Governor Gavin Newsom Says California Won’t Stand in the Way of Pac-12 Football


The Pac-12 on Wednesday suggested that it could soon be following the Big Ten in restarting its season.

Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement that he welcomed remarks from the governors of Oregon and California on Wednesday, who said that their states' coronavirus guidelines did not preclude NCAA football from being played.

"Our California and Oregon universities will now each individually and immediately reach out to their relevant county public health officials to seek clarification on what is required to achieve the same clearance to resume contact practice and competition," Scott said.

California Gov. Newsom said Wednesday that universities in the Golden State can "resume football," Politico reported, apparently in response to an open letter from members of the USC football team in which they implored him to let the games go on.

Earlier on Wednedsay, the Big Ten officially reversed course on its prior decision to suspend fall sports.
