One possible scenario that Pac-12 officials are considering is that sports could return as early as mid-November.
According to ESPN, the plan is the most aggressive among multiple options the league is considering.
The report comes after the conference joined a partnership with Quidel Corporation that provides rapid coronavirus testing.
The return to play is contingent on California and Oregon public health officials clearing athletes to resume practices.
In August, Pac-12 officials suspended all sports for 2020.
