Big Ten announces conference-only sports schedule for Fall 2020, football included

The Big Ten will move forward this fall with a conference-only season for all fall sports, including college football.

Big Ten presidents and Ads say they prefer playing a conference only schedule that would eliminate ‘some long-distance travel’ and help keep teams compliant for coronavirus testing universally.  

The conference reach stretches from Nebraska to New Jersey. Just yesterday, Ivy League presidents announced all sports would be on hold Wednesday until at least January.

Ohio State, which is the No. 2 preseason ranked team by ESPN, reportedly suspended all volunteer workouts because of coronavirus.  The suspensions affected seven teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, and football programs.
