as Oregon-Ohio State and Oklahoma State-Oregon State have already been cancelled.
