Right now, UW is scheduled to open Pac-12 play at OR on October 3.

Scott stresses throughout the release that "health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports continues to be our number one priority".

BYU, another school that doesn't play in a conference, had three Pac-12 opponents on its schedule.

The SEC will discuss its options during a meeting Monday with athletic directors and league officials that was scheduled before the Big Ten's decision. How long it takes for the Southeastern Conference, Big 12 and Atlantic Coast Conference to join them remains to be seen.

Voluntary workouts at WSU have been taking place since June 15 and the school was scheduled to begin mandatory athletic activities on Saturday, with fall camp opening approximately two weeks later on August 3 - one month before what would've been the season opener at Utah State.

"The health and safety of our student-athletes, staff and fans is paramount, and this move affords us the greatest level of flexibility to adapt and evolve in real time, in the midst of a very fluid situation, " Jarmond said.
