Over the past months, there have been concerns for schools that play College Football on if it is safe enough to play due to COVID-19, and on Sunday night, it was rumored that the Big Ten was leaning towards canceling play this season for their conference.
We now have our answer.
On Tuesday, the Big Ten announced that they have decided to postpone the 2020 season for their conference. The Big Ten is the first school in the Power 5 conference to postpone their season. Although the Big Ten is postponing their season, they are hoping to play in the spring.
Other Power 5 conferences like the SEC, ACC, Pac-12, and Big 12 have not announced plans to cancel or postpone this season for their conference. The SEC already intends to move forward with its season while playing a conference-only schedule starting in late September, following suit with most FBS Conferences.
With the Big Ten postponing this season for their conference, they are now joining the Mid-American Conference as the only conferences postponing or canceling the College Football Season for their conference due to concerns with COVID-19.
