The Big Ten and Pac-12 have already postponed college football and fall sports with hopes to be able to play in the spring.

The SEC, ACC and Big 12 are still planning to move forward with college football in the fall while players and parents of student-athletes of the other Power Five conferences petition for the others to change course and reinstate the season.
