The Big 12 conference is continuing with fall football for the foreseeable future and released its football schedule this week—including the UT Longhorns schedule. However, other college conferences have prevailed to the virus and decided to cancel their seasons this week, and a majority of our readers think the Big 12 should do the same.
We asked newsletter readers, "Should the Big 12 cancel its football season?" and of the 133 who voted, 58% voted "yes."
Among those who canceled fall football this year are the Big 10 Conference and the Pac 12.
On the opposition, 39% voted the Big 12 should not cancel fall football.
Currently, the Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium is set to host Longhorn games at 25% capacity, brought down from 50% earlier in the summer. Other requirements will also be implemented for safety.
Lastly, 3% voted "unsure" on the topic.

Vaccine week 13: Travis County to receive more than 75K doses of vaccine thanks to Johnson & Johnson bump
Eighty-seven providers in Travis County will receive a total of 75,540 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the week of March 8 as part of the 13th weekly allocation, a nearly 62% increase compared to last week's. The significant increase is largely due to inclusion of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which received an emergency use authorization from the FDA last weekend.
The bulk will go to hub providers Austin Public Health and UT Health Austin, the clinical wing of Dell Medical School, as well as to Seton Medical Center, which will receive the largest share of this week's shipment. These three providers will either receive doses from Moderna or Pfizer.
