ACC commissioner lays out four scenarios for football, fall sports return

ACC commissioner John Swofford held a media teleconference Thursday after a virtual spring meeting session with conference representatives.

Swofford told reporters that there are four scenarios in play: 1. A football season as scheduled 2. A shortened football season 3. No football season but having basketball 4. No sports in the 2020-21 academic year.

Swofford believes they are currently on track to avoid the final two scenarios.

Swofford added that they wouldn't necessarily have to have every school on board to compete this season:

He does believe it is a "foreign thought" that they would be playing without students returning to campus, however:
