Craig Thompson, Commissioner of the Mountain West Conference released a brief statement Wednesday regarding the ongoing discussions about fall sports, including football.
Earlier this week the Big Ten Conference announced a plan for their school’s to return to football, prompting many other conferences to deliver updates.
The start of the 2020 Mountain West football season was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Wyoming was scheduled to host a week 3 game versus Utah this Saturday.
Thompson’s comments are below in bold;
Multiple subgroups within the Conference are working daily on solutions to the existing challenges in order to facilitate a return to play for Mountain West football, and other Conference sport programs, at the earliest possible opportunity. This includes finalizing a plan for frequent, rapid response testing and continuing to monitor the status of public health directives in our MW states and communities.
