Conflicting Reports Surfacing on Big 12’s Looming Decision

B12 presidents will gather for an incredibly important meeting Tuesday evening.



The Big 12 could hold the deciding vote on whether or not FBS football is played this fall, and there are a lot of sources spilling a lot of different takes.

One comes from Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel, who reported a “high-ranking Big 12 official” told him, “There’s an increasing sentiment that we’ll play.”

That sounds rather hopeful for college football being played this fall — especially in light of the Big Ten and Pac-12 postponing their seasons until the spring — but it isn’t the only information slipping through the cracks ahead of the league’s Tuesday evening meeting.

Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger reports a much murkier picture, saying the conference is “split.” Dellenger added that a small group within the Big 12 wants to play, a small group wants to cancel and a larger group wants to delay.

Dellenger reported that Big 12 athletic directors and presidents will have a joint meeting Tuesday evening starting about 5 p.m. That’s where the Big 12 presidents will hash things out, and the rest of college football could hinge on what comes out of it.
