SEC delays start of football season Featured

(ap) The SEC is delaying the start of its college football season.

The conference announced Thursday that it’s implementing a 10-game conference-only schedule for each team similar to the ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12. But unlike those three conferences, the SEC is also moving the start of the football season back. The first SEC games will kick off on Sept. 26, three weeks after the original Week 1 start date on Labor Day weekend.

The delay means that the SEC championship game will be played Dec. 19 instead of Dec. 5.

A 10-game schedule for SEC teams means that teams will play two extra conference games in 2020.

The SEC’s move also leaves the Big 12 as the only conference to not make a decision about how it’ll handle the 2020 football season. The Big 12 said earlier in the week that it would host a virtual media day on Monday but announced Thursday that the media day had been canceled.

There is a report from Sports Illustrated that the Big-10 has advised its members that the league possibly will play no football games this fall.

A decision on whether to start training camp on time is expected to be made in the next five days.
