The Pac-12 has voted unanimously to postpone all sports, including football and basketball, through the end of the year.
In a statement, the Pac-12 said if conditions related to the coronavirus improve, it would consider a return to competition after Jan. 1, 2021.
“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement. “Our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.”
The postponement applies to all sports that were scheduled to start before the end of the year, which includes winter sports like men’s and women’s basketball.
