Panel of athletic directors expects college football season to start on time
A panel of athletic directors from colleges nationwide is planning for football season to start on time despite concerns posed by the coronavirus.
According to a report from Sports Illustrated, the LEAD1 Association panel, made up of athletic directors from Virginia Tech, UTSA, NC State and New Mexico, laid out a potential timeline Monday that included six weeks of training before kickoff in early September. The panel tentatively agreed to start the season on time, with a decision for football coming in early July.
