Pac-12 eyes Oct. 31 start date for football but issues remain

While significant progress has been made in a return to play, the Pac-12 still is trying to iron out some issues before announcing a potential football season startup date, which could be as early as Oct. 31.

The conference presidents and chancellors discussed that topic as well as other issues in a regularly-scheduled meeting Friday. The meeting originally was to discuss the potential start of basketball but other topics were added to the agenda after developments earlier this week.

The Oct. 31 best-case-scenario date was reported first by Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News Thursday night.
