Players from B1G, Pac-12 and MAC discuss not having opportunity to play football this fall
It’s been a tough month for student-athletes across the country. When it comes to football at the FBS level, four conferences have already opted to back out of a fall season, and hope to play again in the spring.
The first domino fell when the MAC decided to pass on a fall football season. It was the first conference at the FBS level to make the step, followed shortly after by the Mountain West. A few days later, the B1G became the first Power 5 league to back down, with the Pac-12 following suit.
Players in the B1G, MAC and Pac-12 spoke with ESPN about what it will be like to not play football this fall. What’s been a constant in so many lives across those four conferences has been taken away.
Below is the video ESPN shared on Friday:
