The Pac-12 voted Thursday to kick off a seven-game football season on Nov. 6, with the championship game set for Dec. 18. In August, the conference voted to postpone fall sports until the spring because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, the conference has been able to secure daily COVID-19 testing for athletes, The Associated Press reports. The Big Ten also previously voted to postpone the fall football season, but reversed course earlier this month, saying play would start on Oct. 24. Four football games scheduled for this weekend, including Notre Dame at Wake Forest, have been canceled due to players becoming infected by the coronavirus.
