Pac-12 Opts Not to Start 9 AM Pacific Time Kickoffs This Season, May Revisit

College football teams residing on the West Coast just gained extra hours of sleep on Saturdays this fall.

The Pac-12 will not have any 9 a.m. PT kickoffs during the 2019-20 season despite coaches such as Chip Kelly (UCLA), Kyle Whittingham (Utah) and Justin Wilcox (California) expressing interest in the concept last month at Pac-12 media day, ESPN's Kyle Bonagura reported Wednesday evening.

A conference spokesman confirmed to Bonagura that it is "open to revisiting the idea in the future."
