EUGENE — Oregon wide receiver Mycah Pittman joined a growing number of Pac-12 players calling on California Gov. Gavin Newsom and the Pac-12 to allow the conference to begin its football season.

“Dear @pac12, I ask if you guys can give us players an option to opt in or out," Pittman said. "Display the risk of us playing this season and let us agree upon it. For you guys to take something away from me that I love so dearly it hurts and I had no option but listen. #WeWantToPlay

Pittman is the first Oregon player to join a growing group of Pac-12 players demanding the conference and in the case of California’s players, Gov. Newsom, to allow the season to start.

USC receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and quarterback Kedon Slovis were among a group of Trojans to issue an open letter to Newsom earlier Tuesday.

Cal quarterback Chase Garbers also tweeted #LetUsPlay directed to Newsom and the Pac-12.
