    ESPN is reporting that
    A. No decision has been made about fall sports for a Cal State schools;and,
    B. The U Cal system has made no announcement but a spokesman is quoted as saying it is “unlikely” schools in the U Cal system will fully reopen in the fall.

    Elsewhere, it’s been reported that schools with California colleges on their 2039 schedule are working on contingency plans. For example, on Sept 5 Alabama is scheduled to play USC and TCU is supposed to play Cal. The Tide and Horned Frogs have discussed playing each other at ATT Stadium if California schools don’t play football. It is likely lower profile schools at all levels that have opponents from California on their schedule are making similar alternative arrangements.
    Edit to add: it doesn’t affect football but the d2 CCCA has suspended fall sports.

      Also, USC and Stanford are private universities and will announce their own decisions I would imagine.

        It’s very likely that the private schools will follow the lead of their public counterparts.

          Most of the schools in Michigan have announced they're returning to in-person classes this fall (with at least one college planning on starting early in order to be done by Thanksgiving).
          USC and Stanford are both private institutions.

          Here's the breakdown of D1 schools in California:

          University of California:
          -Berkeley
          -Los Angeles
          -Davis (FCS)

          California State University:
          -Fresno
          -San Diego
          -San Jose
          -Cal Poly (FCS)
          -Sacramento (FCS)

          Private:
          -USC
          -Stanford
          -University of San Diego (FCS)

          There is 1 D2 program (APU - Private) and 8 D3 Programs (2 co-ops, all private).

          EDIT: There are also 68 CCCAA teams, all public I believe - governed by the California Community Colleges system.

            Along with the Cal State announcement yesterday, the CCAA has announced that all fall sports are cancelled. UC-San Diego is the only non-CSU member of the CCAA.

            On the surface, this may sound obvious - however I think it's an indicator of what will happen if more large university systems shut down.

                As much as I hate to think or say it there is not going to be a 2020 college football season without an effective treatment or antibody serum available in large quantities for the general population in the next 2-3 months. I don’t believe the reported and promising medical drug research can be approved and scaled up to massive production in that time frame.There might be pro football in empty stadiums with extensive testing and quarantine, but not college football. The CSU decision is the first of many more to come from other states and conferences.

                  These decisions seem to be split along both political lines, and also along the lines of football sponsorship. CSU system shuts down campuses, yet San Diego State plans to proceed with fall sports. CCAA becomes the first to cancel fall sports, yet doesn't sponsor football. SEC/Big 12 are full steam ahead for football, yet UConn has said it's unlikely. Strange tensions at work here.

                    Two schools in the PSAC are planning face to face classes. Both are private in Erie, Pennsylvania.
                    Both Gannon U & Mercyhurst U have d2 football teams.

                      UCSD is moving up to Division I and the Big West this year, so they're not affected by the CCAA decision.

                        Good point. I knew they were moving up but I just didn't connect the dots.

                          The least surprising news of the day - Hillsdale will open in the Fall, unless told not too by the government.

                            The Mountain West just lost 3 football teams ( Fresno St., San Diego State., San Jose State.) from California State System and possibility of a fourth in Hawaii. That's a third of the universities in the conference. Big Sky Lost two in Sacramento State and Cal Poly. Like I said it's a fluid situation. I wonder what Azusa Pacific is thinking about right now?

                              looks like lunacy will prevail and no NCAA football this fall. We better start worrying about NCAA basketball now.

                                This really bummed me out. My alma mater, Cal Poly had a championship basketball team and was set to play U.C. Davis in the semi-finals.
                                Will never know.
                                Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
