Plenty of folks in West Virginia woke up ecstatic this morning with the news that the Big 12 was going forward with a fall football season. Mountaineer fans were even greeted with a revised schedule this morning, with the first game being played exactly a month from today.

While this large portion of West Virginia is pleased, what about Marshall and Conference USA?

The presidents of those universities met today, and have come to a decision on how they will move forward with a fall season.

According to Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated, Conference USA has decided to continue on with their pursuit of playing a 2020 College Football season. This conclusion was made after athletic directors and presidents met on a joint call to share medical information.

Conference USA is currently allowing teams to play eight conference games and schedule up to four non-conference games.

As of right now, Marshall’s schedule has not been finalized for the season.
