Many decisions expected to come on fall sports during B1G annual meeting next month
The early part of June might be when the B1G starts to reveal what the plan is for fall sports and the college football season. Not long into the month, the conferences presidents and chancellors are scheduled to meet.
ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reported on Friday that the annual meeting of B1G chancellors and presidents is scheduled for June 7. He expects it to be a key date on decisions about campuses opening up, the return of fall sports and other important items.
“We’re going to work out a lot of things,” Northwestern University President Morton Schapiro told Rittenberg.
The Big Ten presidents and chancellors have their annual meeting June 7, likely a key date for decisions on the fall sports season. "We're going to work out a lot of things," #Northwestern president Morton Schapiro, chair of league's council of presidents/chancellors, told me.

Right now, a handful of B1G universities have stated that they plan to re-open on-campus courses for the fall semester, though they also will have social distancing guidelines in place. Purdue, Nebraska and Iowa have all made those announcements, though it could change at any time.
Michigan State has not made a decision yet, but said it plans to have a decision made by July.
