College Football Teams That Plan to Play a 2020 Season

These teams still plan to play a college football season in 2020

College football's 2020 season has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the MAC, Mountain West and Pac-12 joining the Big Ten in returning to play in 2020, just three teams have decided not to play in the fall and will hope to schedule a season in the spring. As of Sept. 27, 127 programs are trying to play a schedule in the fall. The Big Ten and Pac-12 join ACC, Big 12 and SEC as the Power 5 conferences attempting to play this fall, and they are joined by the American, Conference USA, MAC, Mountain West and Sun Belt.

 

It's possible more programs could announce a change of direction in the coming weeks. However, for now, here's a look at which teams are tentatively playing NCAA football at the FBS level in 2020:
