The Big Ten presidents were presented with a comprehensive plan to host the fall football season on Sunday, but a final decision is still pending.
A person with direct knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press that the full Council of Presidents and Chancellors would hear the conference’s return to competition from all subcommittees of the task force in 2/2 hours. The man spoke on condition of anonymity because Big Ten does not publicly backtrack on its rivalry plans.
The man said the meeting broke up without the presidents and chancellors voting and without any definite plans to work with them again.
Still, if they act fast the Big Ten football Oct Kto. Can kick off just like the 17th weekend.
Focused on what has changed in the medical part of the presentation as the conference postponed the full fall sports season of its fall Gust 11, due to the concerns of COVID-19 and how to play football safely. The emergence of the daily quick-response COVID-19 test doesn’t look big when university leaders decide to pull the plug on the season.
If the Big Ten could start by the end of October, an eight-game season and conference championship game in mid-December is still possible. That schedule could set Big Ten teams to be part of the college football playoff fun.
