Arizona football to open 2020 season at home against ASU

Oregon Ducks vs Washington State Cougars

"We realize at the moment, those are real hot spots, and the requisite authorities and approvals are not there yet", Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said of California and Arizona.

The Pac-12 has set a 10-game, conference-only fall schedule for football, including moving the USC-UCLA rivalry game to the first weekend of play in late September instead of its traditional closing weekend.

As for the start date, the conference announced that the 2020 Pac-12 football season will begin on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Cougars, who are not members of any conference, will be forced to drop scheduled games against Utah, Michigan State, Arizona State, Minnesota, Missouri and Stanford. They will also play OR in a much-anticipated matchup on December 5, their last game before the Pac-12 Championship.


"The schedule and return to play plans provide for maximum flexibility and the best opportunity to play all fall sports in an environment that prioritizes safety".

WSU plays 10 of the 12 teams from its original fall schedule, but the revised version adds a 10th game at USC. "At the same time, we will continue to evaluate the best available science, data and advice of public health officials as we make decisions and any required adjustments going forward". "We are appreciative of Commissioner Scott, the Pac-12 staff and everyone involved across our 12 institutions for working collaboratively to create these schedules".

The Pac-12 on Friday released its 10-game, conference-only football schedule for 2020, with a couple of major rivalry games in Week 1.
