Reports: Big Ten may reverse course, go on with revised fall season

Big Ten

MADISON, Wis. — Big Ten coaches, athletic directors and medical personnel are working on multiple plans for staging a football season —  including one that would have the league kicking off as soon as Thanksgiving weekend.

Multiple other reports Friday morning indicate that the Big Ten may try to go on with its fall season as originally planned.

At 11 a.m. Friday, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman tweeted that Big Ten coaches met to discuss the possibility of reversing their earlier decision to cancel the season. Feldman tweeted that he was told “it’s a real possibility” that the conference reverses course.

CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd tweeted that the tentative schedule could potentially start Thanksgiving week. Another version of the plan would start the season in January.

Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel first broke the story. “TBD if the league can make it all work,” Potrykus tweeted.

The Big Ten announced on Aug. 11 it was postponing its fall football season and has faced push back and criticism ever since.
