(WTAJ) — As conferences begin to postpone or cancel their fall sports seasons, the Big 12 will continue to play for 2020.

Reporters at Yahoo Sports and The Athletic said that a revised schedule is already in the works for the conference.

Other conferences in the power five, The Big Ten and Pac-12, have already postponed their fall sports seasons and are looking at options to play in the spring due to health concerns from COVID-19.
