Big Ten Disputes Reports of No Football This Fall

The Big Ten will not play football this fall, according to several media reports. However, other reports say no decision has been made. 

Dan Patrick was the first to report on his radio show this morning that Big Ten presidents voted 12-2 not to play.  According to Patrick’s sources, only Nebraska and Iowa voted to play. 

Later this morning, the Detroit Free Press confirmed that move and its sources said a formal announcement by the Big Ten is expected tomorrow.  Since then, other reports from several media outlets cite a Big Ten spokesperson saying no vote has been taken. 

What’s also not clear is whether the football season could be moved to the spring, as some media reports have implied that by using the term “postponed,” while other reports say “canceled.” 

It was just last Wednesday that the Big Ten unveiled its revised football schedule for the fall.
