The Big Ten won’t be playing football this fall because of concerns about COVID-19.
According to a report from Bruce Feldman on Tuesday, Aug. 11, the Big Ten presidents have voted to postpone the 2020 college football season with hopes of playing in the spring.
The move comes six day after the conference that includes historic programs such as Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State had released a revised conference-only schedule that it hoped would help it navigate a fall season with potential COVID-19 disruptions.
“As time progressed, … it became abundantly clear there was too much uncertainty regarding potential medical risks to allow our student-athletes to compete this fall,” said Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren on Tuesday.
