Big Ten Cancels Fall Football; Will Attempt For Spring Season

Here we go.

Pittsburgh v Penn State

EDIT: The Big Ten confirmed that football will not be played in the fall.


After a few days of the season being up in the air, it appears we finally have a resolution: the Big Ten will not play football this fall. Instead, it will postpone the season, with hopes of a spring season.

What happens next is anyone’s guess. James Franklin went on ESPN’s “Get Up!” today and once again stated that he will exhaust all options for his players. Would that mean trying to play a fall football season outside of the Big Ten? Who knows, but one would imagine that SEC and ACC teams — which continue to plan to play this fall — would be primed to target big-time transfers from Big Ten programs.
