After two days of rumors, it’s finally official – the Big Ten won’t play football this fall. Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said Tuesday there was “too much uncertainty” at the moment to risk the safety of its student-athletes. However, officials are still holding out hope they’ll be able to play football in the spring.
Not every Big Ten school agreed with the decision. Nebraska officials including head coach Scott Frost say they’re hoping to play in the fall and are looking at “any and all options” to do so.
