ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS (August 11, 2020) — According to a story posted today from ESPN, the Big Ten Conference has made the decision to postpone all fall sports, including football, with hopes of playing in the spring.

PAC-12 presidents and chancellors are also meeting today, and are expected to vote on whether or not to continue with a fall schedule.
