EUGENE, Ore. -- The Pac-12 announced on Thursday that its CEO Group has approved the flexibility for its schools to schedule non-conference football games.

The Pac-12 has seen a handful of games cancelled due to COVID-19. This plan gives the conference a backup plan for teams to play as many games as possible.

There are a few requirements teams must follow in order to schedule non-conference contests.

All Pac-12 testing protocols must be adhered to by the non-conference opponent.

The non-conference game will be hosted by the Pac-12 team and broadcast by a Pac-12 television partner. 

If a Pac-12 opponent becomes available by the end of the day Thursday in any given week, the Conference game must be played in lieu of any non-conference game.

“The Pac-12 is committed to maintaining maximum flexibility to provide our football student-athletes with an opportunity to compete, while continuing to ensure that health and safety remains our number one priority,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott in a statement. 

The Pac-12 had previously banned all non-conference games for 2020.
