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.
As we reported earlier, CUSA ADs and presidents met tonight on a joint call, where medical info was shared.
While presidents are still meeting, source tells @SINow that the two groups decided to continue moving forward with a 2020 season, as expected.
