On a conference call with the College Football Playoff Management Committee, Vice President Mike Pence was told that college football wouldn’t come back until students are allowed on campus.

“Our players are students. If we’re not in college, we’re not having contests,” said Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, who was on the call, told CBS Sports.

He added, “Our message was, we need to get universities and colleges back open, that we were education-based programs, and we weren’t going to have sports until we had something closer to normal college going on.”

The CFP Management includes commissioners from the Power Five and Group of Five along with Notre Dame athletic director.
