Conference USA and the AAC will both have virtual media days during the coronavirus pandemic.

The virus is bringing sports as we know them to a halt and more and more conferences have had to adapt with the times. That includes moving to virtual media days. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, you can now add Conference USA and the AAC to the list, according to Brett McMurphy and Bruce Feldman.

That’s now multiple FBS conferences that have switched to virtual media days for the 2020 season. This trend isn’t stopping anytime soon.

Don’t be surprised if this becomes the normal. Now, no Power 5 team has announced they’re going virtual for media days, but I have to imagine that is right around the corner.

Media days are super fun, and I’m sucker for them for sure. I can’t get enough of the B1G media days. I love them.

At the same time, it’s just people being interviewed. All of that can be done virtually. Given the fact we’re in the middle of a crisis and we’re trying to save football, I agree with the move to go virtually.

It might seem like a big thing, but it shouldn’t make a big impact. It’s the safest option, and I expect bigger conferences to follow.
