B1G teams, coaches react to news of reinstated football season
The B1G football season has officially returned!
Wednesday morning, the B1G announced that it has decided to reverse course and reinstate the fall football schedule. Thanks to advancements in testing, new medical information and health and safety protocols, the league’s presidents and chancellors believe it’s safe to return to competition.
The B1G’s announcement came more than a month after the B1G made the decision to postpone fall football, the first Power 5 league to do so. It’s now one of seven FBS conferences pushing forward with a fall schedule.
After the news broke, several teams and coaches from around the conferences celebrated with posts on social media. Here are some of the reaction to Wednesday’s huge news:
