TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pac-12 Conference made the decision Friday to move to a conference-only schedule for Fall sports.

In a news release from Arizona Athletics, Pac-12 Conference’s announcement follows the guiding principles of the University of Arizona, President Robbins, the athletics department and the NCAA putting the health, safety and well-being of student-athletes, coaches, staff and the community as the top priority.

Moving forward, our athletics department will support our Fall sports programs with the impact of this decision. We will also begin reaching out to our fans, donors and supporters about this decision’s impact on ticketing and scheduling. The Wildcat Family has been tremendously patient, dedicated and compassionate during these trying times, and I want to thank you all again for your support.
Director of Athletics Dave Heeke

The athletics department will continue to monitor the situations, followup with campus partners, as well as state and local government leaders regarding the safety and healthy re-entry processes, according to the statement.
