ACC anticipates relatively normal college football season, but planning for much more dire scenarios

Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford said Thursday that while the conference is anticipating having a relatively normal football season, it also is financially planning for a series of scenarios amid the coronavirus pandemic that not only include having no football season, but also having no sports at all this upcoming school year.

Swofford also said he believes it will not be necessary for all of the ACC schools’ programs to be operational for the conference to conduct fall sports competition, that testing of athletes will be a critical component of the resumption of team training on campus and that uniform protocols within the conference concerning the frequency and timing of testing will be a goal before the resumption of competition.
