TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Arizona fans may soon get to cheer on their Wildcats again, but it may not happen this year.

On Friday, Sept. 18, the Pac-12 said a decision on resuming sports could come as early as next week.

According to a tweet, conference leaders will meet Thursday, Sept. 24 about returning to play before Jan. 1, 2021.

“The health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports will continue to be our number one priority in all of our decision making,” the conference said in a tweet.

The Pac-12 is the only Power Five conference that has not announced a return to play.

That included all fall sports, including football, basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, soccer, diving and volleyball.
