Is Big Ten Planning to Punt On Football in Fall?

Just days after the Big Ten unveiled a revised football schedule for the 2020 season, the conference presidents met last night to reportedly discuss at least postponing all fall sports until next spring. 

Sports Illustrated, citing anonymous sources, reported that the presidents are leaning toward a postponement.  Yahoo Sports says last night’s meeting “ended with an expectation that the season will be canceled in the upcoming days.” 

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos texted there may be “more to discuss” today after Big Ten athletic directors have a conference call. 

The league announced on Saturday that its teams can only practice in helmets – not in full-contact with pads – for the time being.
