On a day in which the Atlantic Coast Conference announced an eleven game season of which all must be conference or in states that a conference team resides, the Southeastern Conference is inching closer to making a similar decision.
The majority of member colleges’ athletic directors agreed to a ten-game conference-only schedule during a virtual meeting Wednesday. The proposed schedule must also be agreed to by league presidents, which are scheduled to meet Thursday.
It is very unclear if a decision will be made then or if it is pushed back until next week. The NCAA Board of Governors plan to meet next Tuesday to finalize a plan of action for fall sports, which could lead to postponements or cancellations of fall championship events.
Many have speculated that the extra two conference games could come from the next two year’s cross-divisional rotational matchups. For instance, Ole Miss could face off against Tennessee and Kentucky while Mississippi State could draw Vanderbilt and Georgia.
