Big Ten Football Reverses Decision to Cancel Season, Will Resume on October 24

The Big Ten college football conference has reversed its decision to postpone its season and will return to action starting October 24.

The league’s chancellors and presidents unanimously voted to resume competition with stronger COVID-19 testing starting September 30.

The league is aiming for each team to play eight games in the eight weeks leading up to the December 19 conference championship.

The conference season would then be completed before the December 20 Selection Day for the College Football Playoff.

While games will be held on school campuses, fans are not expected to be allowed to attend.
