I guess they will play ACC teams. 
 

I kinda wish the ACC would tell them to kick rocks. 

That will never happen. Even as a non-football ACC school, their five annual games with ACC teams plus basketball, etc. are too valuable to send packing.

What is the impact of this on possible bowl games ?

Going to be tough for UL or UK to scrap together 6 conference wins...

I feel like the chances of non-playoff bowl games are less than zero.

If teams only play 10 games I’d imagine they drop the required win total. 
 

UofL can definitely get five conference wins this season.

If there is money to be made, bowl games will be played.

There is money to be made already that's been passed up. Look at how much money was lost at the end of the basketball season. Money will be lost by reduced fans at games...bowl games, right now I think are dead for 2020.

Normally I’d agree.

People are talking about colleges shutting down because of the loss of revenue.

The powers to be will ask the athletes to risk their health to keep the university and other athletic programs afloat. For a scholarship...

It would be hilarious if the ACC said they won’t play ND and ND ends up playing a schedule of 100% group of 5 schools. Then pulls a UCF after going undefeated and left out of the playoff but declares themselves national champs anyways. I’m actually rooting for this to happen.

Yes...Please let this happen!

I think several schools will do like Stanford and use the Pandemic as an excuse to trim the athletic budgets by eliminating fringe sports. 

No college is shutting down for the lack of athletic revenue as most colleges make little to no money from athletics above what is spent on athletics. They may shut down sports or cancel seasons for this year, but no school is surviving campus wide because of their earnings from sports. Schools are just happy if sports can pay for them selves.

Let's say all of the Big 5 schools have at least two losses this season and ND was undefeated against the MAC. There would be several that would be claiming that they were the best...that's what is sad. 😂
