Fall sports are on. Long live fall sports. Long live Texas Longhorns football.
Fall sports for 2020, however, depend on football, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told 247Sports.
From 247Sports: “In an exclusive interview with The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown asked Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby if the conference chose to cancel football in the fall, would it ultimately lead to canceling all sports, to which Bowlsby confirmed as a likely possibility. ‘I think that’s probably right,’ Bowlsby [said] ... . ‘There will be some conversation about that and likely a lot of institutional input. But that’s likely to be the circumstance, I think, based on what I have heard from our campuses.’”
