Just over a week after the Big Ten announced their intention to play football this fall, the Pac-12 has also reversed course and will start their season in November.

The 12 teams will play six games, five against their divisional foe and a crossover game against their counterpart from the other division on Championship weekend, similar to what the Big Ten is doing. The season will kick off on November 7 and no fans will be allowed in the stands.

The Pac-12's return means all of the Power Five conferences will suit up this fall. The Mountain West will play eight games in the fall as well, and an announcement from the MAC on a six-game season is expected in the next few days.
