Poll results.

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.
