Big 12 leaders met on Tuesday and for now the league still plans to hold a fall football season—a revised schedule for the league’s 9+1 model is expected to be released soon, per reports. As long as the Big 12 intends to play football this year, the ACC and SEC are expected to do the same.

Both the Big 12 and SEC are planning to begin their seasons on Sept. 26, while the ACC is set to get underway on Sept. 12, which would certainly give the league a nice window of added exposure if a fall season does work out.

Here’s an updated look at the status of conferences and schools throughout the divisions as of Wednesday morning. The AAC, Sun Belt, and Conference USA also intend to play this fall, as do independents like Army and BYU.

So that’s the story for this morning; we’ll see how long it stays this way. Everything is so fluid on a seemingly hourly basis that it feels like we’re going through conference expansion chaos again.
