UNDATED (AP) — Plans for the college football season — if it is played — should start coming into focus this week. They will trickle down from the top of major college football. The Power Five conferences are putting in place revised schedules they hope will make it easier to manage potential disruptions brought on by COVID-19. The Power Five commissioners talked a lot in the spring about the importance of collaboration and trying to launch the season together, with all of the Football Bowl Subdivision acting in unison. The way things are heading, that appears to be out the window.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — If Miami has a football season, D’Eriq King will be the Hurricanes’ starting quarterback. The Hurricanes made the announcement Monday that King, a redshirt senior transfer from Houston, will be the first-string quarterback when — or if — the season begins. Miami coach Manny Diaz made the decision public on the first day of the team’s second summer workout session. For now, Miami is scheduled to begin the season Sept. 5 at Temple. That date is in doubt, of course, because of the coronavirus pandemic and the effect it will have on college football schedules.
