College football is slated to kick off in less than three months.  There are plenty of reasons to be hopeful that games will be played Labor Day weekend.  Schools across the nation are taking the first cautious, detailed steps toward playing football in a pandemic. 

And the Associated Press has obtained a copy of an NCAA committee’s six-week plan for football teams to prepare for their seasons. 

It calls for two weeks of weight training, conditioning, film study and meetings with coaches before the start of a typical preseason practice schedule.  Teams would begin preseason practices 29 days before the date of their first game.  The plan has not been finalized. 

Nebraska’s season opener is scheduled for Memorial Stadium on September 5th, when the Huskers are slated to play Purdue.  Kickoff time is TBA.
