Report: B1G cancelling 2020 football season
The B1G has reportedly made the decision to cancel the 2020 college football season. Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press reported on the news on Monday.
Radio host Dan Patrick was the first to make the statement on Monday, saying the B1G and Pac-12 were planning to announce the end of the college football season on Tuesday. Solari received a similar message from an anonymous source.
“The B1G and Pac-12 will cancel their football seasons tomorrow,” Patrick said. “The ACC and Big 12 are on the fence. The SEC is trying to get a delay to have teams join them. The SEC is looking at exclusive TV contracts.”
According to Patrick, the B1G presidents voted 12-2 to cancel the college football and fall sports season. The two schools voting to move forward with the season were Nebraska and Iowa.
The news comes after the MAC announced on Saturday that it would postpone fall sports until the spring, the first FBS conference to do so. It was also reported by the Detroit Free Press that B1G commissioner Kevin Warren would prefer a spring season.
