The Big Ten was the first Power Five conference to postpone its fall sports, but about an hour later, it had company.

The PAC-12 become the second Power Five conference to move its fall sports season to the spring on Tuesday afternoon, joining the Big Ten.

“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.  “Our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.”

With both the Big Ten and the PAC-12 postponing their fall seasons, the other three Power Five conferences now have decisions to make.
