The Southeastern Conference said today it will play a 10-game, conference-only football schedule this year with the start of the season delayed until Sept. 26.

The changes will allow for the SEC schools to better integrate the return of students to campus as they attempt to manage the spread of COVID-19, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said.

“This new plan for a football schedule is consistent with the educational goals of our universities to allow for the safe and orderly return to campus of their student populations and to provide a healthy learning environment during these unique circumstances presented by the COVID-19 virus,” Sankey said. “This new schedule supports the safety measures that are being taken by each of our institutions to ensure the health of our campus communities.”
