College football might be to kick the can down the road all the way to spring 2021.

That’s according to a report from ESPN that says that the Power Five conference commissioners (SEC, ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 and Big Ten) are considering calling the season off for the remainder of the year.

“Several sources have indicated to ESPN that Big Ten presidents, following a meeting on Saturday, are ready to pull the plug on its fall sports season, and they wanted to gauge if commissioners and university presidents and chancellors from the other Power 5 conferences -- the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC -- will fall in line with them,” said ESPN’s reporting.

The report goes on to indicate that right now things look bad for trying to start up a season in the coming weeks.

"It doesn't look good," one Power 5 athletic director told ESPN.

ESPN goes on to report that “several sources” think that the 2020 season will get postponed or canceled, saying that the move “seems inevitable.”
