The dream of opening the college football season in Australia will just have to wait.
Any plans to send Baylor and Cal abroad to play a 2016 season opener down under have been nixed.
Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com reported such news Friday afternoon.
Last month it was reported Baylor was openly discussing the possibility to open the 2016 season in Australia against a Pac-12 opponent. That opponent turned out to be Cal, although both schools would have had to opt out of season openers at home against FCS opponents. Doing so comes at a price, not to mention the lost revenue in hosting a football game for either. Throw in the expensive travel costs to ship a football program across the Pacific Ocean, and it is not difficult to see why these talks may have dissolved. Whether or not Baylor will continue to seek an opponent for a season-opening game abroad remains to be seen.
