Sources: Big Ten pulls plug on fall college football season
August 11, 2020 2:15PM CDT
Big Ten Conference presidents and chancellors voted Tuesday to postpone all fall sports seasons, including football, with the hopes of playing in the spring, sources confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.
The league is expected to make a formal announcement later Tuesday once it notifies its players and coaches.
On Sunday, ESPN first reported that Big Ten presidents, following a meeting on Saturday, were ready to cancel the fall sports season, and they wanted to gauge whether commissioners and university presidents and chancellors from the other Power Five conferences — the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC — would fall in line with them.
