After two days of rumors, it’s finally official – the Big Ten and Pac-12 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.
Another ‘Power 5’ football conference is calling off the fall season.
The Pac-12 voted unanimously to postpone the fall sports season and look at options for next year.
The announcement came shortly after the Big Ten officially postponed its fall season.
It’s not yet clear if the Pac-12 will attempt to play football in the spring.
As for the rest of the ‘Power 5’, the SEC and ACC have indicated they still plan on playing football in September, while Big 12 officials are reportedly split.
What do you think the remaining Power 5 conferences will do?
Will they actually play in the Spring?
