Big Ten could return to play

The Wisconsin Badgers football team could play this season after all.


Sports outlets reported over the weekend that the conference's Return to Play Committee and the presidents and chancellors of the member schools met over the weekend to make a decision on possibly starting the season. Big Ten teams could start hosting games as soon as October 17th if they are able to meet certain protocols. The conference had originally postponed the fall season to the spring due to concerns about the COVID-19, but the development of rapid testing kits made it possible to get back to the negotiating table. Nine out of the 14 institutions would have to vote in favor of returning to play. A lawsuit involving players from the University of Nebraska revealed only three schools voted in favor of starting the fall season a few weeks ago: Nebraska, Iowa, and Ohio State. A decision could come later this week.
