Big Ten Leaders Could Vote on Football Season Soon

Big Ten Championship Game

If the Big Ten could start by the end of October, a mid-game season and a conference championship game in mid-December are still possible. The medical subcommittee of the task force behind Big Ten's return to competition convened yesterday to discuss medical information, according to ESPN.

However, if they act quickly, Big Ten football could kick off early on the weekend of October 17th.

MADISON, Wis. - For the first time since the Big Ten shut down all fall sports on August 11, people familiar with the decision have transitioned from hopeful to confident the league's football teams will play in 2020.

Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren declined to offer specifics about the vote to scrap fall sports when it was first announced and Minnesota president Joan Gabel and Michigan State president Samuel Stanley indicated it wasn't really an official vote. The origins of the daily quick-response COVID-19 test were not available when university leaders made a decision to pull the plug on the season. Politicians, including President Donald Trump, have weighed in and eight Nebraska players are suing the conference to have the season reinstated. Politicians have pushed the conference to play, citing the protection of players' future opportunities. Maryland athletics are also on a workout pause due to COVID-19 concerns.

Officer running away while shooting man with knife
Body cam footage released by the department shows the suspect chasing the responding officer with a large knife in his hand. About 10 minutes later, Munoz left the home and chased the first officer to arrive at the scene.

Chryst is one of four coaches on the return-to-competition task force's scheduling committee.

New ways to test, and a new testing outlet with which to work, has the Big Ten leaders feeling more confident about playing. According to long-time sports broadcaster Dan Patrick, some Big Ten schools might not put their student-athletes on the field in 2020, no matter how the vote shakes out.

The Big Ten was the third FBS conference and first Power Five league to cancel the fall season. The conference schedule featuring only league games - revealed six days before the postponement announcement - had a number of potential make-up dates built in.
